Gordon Ramsay sells Maida Vale gastropub The Warrington

Pub to be taken over by Faucet Inn Ltd who own nearby Red Squirrel

Gordon Ramsay has agreed to sell Maida Vale pub The Warrington after his estranged father-in-law put it on the market earlier this year.

The pub, in Warrington Crescent, will be taken over by Faucet Inn Ltd. The firm also acquired the Skiddaw pub on nearby Chippenham Road last year and converted it into the Red Squirrel.

Mr Ramsay and father-in-law Chris Hutcheson took over The Warrington in February 2008 and each own 50 per cent of the pub.

But the pair parted ways in acrimonious circumstances last October after a 12-year partnership and the pub was put on the market for �5.5million in March.

A spokeswoman for Mr Ramsay said: “We can confirm that the sale of The Warrington has been agreed and contracts have been exchanged with completion in August.

“The operation is not part of Gordon Ramsay Holdings but is jointly owned by Gordon Ramsay and Chris Hutcheson, both of whom have agreed to the sale.”

Built in 1857 as a hotel, the building, featuring a Grade II-listed saloon, was restored by Mr Ramsay to feature a dining area and pub with unique wooden panels and mosaic floor.

The acquisition sees the number of pubs owned by Faucet Inn exceed more than 20 in London and the south east. A company spokeswoman declined to comment until the sale was completed.
