Madonna buys Mayfair pub

Published:  23 July, 2008

Pop queen Madonna has bought her local pub, in Mayfair, London, for 2.5million.

The singer, who admits a penchant for Timothy Taylor's Landlord beer, has snapped up The Punchbowl from friend Greg Foreman - son of former Kray twins gangster Freddie Foreman.

A friend of the the pop star told The People newspaper: "She absolutely adores the pub. They pop in regularly to get away from it all.

"Madonna loves the beer and Guy meets all his pals down there. They have been desperate to own this place for a long time, and have been making offers on it for ages. Now it has finally happened."

The pub was built in the 1730s, and is situated in Farm Street.
