The Sunday Papers have reported that Madonna and her husband, Guy Ritchie, have bought their very own Mayfair pub - The Punchbowl in Farm Street.
The Sunday People claims that "Madge" paid £2.5million for the freehold of the notorious pub, which is popular with celebrities and was once owned by London gangster, Freddie Foreman. The People quotes Foreman as saying: ""It's great news. Madonna and Guy are a lovely couple and I've met them a few times at the pub. It's a gorgeous place. Guy likes to have a pint and watch Arsenal". The paper goes onto claim that the couple are considering turning it into a gastro pub or a members club. One can only imagine what the regulars may make of that.
The Punchbowl actually featured in the Madonna documentary, I'm Gonna Tell You A Secret. See her and Guy relaxing at the pub in the videoclip below, and she even pulls a pint. Is this a case of, "I liked it so much I bought the pub" ?
