Top 10 famous pub landlords

Ed Sheeran

Flame-haired pop sensation Ed Sheeran loves beer so much he built a private pub underneath his north London home, which can be accessed via a secret subterranean tunnel.

Sheeran revealed the news of the clandestine drinking den in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, telling the presenter his private pub boasts a selection of beers on tap.

The singer was inspired to install the secret watering hole and underground tunnel in his house having visited film director Peter Jackson’s home.

“Peter Jackson’s house has got loads of secret passageways and underground tunnels. I went there and was like I want all of this on a smaller scale,” Sheeran said.

A big part of the appeal for Sheeran is the fact that he can invite revelers over to his underground pub without them causing havoc in his house.

    The Grapes is the only one on the list that I’ve visited. I like to vacation in London, and on a Monday in June 2017, I arrived, saw a posting on FB from Sir Ian, saying he was personally hosting a pub quiz, and immediately decided to be there. The pub is narrow, and it was packed that night, but the quiz was great fun, and I shook the man’s hand as he left at the end of the evening. Now it’s a must-go place for me every time I visit London.
