Johnny Depp is said to be looking for a weekend retreat in London. The actor and his fiancée Amber Heard are keen to buy a base that will allow them to take regular short breaks in the UK, says Heard’s father, David.
Earlier this year Depp, who co-owned The Viper Room club in Hollywood for 14 years, was looking for a UK pub to buy and asked pal Shane MacGowan, frontman of The Pogues, to help the search.
Depp is often seen in Marylebone when in town, so The Harcourt Arms, listed for £3 million with Fleurets, may appeal — and he could convert the top floors of the four-storey Grade II-listed pub into a pied-à-terre.
Billed as “a corner of Sweden in the heart of London” the pub’s far-from-Scandi decor needs a revamp. Surely king of cool Depp could give it an edgier look.
