Gordon Ramsay Holdings (GRH) has denied that The Devonshire is for sale claiming its appearance on the listings of a restaurant property website was "an administrative error"

According to industry publication Caterer, rumours began circulating after The Devonshire along with and Knightsbridge private dining room Sloane Street appeared in the “for sale” section on the website of property agent Restaurant Property on Wednesday only to be removed hours later.

A spokesperson for GRH said that the Devonshire Road gastropub was not for sale and is trading as normal.

The Devonshire was the third of Ramsay’s gastro pubs opened by his right hand man Mark Sargeant who made the headlines this week for reasons other than his Michelin starred talents in the kitchen.

Speaking about The Devonshire, Chiswick resident Sargeant told, “I know we’re at the wrong end of Devonshire Road, but it’s the end of my road; this is where I live… It’s is a local pub for local people.”

Sloane Street by Gordon Ramsay, formerly known as La Noisette, was also headed by Sargeant and opened in July 2006.

Last week it was reported that Ramsay Holdings had failed to file accounts for the second year running. The company could be facing a court case.
