Fuller, Smith & Turner has purchased four gastro pubs in London, for an undisclosed fee, rumoured to be around £8m. The company has bought the Stonemason’s Arms in Hammersmith, the Mason’s Arms in Battersea, Grand Union in Ladbroke Grove and the Pilot in Chiswick. Simon Emeny, Fuller’s retail director, said: "These well-known pubs are a perfect fit with our existing estate, especially those pubs with a particular focus on quality dining. "We are looking to increase the size of our estate, and these pubs are a great addition. They will enhance our portfolio and suit our strategy of focusing on great food, cask ale, wine and service."
