The Home Bar and Restaurant in Hoxton has been acquired by John Ross, the multiple bar and pub operator, for a premium of £470,000. The venue on Leonard Street, which trades on the ground floor and basement of a converted warehouse, was sold by Wise Guys who had run the bar for the last 12 years. The new owner, who also runs Dust bar in Farringdon and The Pelican food-led pub in Notting Hill, plans to continue running the concept as a going concern. Davis Coffer Lyons handled the sale.
