Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is believed to have found a third pub - the Devonshire Arms in Chiswick, west London.
Ramsay, who has one pub open and another about to open, is said to be ready to bid on the suburban gastropub.
Ramsay paid an estimated £5.2 million for the freehold of the Warrington Hotel in London's Maida Vale, which is to re-open shortly.
His first venture, the Narrow Street Kitchen and Dining Room in London's Limehouse, is a S&NPE lease.
Ramsay is rumoured to have paid around £100,000 for the lease before spending £400,000 on a refurbishment.
His company, Gordon Ramsay Holdings, already operates nine restaurants in London.
