Residents disappointed over Ramsay’s plans for old bank

Residents disappointed over Ramsay’s plans for old bank
The former Lloyds Bank building in Fowey

CELEBRITY chef Gordon Ramsay has reportedly splashed out nearly £2m for the former Lloyds bank building in Fowey.  

The Voice first revealed in August that Ramsay had set his sights on the property in the town.
It is understood that Ramsay paid £1.96m for the grade II listed building by eminent Cornish architect Silvanus Trevail.

Ramsay and his wife, Tana, were spotted in Fowey over the summer months prompting rumours that the restauranteur and TV personality had bought the three-storey building on Fore Street.

Many believed the chef would be turning the building into one of his famous restaurant, but plans suggest it will become one of his personal residences.

Lloyds closed the branch on September 18, 2015 after being selected for closure because customers were using it less often and the property was sold last year for £785,000.

A pre-application on behalf of Andy Wenlock - managing director of Gordon Ramsay Holdings - has been submitted to Cornwall Council to change the ground floor of the building from retail to residential.

This is the third property Ramsay has bought in Cornwall.

Many residents have been left disappointed by the news as they were hoping Ramsay would be opening a new restaurant in Fowey.
