GUY RITCHIE is starting a music label and a brewery, both linked to his Mayfair pub, The Punchbowl.
The first act signed by the Sherlock Holmes director is The Punchbowl Band, who are the house band at the pub and he’s taken trademarks out on the names Punch Bowl Ales and Punch Bowl Beers, ready for his brewery enterprise.
"It's exciting to venture into the music industry," said Ritchie.
"It's a tough place but I've seen this band connect with people. They have every chance of being embraced by a wider audience."
It all represents a solid comeback for the Punchbowl, which was threatened with closure last year after complaints about nosie and bad behaviour from the neighbours.
