Teetotal comedian Russell Brand has reportedly bought a pub in Pishill.

The comic lives in nearby Henley-on-Thames with wife Laura Gallacher, TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher's younger sister.

They have bought the Grade II-listed The Crown Inn, a 16th century coaching inn which was on the market in April with starting offers of £850,000, according to Mail Online.


Estate agent Rightmove described it: "The picturesque backdrop of the grounds makes the property an ideal choice for weddings and events and attracts plenty of trade throughout the year.

"The property has an additional two-bedroom self-contained cottage within the grounds."

The property has a large front paved patio area, gravel car park with 35 spaces and large rear lawned garden, with 120 seats.

Russell has been sober since 2003, rejecting alcohol and substances after a well-documented history with addiction.

He is also vegetarian, and at times vegan.

In 2013, he told The Guardian: “It has been ten years since I used drugs or drank alcohol and my life has improved immeasurably. I have a job, a house, good friendships and generally a bright outlook. The price of this is constant vigilance because the disease of addiction is not rational… [Recovery] requires incredible support and fastidious structuring.”

Russell, 46, started out as a presenter on MTV and now lives quietly with two children, two dogs, eight cats and five chickens.
