Chinese firm buys UK Prime Minister's local pub

A Chinese company has bought a British pub in the Buckinghamshire countryside just outside London.

The Plough at Cadsden became famous last year when former Prime Minister David Cameron brought Chinese President Xi Jinping there for a friendly pint.

Cadsden is a few minutes away from the prime minister’s official countryside residence at Chequers.

Peter Zhang, managing director of SinoFortone Investment group, said: “The English pub concept is growing very fast in China and it’s the best way culturally to link people from different countries and build friendships.”
