Liam Gallagher wants to buy a London pub.

The Beady Eye frontman has recently moved into a multi-million pound mansion with his former assistant Debbie Gwyther, just around the corner from his estranged wife Nicole Appleton's home, and he is now considering becoming the landlord of a drinking den in the same area of north London.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Liam has been asking about the status of a pub called The Rosslyn Arms, which is between his new house and the home he shared with Nicole.

''He's always drinking in the area and thinks it'll be a good investment.''

Liam is known as a rock 'n' roll hellraiser and is a regular drinker in the pubs in that area of the UK capital.

In April, the former Oasis star had been enjoying a heavy boozing session with friends at The Old White Bear pub in Hampstead, north west London, when he tried to ride a dog - in an apparent attempt to recreate a scene from Seth MacFarlane's comedy movie 'Ted'.

Liam and Nicole's five-year marriage ended in July after it emerged he had fathered a lovechild with American Journalist Liza Ghorbani.

It was then revealed Liam - who has 12-year-old son Gene with Nicole and two other children from different relationships - had been having an affair with Debbie.

Removal men were spotted taking items from the £5 million house he shared with Nicole earlier this month, including a guitar, Sex Pistols and The Beatles posters, a table and many of his clothes after he started divorce proceedings, hiring Sir Paul McCartney's former divorce lawyer, Fiona Shackleton.
