Chef Daniel Cameron, who was trained by Gordon Ramsay at his Maze restaurant in London, has bought a pub-restaurant in Milton Keynes with his father, Duncan.
Daniel plans to boost the sales of food at the Navigation Inn, which currently accounts for 50% of the business's £440,000 annual turnover.
The Navigation Inn, which is on the Grand Union canal, provides 100 seats across three indoors trading areas and another 100 seats in the canal-side garden.
The Buckinghamshire inn also has the potential to provide letting accommodation.
The Oxford office of Davey & Co sold the leasehold off a guide price of £195,000 on behalf of Harvey Willis, who is planning to buy small hotel.
