Melbourne pub baron Bruce Dixon has taken control of six of Sydney's most popular bars, but has no interest in buying Jamie's Italian.

Following the demise of Keystone Group, Dixon Hospitality Group have acquired Bungalow 8, Cargo Bar, The Rook, The Winery, Manly Wine and Kingsley's Woolloomooloo.

However, Dixon has decided against buying the celebrity chef's six restaurants from the Keystone Group, suggesting the restaurant doesn't fit with the core strategy of the business.

He also decided against buying Chophouse in Sydney for the same reason, the Daily Telegraph advised.

Any sale of the six Jamie Oliver's restaurants cannot go ahead until it is approved by the celebrity chef himself.

Dixon already boasts an impressive portfolio that includes 26 venues in Melbourne, three pubs in the Riverina and a bar in Brisbane.

He now has 13 venues in Sydney after adding the most recent six. He has two venues at Barangaroo and The Norfolk Hotel and Forresters in Surry Hills.
