This is the careful restoration of a historic pub, and the introduction of a new-build three-storey building in its yard to house a guest lodging plus kitchen and administrative rooms connected to the pub.

The new three storey building is a contemporary interpretation of Georgian architecture. Traditional materials and methods mean it sits comfortably next to the old pub, separated by a dramatic glazed slot, while the crisp simplicity of the form, hard edge parapets and deep reveals are unashamedly contemporary. It succeeds in being a sustainable pub that will engage and serve locals for years to come.
