A family-owned restaurant that opened in May in Shipston-on-Stour in the Midlands has now made a move into the hotel market with the launch of five new boutique bedrooms.
The Grade-II listed The Bower House opened its doors just three months ago under new ownership the Knights, a local family, with the launch overseen by Henry Harris formerly chef patron at Knightsbridge institution Racine.
The general manager is Edward Cambridge, formerly of Soho Farmhouse.
Now the 72-cover restaurant has opened five bedrooms on its second and third floors, thanks to work by architects Stiff+Trevillion to convert the building above and interiors overseen by Liana Braune, previously curator at The Museum of Everything.
The rooms have been individually designed with a mix of antique, vintage and contemporary furniture set against heritage colour palettes.
All have Hypnos beds and boast fabrics and wallpapers from British manufacturers, such as Timorous Beasties, House of Hackney and Barneby Gates.
Breakfast is served in the restaurant, with trendy dishes such as avocado and ricotta on offer. Brunch is also available at the weekends until 2pm for both guests and not-residents.
