Fuller, Smith & Turner has reopened The Half Moon in Herne Hill following a 15-month extensive refurbishment, which has seen the addition of 12 new boutique bedrooms.
This Victorian gem has been restored to its former glory by hospitality interiors company Concorde BGW, with the original windows, woodwork and painted mirrors in the snug brought back to life.
The 12 boutique bedrooms have each been named after one of the 12 men who have walked on the moon, and the property becomes the largest hotel in the Fullers portfolio.
To the rear of the pub, the newly opened up dining area offers a light and airy space, while the landscaped garden comes with an outside bar, fire pit and barbecue.
The bedrooms feature House of Hackney wallpaper, an eclectic mix of reclaimed and antique furniture, Roberts’ radio’s and bespoke Lunar themed lights, which is a recurring theme across the pub.
Fuller’s Inns managing director Jonathon Swaine said: “The Half Moon has set a new standard, not just in Fuller’s – but for the wider industry, in how to sympathetically refurbish a historic pub. The Half Moon has a history and heritage that deserves to be recognised and respected – and I truly believe we have succeeded in doing that.”
Fullers have worked closely with Concorde BGW on countless refurbishments including the award-winning Tap on the Line in Kew Gardens which scooped a Restaurant & Bar Design award in 2015.
The team at The Half Moon are headed up by Matt Dutson, an experienced Fuller’s manager who is ready to welcome guests back to the property.
