Upham Pub Company has opened a new boutique hotel in Haslemere, following a £2m investment.
The company has launched The Station House, which marks the group’s 15th site up and running in the UK. The new property comprises 16 boutique bedrooms, plus a pub and brasserie with 170 covers.
Spread over two floors, The Station House has been given a complete refurbishment by local designers Simmons Associates from Grayshott. The new-look original Victorian inn has been inspired by a French brasserie feel, while drawing on the property’s railway heritage.
More than 50 full and part time jobs have been created as part of The Station House launch, with team members recruited from the local area and existing Upham sites.
Chris Phillips, CEO of Upham Pub Company, said: “We’ve always wanted to bring an Upham pub to Haslemere; it’s a vibrant town and The Station House will bring a unique all-day dining and drinking experience to its existing food and drink scene.”
Philip Simmons, director of Simmons Associates, comments: “We are thrilled to be working with Upham again on another of their exciting projects. This site is our biggest refurbishment for Upham to date and we are delighted to bring an Upham project so close to home. Our brief was a French Brasserie theme, but we have tried to retain the important railway heritage of this site and also to offer stylish and comfortable overnight guest accommodation.”
