A family-run restaurant in Haverhill has revealed plans to open its first six boutique bedrooms in 2018, as part of an ambition plan to bring something new to the area and restore an iconic building.
The owners of Haverhill’s Nine Jars Bistro has completed a £1m investment into the 17th century building to create six new bedrooms, due to open in 2018.
CXG Group acquired the derelict building in 2015 and had an ‘ambitious vision’ to bring something new and fresh to Haverhill.
The first phase of the project saw a new Bistro open in late 2016, with the family-run restaurant proving successful within the first few months of launch.
Now another part of the building is to be reimagined as the Nine Jars Boutique Hotel, with its first six refurbished rooms ready to open in the new year.
The rooms offer two deluxe suites, plus three king-sized room and one single room, with each room boasting free Wifi, smart TVs and Nespresso coffee machines.
A third stage of development to open another six bedrooms will begin in ‘due course’.
Co-founder of CXG Group, Daniel Pilley, said: “Haverhill is very much on the up and our investment into the former run-down building reflects our confidence in the town’s future growth and prosperity.
“Being such an iconic building in the town we were keen to revive it after it closed its doors as The Bell four years ago. We wanted to ‘bring it back to life’ and honour its significance in the town. The buildings history dates back to the 17th century when it was a popular drinking establishment and coaching inn for travellers on their way to London.
“There is so much potential with the building and the business over the next few years, so watch this space!”
