The Courthouse, the newly-launched hotel from family-run hotel group Flat Cap Hotels, has opened a new rooftop garden.
The Cheshire Grade-II boutique, which launched to the public in 2017, is run by brothers Dominic and Oliver Heywood, who have now unveiled a new rooftop space, which will serve small plates and afternoon tea by day and transform into an Champagne and cocktail bar by night.
The rooftop gardens have been in the planning since The Courthouse first opened and have been designed by the Heywoods, with furniture from Ikon Furniture in Manchester.
Alongside the seasonal flowers, fragrant pots and plants, there will also be a chef’s garden with specially-selected botanical herbs.
The Gardens will be open from 11am until midnight seven days a week, with executive chef Steven Tuke in charge of the new menu.
Located in the Cheshire town of Knutsford, the Courthouse is a Grade-II listed building, designed by George Moneypenny and built in 1818. The former home of Knutsford Crown Court, the Georgian property has been sensitively restored by Flat Cap Hotels, who also run The Vicarage, a refurbished 17th century Grade II listed country pub and hotel in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire.
This summer also sees the launch of the first phase of bedrooms in the East and West wings of the property; 11 individually-designed bedrooms, with a further 40 due by 2020.
