Worplesdon Place near Guildford opens on March 17 following a £1,000,000 renovation project undertaken by new owners, Redcomb Pubs Ltd. The 19th century country manor house was purchased by the pub operator in September 2015, who have worked hard to reinstate the venue to its former glory as a boutique country pub with rooms.
Worplesdon Place has traded for many years as a mid-range small hotel under mass market brand owners such as Beefeater, Premier Inn and Bespoke Hotels. Redcomb Pubs acquired the site to add to its growing portfolio of pubs with rooms, taking its total number of rooms across the group to over 100.
Situated in leafy Surrey, Worplesdon Place has been stylishly and sympathetically re-designed to enhance the character of the original building and the stunning surroundings in which it is set. New look Worplesdon Place incorporates an elegant family friendly dining area, rustic and retro bar area fitted with an eye-catching backdrop of real ales and premium wines, spirits and soft drinks and an appealing al fresco terraced dining area, perfect for leisurely lunches and warm summer eves. The venue also incorporates 29 updated and individually designed boutique en-suite bedrooms, including bridal suite, luxury and mid-range bedrooms and a ground floor fully accessible bedroom.
The new menu developed and delivered for the site by experienced Group Head Chef, Chris Spencer, features a medley of traditional pub classics made with prime locally sourced ingredients, a flame grilled rotisserie section, stone baked pizzas, and for the more adventurous, a seasonal specials menu catered to today’s more discerning diner.
Set within two acres of stunning landscaped gardens and its own lake, Worplesdon Place is also set to become one of Surrey’s favourite wedding destinations. With imaginative wedding packages to suit all budgets, an opulent reception room and revamped boutique bridal suite, Worplesdon Place offers couples-to-be a charming and characterful venue in which to tie the knot.
Serving the booming business community of Surrey and the surrounding area, Worplesdon Place also offers a range of conference and meeting packages, catering for all number of delegates and accommodating both day and 24 hour requirements.
Commenting on the re-opening of Worplesdon Place, Dan Shotton, Managing Director of Redcomb Pubs Ltd says;
“We are delighted to re-launch this stunning venue back into the local community, and committed to delivering a country pub that continues to meet and exceed our guests’ expectations. We’ve developed a strong business across the Redcomb Pubs portfolio that centres on delivering simple, seasonal, freshly cooked food at sensible prices, an interesting range of wines and beers, top notch hospitality and a friendly relaxed environment. When redeveloping Worplesdon Place these were the very fundamentals that we hinged the business on, and we are now excited to see our efforts and investment come into fruition through the creation of a fabulous country pub, individually styled and focussed on serving both the local population and those from further afield.”
