A familiar fixture in Stevenage old town has almost finished its revamp – ready to transform a historical space into a bar and brasserie.
The Cromwell Hotel is set to launch a ‘British Brasserie’ in an area of the historic building that had been previously occupied by meeting rooms.
A stud wall has been stripped out to create a large open plan space where there was once five small rooms – with an original antique fireplace, previously hidden away in one of the meeting rooms set to feature in the new brasserie.
A spokesman said: “The new owners, the Distinct Group, who bought the hotel in November 2015 are of restoring this historically important building back to its former glory and returning it to the heart of the community.
“The British Brasserie will have local sourced, freshly cooked food and British beers from local breweries – with Alfie Smith and Carl Wick joining the team as head chefs.”
