Butcombe Pub and Inns has led an extensive renovation to restore the building in partnership with design and build specialists Concorde BGW. The hotel’s original shopfront façade has been redesigned to feature bordered tiling, high ceilings, sash windows and exposed timber staircases – leading to the bedrooms set over three floors.
The bedroom interiors have been created with a “laid-back and luxurious home-from-home” feel featuring statement pieces of furniture and individual pieces of art. Each room also comes with king size beds, Wifi, Roberts Radios, rain head showers, mini-fridges, and Smart TVs.
The grade-II listed property, dating back to 1885, also features a café by day and a speakeasy bar, The Blind Pig, by night. The Blind Pig bar, expected to open at the end of July, will serve Butcombe beers, cocktails, local spirits, wines, charcuterie and cheeses.
Jayson Perfect, managing director of Pubs and Inns at Liberation Group, said: “Broad Street Townhouse is a passion project of ours and one we’ve long had in mind – since taking over the Pig and Fiddle pub next door back in 2015.
“It was a shame to see such a beautiful building, filled with original features, sat empty in disrepair – but so rewarding to get stuck into the renovation and bring it all back to life. We’re very much looking forward to welcoming our first overnight guests and inviting in the local people of Bath to experience our new café and bar.”
