The Station House in Haslemere, a refurbished original Victorian Inn which sits opposite the market town’s train station, is ‘unlike any other Upham pub’, according to the group’s CEO Chris Phillips.
The site, whichopened on Tuesday [23 November] following a £2million investment, offers 16 boutique bedrooms, as well as a 170-cover pub and brasserie and a glass fronted café geared towards the daytime trade.
It follows an art deco theme which also celebrates the site’s railways heritage.
All day dining
“We’ve always wanted to bring an Upham pub to Haslemere; it’s a vibrant town and The Station House offers a unique all-day dining and drinking experience to the food and drink scene,” Phillips said.
“It makes for the perfect destination for commuters to pop in for their morning breakfast, coffee on the go, or for an after work drink and we look forward to welcoming the people of Haslemere through The Station House doors.”
Since 2012, the Upham Group has ‘sympathetically restored’ and reopened numerous pubs and inns across the south of England.
Philip Simmons, director of Simmons Associates, the local designers that took on the latest project said: “We are thrilled to have worked with Upham on their biggest refurbishment to date.
"Our brief was a French Brasserie theme, but we have retained the important railway heritage of the site and also to offer stylish and comfortable overnight guest accommodation and intriguing all-day dining experience.”
