    Default The Churchgate Hotel - The Chantry House - Aug 2015


    At the south end of Churchgate Street stands the 16th-century Chantry House, later to become the Churchgate hotel.

    It was built after the Reformation on land that had formed the endowment of John of Staunton's chantry in the parish church.



    It was bought by Alexander Stafford in 1615 and was sold some time after his death in 1652 to Samuel Harrison, whose descendants sold it to J. W. Perry-Watlington in 1855.

    The building, timber-framed and plastered, had a fine doorway and original features, but has been much altered in the 20th century.

    Closed earlier this year and it's future is uncertain as a planning application to convert it into apartments has fallen through

    No it wouldn't, it's miles away from me! It is a nice place though, although I suspect it was even nicer pre hotel "modernisation". Thanks nelly.

    This place looks great! I love that the drinks menus are still written above the bar!
