Project Description

Refurbishment of historic pub in Sherborne Dorset.

The Cross Keys is an important 3 storey Grade II Listed Building set in the centre of the Sherborne Conservation Area.


The building had become run down and badly dated over many years.  Our job was to sensitively up-date and simplify this complex building to create a mini hotel with restaurant below. We transformed an ordinary town centre pub into an attractive bar and restaurant at ground floor with 4 up-market bedrooms above.  Removal of unsightly, inappropriate and intrusive alterations from its past has returned the building to a more original appearance and form.


An outdoor sitting and dining area has been created in the formerly unusable rear yard.


This refurbishment has transformed this rather dowdy building into a major town centre attraction.
