Take a look at 'country house in the town centre'
DESCRIBED as a “country house in the town centre”, the brains behind 129 to 131 The Promenade aim to bring something new to Cheltenham.
There are less than 10 weeks to go before the grade II-listed building is opened to guests.
The guts are currently being ripped out by workmen, before it is later transformed to an “informal house” stuffed with comfy sofas, cosy real fires, snooker tables, wine and cigars, as a restaurant and hotel.
The imposing building is the dream of husband and wife team, Sam and Georgie Pearman, who run their own hospitality group, The Lucky Onion Company, which manages the Tavern in Cheltenham, the Wheatsheaf Inn in Northleach and The Chequers in Churchill.

Chef Sam, formerly a professional rugby player for Gloucester who trained at Langan’s Brasserie in London’s Mayfair, is going to present a modern English menu to diners.
Georgie, who gave up a career as a city lawyer to work with her husband, said the building will have two floors of informal dining and 11 rooms above, but they will work as independent entities within the property.
It is expected to feature two bars, a restaurant, wine room, private dining rooms and a games room, as well as a cigar room.
Although there are high ceilings and enormous windows, the building retains a cosy quality.
“It’s supposed to feel like a house,” said Georgie. “There will be a separate entrance at the side of the building for bedrooms. We are going to put antiques baths in them and British linens and some of the rooms will be small and some are going to be massive.
“We can offer a more restauranty experience on the upper ground floor.”
The launch party is planned for November 23 and the venue should be open for customers the following week.
