New B+B relaunches Bar and Restaurant to Hampshire diners

The Old House Hotel in historic Wickham Square has received a facelift!

Now sitting proudly alongside her sisters in Belgravia, Edinburgh and Weymouth , B+B Wickham is the newest member of the B+B Collection.

The building boasts original features galore and the 12 bedrooms have been individually designed around this. Ornate fireplaces, sash windows and cosy nooks are complimented with great quality white cotton linen on super comfy beds. Bathrooms boast luxurious products, white fluffy towels and each room has a bath and shower. B+B Wickham is a stylish alternative to outdated bed and breakfasts and offers an  affordable alternative to the predictable 4* chain hotel.

Public areas have been freshened with a brand new colour scheme  – adding the unique B+B flash to the bar and reception areas. Design and quality are big parts of the B+B philosophy.


But there is a big difference between B+B Wickham and her sisters and that is The Old House Bar and Restaurant.

Building on already fine reputation , Chef Andy Millard has worked tirelessly to create a menu we are all super proud to shout about! Hampshire is bursting with food purveyors galore and our new menus celebrate this heritage. Paired with a wine by the glass list sourced by our in-house expert, we are in no doubt – The Old House Bar and Restaurant  will become THE food and drink destination of Wickham and Hampshire. … and if this wonderful weather holds for the summer – the suntrapped garden welcoming dogs will be the perfect al fresco venue for lazy lunches!

To help celebrate the opening, members of the B+B Collection Belong + Benefit Club are to receive an exclusive opening offer. Click here to read all about it!

B+B Belgravia and Team wish B+B Wickham and The old House Bar and Restaurant all the very best for their opening and launch on 20th July 2015.

The Window Displays

Without even entering the stores, the displays are fabulous! Here are a few of the most iconic and wonderful Christmas windows in London, each with their own theme to entice you in..

Fortnum & Mason have a Christmas Past theme with scenes of the River Thames frozen over. It was tradition to host great markets and events on the frozen waters and F&M have adorned  their windows with indulgent goodies and gifts all available inside!

Harrods is a must on the Christmas Window Display trail – just take a look at this Land of Make Believe – only Stella McCartney ballerina’s and fairies! Anyone not tempted to go inside the big wide doors must be seriously Bah-Humbug!

Ice -skating at The Natural History Museum

A visit to the NHM is a joy in itself – the walls ooze history and secrets. Watching children’s faces light up at the huge dinosaur displays is something for the memory bank for sure! Imagine combining a trip with real ice-skating outside? Well – it’s all possible until January 5th – wrap up warm!…although there is a great cafe for hot chocolate and sticky buns..oh and mulled wine!

We love independent boutique b+b Belgravia

We want to share our b+b and our Love of Belgravia ,  to explain why we are proud to be part of the boutique fabric of this independent neighbourhood.  Belgravia is quiet, peaceful and exclusive in comparison to it’s neighbours . Buildings are tall white townhouses organised in quiet streets and squares – it has always been considered a fashionable part of London and has attracted fashion houses – Jenny Packham’s  wedding boutique window is a joy and Allison Rodgers offers a discerning service to very high profile Belgravia residents including Cherie Blair and Nigella Lawson.

The independent spirit is alive. Just around the corner  is Elizabeth Street – home to Mungo and Maud – Luxury dog & cat accessories for the contemporary home & lifestyle. We love a browse here and often suggest our guests take their pooches for a perusal whilst staying with us!  And not to forget Peggy Porschen. I dare anyone to try to pass  without stopping to gaze at her inimitable fancy cupcakes and sipping on a capuccino whilst watching the world go by. Peggy offers a super range of baking courses and we provide 4* accommodation within walking distance of the famous pink front door. The artisan foodie culture is alive and well in Belgravia.  Olivo’s Sardinian collection has expanded into divine ice creams and gelatos whilst OlivoCarne still serves the best steaks around. No visit to Belgravia’s foodie scene is complete without a glass of something cheeky in the Ebury Street Wine Bar. Gourmet food acclaimed throughout the world and still going strong after 52 years!

Walking is  the way to explore – we are within 10 minutes easy stroll of Victoria Station – tube, rail and bus networks throughout the City and beyond. ..And just around the corner is the famous Buckingham Palace Road leading directly to the Palace and Parks. But this leads us away from Belgravia and perhaps we will explore further afield in our next blog…!
