New B+B relaunches 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 B+B Wickham is a stylish alternative to outdated bed and breakfasts and offers an  affordable alternative to the predictable 4* chain hotel.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 Edinburgh 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.

Food Events in Edinburgh

A trip to Scotland’s capital city is not going to leave you feeling hungry – the city is bursting with a colourful foodie scene ranging from  funky street vendors to fine high end cuisine.

A good way to plan your adventure is to hook in to the thriving Food Festival Calender and book your B+B around the one that tickles most!

See below for a quick look at some of the festival’s and events we at B+B Edinburgh really really rate:

Edinburgh Farmers Market : held every Saturday under  the backdrop of the Castle – this is the largest market in Scotland. Over 55 purveyors, producers, farmers and distributors trade alongside bakers, butchers, home cooks and professional chefs to create a bustling market – 15 minutes walk from B+B Edinburgh’s front door.

Stockbridge Market: Edinburgh’s ‘other’ farmers market – held every Sunday in Edinburgh’s bohemian quarter – a passion for small traders, this market also sells Arts and Crafts and is a fab place to choose Christmas presents.

Cookery Schools: Edinburgh’s New Town Cookery School offers a whole range of courses for all abilities. Boasting fantastic  views across the Firth of Forth, classes can be short and sweet or residential including B+B with us. Closer to us is in Stockbridge is  Cookingmania – Edinburgh’s newest cookery school. This  offers a homely feel, where  families are also welcome.
