Pub and hotel operator Young’s are set to launch a new 17 room boutique-style hotel complete with pub and dining room in the Surrey village of Claygate.
Launching this October, following an investment of £3 million, The Foley builds on the success of The Alma Wandsworth, and as such has been designed to be a modern day coaching inn by offering eating, drinking and sleeping all under one roof.Preserving the key features of the original 18th century structure, The Foley’s design-led bedrooms will provide many of the comforts and amenities expected of a modern hotel. Working closely with leisure specialists ADS Design, each room will offer contemporary bold décor, bespoke furniture and textured fabrics. In-room facilities that range from luxury bed linen to flat screen TVs, spacious bathrooms with walk in showers, complimentary Wi-Fi and mini-bars as standard.
The pub and dining room will be at the heart of The Foley, providing a hub for locals and visitors looking for somewhere to relax, drink and dine from breakfast through to dinner. With the option to eat in the bar or dining room, a menu of seasonal dishes will also be on offer throughout the day including daily specials and a menu of traditional British bar snacks, all cooked to order. Many ingredients will be sourced from local producers in and around the town, including award-winning meat from The Game Larder in Claygate as well as a selection of fish from the local fishmonger Williams & Bunkell.
Complementing the food, the drinks offer will include an array of Young’s signature cask ales and craft beers as well as an extensive wine list featuring a wide range of new and old world favourites served by the bottle or the glass.
Patrick Dardis, Young’s Retail Director, said: “The considerable investment in The Foley illustrates our commitment to adding value to and growing our hotel estate. The coaching inn concept is a natural evolution for the brand, allowing us to offer quality food, drink and accommodation under one roof, always retaining the pub’s identity within its community”.
