Bull Terrier Pub

This is a former public house, set in the village of Croscombe in the Mendip Valley, converted to a bed and breakfast establishment. The brief also includes providing a residence for the proprietor, by converting the old stables. Our practice gained the required change of use, planning and listed building consents.

The main building follows the traditional pattern of a mediaeval house and was rebuilt in the last part of the 15th century. It has an inglenook bar - once the Main Hall, and had a fireplace and ceiling added in the 16th century. 'The Rose and Crown' as it was originally known was first granted a license to sell ale in 1612 and can truly claim to be one of Somerset's oldest pubs.

Over the years the cellarage had expanded, filling an original courtyard area. The aim was to convert this to provide an alfresco dining space and at the same time allow more daylight into the proposed rooms.
