About The Bishops Table Hotel
Thanks! You'll receive an email as soon as the property answers your question.
The Bishops Table is has been regenerated to offer Farnham’s newest and most up-to-date boutique hotel bedrooms. With minimum queen size double beds, and with rooms reflecting the rich history of the town by being named after famous occupants of the town from Bishops and writers to actresses and world champion formula 1 drivers, it is really the best town centre hotel to relax and unwind. Dating from the 1750’s, the Bishops Table Hotel is a fine example of the Georgian architecture found in Farnham. With a past ranging from being the home of the Marquis of Lothian, to being a doctors surgery and a priests training house owned by the Bishop of Winchester, the building became a hotel in the early 1960’s. The building is currently undergoing a transformation with brand new rooms opening in April 2016, and when completed, the hotel will boast 25 boutique rooms including a wheelchair access room, and with brand new bar and function room. One thing that has not changed is our legendary welcoming and attentive service, and we strive to live up to our motto – ‘Arrive as Guests – Leave as Friends’. See what our guests have said about our new rooms, and we look forward to seeing you!
Farnham is a beautiful market town with predominantly Georgian architecture on the edge of the South Downs and Jane Austen country. It built its wealth originally in cloth, and later in growing high quality hops. Modern Farnham has a delightful range of restaurants, bars, and shops for a visitor, as well and a range of museums and galleries, and a thriving arts centre. The town has a rich history, and was the site of the battle of Fearnhamme in c893ad, when the Saxons defeated the Vikings. Since then the town has been entwined with English Monarchy, including Henry Vlll being a regular visitor, and the town was the scene of much fighting in the Civil War. There has been a wide range of notable people in the town and surrounding area from Mike Hawthorn to Jane Austen. The Bishops Table has reflected this past in the new boutique bedrooms. The town has easy links to the main roads of the south, and is close to Winchester, Portsmouth and Guildford - it is also less than an hour by train from London. The hotel and town is a popular base for those visiting the Farnborough Airshow, the Goodwood Revival and Festival of Speed, and the horse racing at Glorious Goodwood and Ascot.
