history of the bishops table hotel and restaurant

Built in the early 1700's the bishops table hotel is a fine example of early Georgian architecture with its distinctive frontage, and original windows and shutters, all in perfect working order. It is set in a prominent position next to the library in West Street, one of the finest Georgian Streets in Surrey.

The building was once the home of The Marquis of Lothian who purchased it in 1808. He constructed and regularly used a pathway leading down through the beautiful two acre garden leading to the impressive St Andrew's Parish Church (the largest Parish Church in Surrey). The present owners have plans to further landscape this area. The Marquis is also reputed to have formed the first ladies cricket team in Farnham!

The hotel was used until 1919 for the education of Anglican Clergy.

The famous sculptress Sheila Mitchell lived here in rooms on the top floor during the twentieth century.
