Inside the Alderley Edge Hotel

A new bar and restaurant has opened at the Alderley Edge Hotel in the affluent Cheshire town which bears its name as the first phase of a £2.5m refurbishment programme set to complete by Easter.

The hotel is owned by the Lees-Jones family, who run the JW Lees Brewery.

General manager John Scott said: “Our challenge is to realise the vision of the Lees-Jones family and to reinforce the hotel as the best boutique hotel in Cheshire.

“It’s not just about the décor and services but we are aiming to create a modern and welcoming space for people to escape, relax and enjoy beautiful food and drink.

“It’s a fantastic evolution that has evolved over the 30 years since JW Lees first acquired the hotel.”

William Lees-Jones, managing director of JW Lees, said: “Opening the new bar and restaurant at the Alderley Edge Hotel is our first major investment in our 190th year.

“The Alderley Edge Hotel is our most prized asset and it is our aim to be best in class, with a flagship hotel that we can be very proud of.

“JW Lees is a lot more than a just a brewery and our investment in hotels and inns continued to grow with major developments planned for 2018.”
