Brampton is a 16th Century Manor House, nestled up a stunning driveway on Old Road in the heart of Brampton.
Over the years the Manor House will have been through some significant changes and it’s changing again, although this time it’s more of a realignment that will see it continue to be a central part of our local Brampton community.
You may have been passing and seen the ‘For Sale’ sign and wondered what was going on at The Manor? Well here is our opportunity to let you know exactly what has been happening:
“When the decision was made to put the business up for sale, and after several interested parties came forward, a resolution was reached that due to the wealth of knowledge and confidence, following recent successes, The Manor will come under the management of the existing management team.
“It’s a case of the team coming together” Leann Bradbury, General Manager explains, “We’ve been in the business for many years and wanted to carry on. We love the place and have some great plans for the future. We hope you will all get behind the new management team and support them.”
Leann previously worked at Brampton Manor and more recently in national organisations – her return brings significant experience to move the business forward. Leann will be the forefront of the team at Brampton Manor and will be strongly supported by the rest of the management team. The front of house team remains the same and are as welcoming as ever, in their smart new uniforms. Bret Davies continues as head chef and is clearly looking forward to putting together a new Spring/Summer menu.
The menu will include a Breakfast selection, lighter options, Classics and more. “We will have our Sharers & Steak deals plus looking at introducing a new dessert and drinks selection. Our sharer boards are always popular, we have a great selection of burgers, our steaks are locally sourced in Derbyshire and the signature Brampton Burrito will remain on the menu; a Yorkshire Pudding wrapped around slow roast beef brisket, it’s one of our customers’ favourites,” explains Bret proudly.
If you fancy giving the food a try, check out the adverts in the S40 Local magazine; there’s a selection of offers to tempt you to sample their fabulous choices.
“We are wanting to be an integral part of the local community,” says Leann. “We’ll be working hard to make sure we are giving back, and will make sure we continue with our ‘999 Night’ where all emergency services, military and NHS staff can enjoy 10% off their food and drink bill, you will just need to present your work ID.”
One thing you may have noticed is the name, no longer ‘The Manor at Brampton’ they’re making a simple change back to ‘Brampton Manor’.
“Brampton Manor is the only 16th century Manor House that is open to the public. We are a traditional pub offering family dining and it is a great venue for events both large and small. We’re open to all – there is no need for membership, that ceased many years ago, we are a venue for everybody” Leann says.
Brampton Manor is happy to offer free room hire (when catering) for special occasions, birthdays, anniversaries etc. They also have a fantastic new package for Wedding Receptions. Leann and her team will work with you to make sure the venue and all details are put together to suit the occasion you have in mind no matter how small and intimate or large and loud.
The team have some exciting plans in store for the coming months, with some redecoration, refurbishment of the ladies toilets, a new look to the Copper bar with the installation of a couple of screens for sports, the main bar pretty much as it is today with its open fires and comfy booths, and the Watkinson Room will be updated to a lounge area, ideal for families to relax.
Talking of families and children, they remain an important focus at Brampton Manor, as a mum, Leann understands the importance of having somewhere you can socialise with your friends and where the children can play safely. Parent and toddler mornings run Monday to Saturday with great coffee, cake and dining offers. On a Thursday Kids eat free all day, (one child per adult).
With spring here and summer just a few short months away the outdoor area is being refreshed and will continue be a great place to sit and unwind whilst the kids play.
Brampton Manor is well known for the popular events they host across the year, The Hog Roast which will take place on the 21st July 2018 (so make sure you all save the date) Bonfire night, Christmas events and the New Year’s Eve Celebrations and more regular events like the new look Thursday Quiz Night and Friday Night Live where they line up local bands. In addition, this year, the team have some new events scheduled, Bank Holidays will see the Diva on The Deck – be sure to stay up to date with events on Brampton Manor’s social media feeds and here in S40 Local.
“We’re not making major changes” adds Leann, “the award-winning salon and spa, will remain on the first floor and we’re just tweaking what we have to remain at the top of our game. We’re sure people will like what we have in store, it’s a great place to relax for a meal and a drink after work or a lunch date with your friends, colleagues and family, we like to think we’re bringing back the Brampton Manor of old.”
