Travellers' Choice
We're a thoroughly new kind of hotel; so much so that we actually call ourselves a house, as we aim to be a Melting Pot for getting people together and because our way of doing things is perhaps just a little more personable and informal than some. And a touch off-beat: unusual cuisines; unexpected events; untypical meetings; unorthodox interiors; unconventional bedrooms; uncommon people. We have 83 bedrooms. 7 event and meeting spaces (some indoors and some out). 4 restaurants and bars. An outdoor pool. A back garden. A gym. And lots of surprises to keep things buzzing.

Had a fantastic and easy time. The employees are extremely friendly. Shout out to Tobias, Merioth and the security guards. They created an environment that made me feel at home. Which I believe is what Social House was going for.

Although very familiar with The Social House we return time after time, because we can always guarantee the meat platter will be perfect, the wine is excellent and we appreciate the wonderful service we get here. Would thoroughly recommend.

Had lunch at the Copper Restaurant, Social House. We enjoyed a tasty meal of tomahawk Angus served with mashed potatoes and veggies washed down with Rupert and Rothschild wine recommended by their in-house sommelier and our pleasant host, Janet K . 10/10 would recommend and will be back!
