About the employer

Nestled in the Chilterns, an area of outstanding natural beauty, and within easy reach of London and Windsor, The Ethorpe Hotel is a charming hotel and pub restaurant at the heart of the quiet Buckinghamshire retreat of Gerrards Cross.Converted from a wealthy gentleman's residence in 1923, The Ethorpe offers attractive exposed beams, open fires in winter and cosy corners for intimate dining. Located just 2 minutes from the main rail station in this lovely 'Brighton of Bucks' village, the stuccoed villa appearance of The Ethorpe reflects the genteel Edwardian character of the surrounding area. Serving traditional pub food, seasonal specials and delicious Sunday roasts, along with fine wines and real ales, it's the perfect place to recharge after exploring some of Buckinghamshire's most beautiful countryside. The Ethorpe Hotel dates back to the early 1800's and was formerly a wealthy Edwardian gentleman's residence until it was converted into a hotel in 1923 when the Ethorpe Estate was sold. Two storeys in height and with an impressive portico front entrance, the hotel's stuccoed villa appearance and white painted walls reflect its early 19th century origins and the genteel affluent character of Gerrards Cross. Sensitively altered and extended in the Arts & Crafts style by architect Robert Muir in the 1920's, The Ethorpe Hotel is typical of the Edwardian development of Gerrards Cross after the rail link to London was established in 1906.
