The Old House Ho­tel in Wick­ham Square is in the process of an ex­cit­ing change of hands, with MasterChef semi-fi­nal­ist Greg Em­mer­son, set to re-open to the pub­lic as Ta­ble 22.

Af­ter a for­tu­itous meet­ing with owner of GA Gourmet Ltd Andy Good­son, both are fol­low­ing their dream to open a restau­rant in the vil­lage fol­low­ing a £250,000 re­fur­bish­ment; in­clud­ing a brand new kitchen and din­ing area.

The restau­rant will of­fer break­fast, lunch, af­ter­noon tea and din­ner to both res­i­dents and non-res­i­dents, while the 12bed­room ho­tel will be op­er­ated un­der its for­mer name of The Old House Ho­tel.

Andy Good­son said, “I ran a suc­cess­ful prop­erty busi­ness for 23 years and was look­ing for a new ven­ture, so when the op­por­tu­nity arose to take over Old House Ho­tel in Wick­ham Square I wanted to grab it with both hands. I’ll be part­ner­ing with my daugh­ter Gemma Good­son, a Wick­ham lo­cal, and culi­nary ex­pert Greg Em­mer­son to run the busi­ness. Our goal is to make it the most pop­u­lar ho­tel in the area cou­pled with a su­perb fine din­ing restau­rant.”
