About The Ormond
The Ormond has always been a traditional coaching inn and the original building dates back to the mid 17th Century. It has been added to over the centuries and the latest alterations were carried out around 1900 when the new Victorian facade was added to the structure. During the 1st World War it was used an army telegraphic and postal station for communications to soldiers fighting in France and in the 2nd World War American soldiers occupied the hotel to convalesce from injuries sustained in battle. We have it on good authority that American Generals also met at the hotel for part of planning for the Omaha Invasion in June 1944!
Since these times the Ormond has gone through much change, it was even closed down for a period in the mid 1990′s. Since 2005 we have done much to bring back the atmospheric character of the buiding. Whether you are just dropping by for a relaxing drink at the end of a hard week this winter or staying with us to explore the area, we will go out or our way to make you feel welcome. The mulled wine is back on the bar in December and as always the fire will be on and candles burning to warm up these cold winter evenings. Board games, magazines and our new sofa area has recently been added to make you stay as comfortable as possible.
