CHESTERS are extremely pleased to be instructed to find tenants for three beautiful cottages which are now the former Hungry Monk Restaurant which closed its doors in January 2012.
After careful restoration there is now a one bedroom cottage, a three bedroom cottage and a four bedroom cottage all presented to a very high standard.
Mr & Mrs Mackenzie purchased the Hungry Monk in 1968 whilst it was being used as a tearoom, they spent five months renovating and refitting the 16th century building, which didn’t even have a mains water supply.
The restaurant went from strength to strength and it became the birthplace of The Banoffi Pie in 1971. The popular restaurant received a host of awards and was listed in the current Michelin guide. Last year the restaurant was visited by Queen Sofia of Spain and the success of its menu led to a series of Hungry Monk cookbooks being published.
Mr Mackenzie said: “Things have just changed so much over the years and it is so difficult to run restaurants out in the country now.”
“We used to have people driving down from London to eat in the Hungry Monk but now people won’t take a drive in to the country because they can’t afford the petrol.”
Mr Mackenzie appreciates the need for desirable properties for the rental market and after many months spent converting the beautiful building has now instructed Chesters to find tenants who will appreciate this beautiful 16th century building.
The cottages have been converted to an extremely high standard whilst retaining their original character and charm. They can be found nestled in the stunning village of Jevington.
