Welcome to The Brocket Arms. This delightful country inn was built in the 14th century and retains all the traditional features one would hope to find therein.
The Brocket Arms was originally the monastic quarters for the Norman Church until the Reformation. In the village the attractive Georgian Ayot House was once famous as Britain’s only silk farm. The ruined Norman Church was replaced in 1778 by the existing Palladian Church. Ayot St. Lawrence is well known as the home of George Bernard Shaw, who lived there for 40 years until his death in 1950.
The bars and restaurant with their low ceilings, oak beams and inglenook fireplaces are full of character, where guests can enjoy delicious, seasonal, good quality food, together with a wide range of real ales and wines.
Traditional, charming, high quality accommodation is available with 5 double en-suite rooms and one twin room with its own bathroom. The accommodation is finished to a very high quality. Each room has a wealth of exposed beams reflecting the age of the property and all include Freeview TVs, DVD players, WiFi access, MP3 connection, tea and coffee making facilities, fresh towels and linen and hair dryers. Breakfast is included in the room price.
