With two new welcome lunches now under our belt, it’s safe to say the welcome lunch has been a success.

About The Manor
Built for Osney Abbey’s bailiff, Weston Manor House is a late 15th/early 16th Century building.It was originally built within a 13th Century moat, but only two sides of this survived until they were filled in 1908.
In the 16th Century, the house was re-fronted, with the beautiful entrance hall and Tudor fireplace within also of this period. The house was assessed at 20 hearths in 1665 with the introduction of Charles II’s hearth tax.
The drawing room panelling dates from just before the turn of the 17th Century, from the reign of William and Mary. Around 1780 the 16th century Great Hall was revamped with a timber rooftop outline and linenfold paneling that had been transferred from Notley Abbey in Buckinghamshire.
The 16th-century front was replaced in about 1820 and the Hon. Rev. F.A. Bertie then went ahead with further alterations and renovations in 1851. Weston Manor is now a hotel.
