Roberts & Treguer acquired The Culpeper, then named The Princess Alice, during the summer 2012. Over the course of 18 months we ran it as a very modest east end boozer whilst working on the masterplan for the site.
We refurbished the ground floor pub and the kitchen on the first floor from March to June 2014, after which we officially opened the doors to the public. The restaurant on the first floor followed in 2015, along with the rooftop greenhouse. The latest additions were the bedrooms, which followed in Spring 2016.
The building, which is named after East-End local Nicholas Culpeper, who was an astronomer, botanist, pharmacist and herbalist, is now a fixture in the area and hosts workshops and events in honor our its namesake. Each floor has it’s own specific offering and aims to cater for all kinds of people in the surrounding area, with the rooftop hosting the lowest price menu.
