Crimble Hall closes

Date published: 18 April 2019

Popular restaurant complex Crimble Hall is understood to have closed as of Sunday 14 April.

It is not clear at this stage whether the venue is temporarily closed for refurbishment Crimble Hall have not responded to our requests for information.

A wake due to be held at the venue this week had to be moved to an alternate venue and at least one couple whose wedding has been booked there have been informed that it is closed, Rochdale Online understands.

A couple due to hold a joint 80th birthday party at Crimble Hall this weekend have also been told that their booking has been cancelled because the venue 'is shut'.

Crimble Hall and its two restaurants, The Conservatory and The Peacock Room, were bought from previous owners Deckers Hospitality Group Ltd by Crimble Properties Ltd as a going concern in March 2018.

Crimble Hall is situated in the countryside midway between Rochdale and Heywood and was advertised at a guide price of £1.95 million. The restaurant sits on a 2.6-acre (1.05-hectare) site and can seat up to 360 diners across its three distinct areas: The Conservatory Restaurant & Grill; The Peacock Room and Fenton’s Lounge.

The Peacock Room has two AA rosettes making it the top-rated fine dining establishment in the area. The restaurant was originally awarded one AA rosette in 2008 and was upgraded to two AA rosettes in 2011, which have been retained every year since then. The Peacock Room also has a Michelin Knife and Fork award.

The art deco-style restaurant has glamorous interiors and boasts two enormous cruise ship crystal chandeliers in the dining area.

Crimble Hall was once the home of photographer and businessman Joseph Fenton. It was originally a cottage built in the 17th century but was re-built as a much grander abode by Joseph Fenton in 1814.

Crimble Hall has been contacted for comment.
