5/10 The Mytton and Mermaid 29.1.52 Hotel (formerly listed as The Mytton and Mermaid Public House)


House, latterly inn, now hotel. Mid- to late C18 with probably late C19 alterations. Red brick with hipped machine tile roof. 3 storeys and basement. Wooden dentil eaves cornice, dentils omitted over second floor windows; 3 late C19 rusticated brick stacks, on ridge to right, integral end to left and at rear. 7 bays; glazing bar sashes with gauged heads, painted blind windows on first floor in first and sixth bays from left and on ground floor in second bay from right; central door with 6 raised and fielded panels, rectangular overlight with 3 intersecting ovals, and door- case consisting of Doric pilasters supporting entablature with dentil cornice, and triangular pediment; the small statue above the pediment is a later addition. Steps down to segmental-headed basement door at right. West front to right: 6 bays, large 3-storey bow to 3 right-hand bays; painted blind windows on first and second floors in third bay from left; door in third bay from left with 6 raised and fielded panels (top panels glazed), plain architrave and brackets to former hood, now missing. Interior: C18 dog-leg staircase with closed string, turned balusters, moulded handrail, square newel posts, and columnular bottom newel; wall cupboard on first-floor landing with shaped shelves. A pair of probably C18 baluster-shaped stone pedestals with foliage carving stand against the main front, between the second and third and fifth and sixth bays from left. The hotel was known as The Talbot Arms until the early C19 when it became The Berwick Arms. The building became a private home in the mid- to late C19 and was known as Atcham House, but in the early 1930s it was bought from the Attingham Estate by Sir Clough William-Ellis, who turned it back into a hotel and gave it its present name. Famous people who have stayed in the hotel include Augustus John.
