The Suffolk Hotel
Formerly known as: The Greyhound Inn BUTTERMARKET.
Hotel, formerly The Greyhound Inn, renamed The Suffolk in the
C19. Rebuilt on an older site in the early C17; front of c1830
with the ground storey remodelled c1873, when a wide carriage
entrance through the building was infilled and the ground
storey windows replaced. Basically timber-framed; rendered
front; slate roof with a paired modillion eaves soffit and a
richly decorated plaster frieze below it.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellars. 8 window range: sashes in
flush cased frames, those on the 1st storey without
glazing-bars; 9-pane to the 2nd storey. A moulded stucco band
with acanthus-leaf decoration runs below the 2nd-storey
windows. Below the 1st-storey windows a continuous row of
cast-iron guard rails. 10 windows and 2 doors to the ground
storey, arranged 4:1:3:1:3. The windows are set into a
semicircular-headed arcade with enriched keystones. Between
the windows are polished pink granite columns, added in 1873,
with ornate 'Romanesquoid' capitals. 6 Corinthian pilasters
spaced across the front have the capitals, variously
ornamented with acanthus leaves, vine leaves and grapes,
picked out in bright colours.
INTERIOR: the extensive cellars have no readily identifiable
medieval features. Considerable modernising to interior.
