Milton Arms Restaurant
(Formerly Listed as:
(North side)


House, now restaurant. Late C16 or early C17, modified C20.
Squared and coursed Portland stone, some rendering to front,
and rear range in light timber-framing with brick nogging,
asbestos-cement slate roof.
PLAN: 2-room plan, heated to left; rear range to left also
with heating, sharing flue, and shallow gabled range to left.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic, 3 windows; C19 two-light
casements at first floor above 3-light replacement
stone-mullioned casements at ground floor with central doorway
in 4-centred arch with stopped chamfer surround. The upper
half of this frontage retains rendering, but the stonework is
exposed below. 2 rooflights, and a brick stack to the left.
The return, in New Street, has a gabled end with 2-light
inserted casement, and, to the left, a lower gabled range with
framed upper part over rubble ground floor. To the left is an
early bay window in 1:3:1 lights to a hipped roof. The rear
gable is boarded. A second gable at the far end of the
building is in brickwork over a rendered wall.
INTERIOR: has been considerably modified, but it retains a
wide bressumer fire in the left-hand half, with stone cheeks
and deep wood bressumer; behind this, in the rear range, and
at right angles to it a second fireplace, also with stopped
stone cheeks. Various beams with a small chamfer.
The staircase is rear right, in straight flight to the first
floor which has mainly replacement timbers, but a further
fireplace above that at ground floor, with a deep cambered
The rear range, with modern kitchen, has a square panel
timber-framed partition, and a central beam at first floor. A
tight spiral staircase within the main block gives to the
attic with 3-bay roof, without collars, but with mostly
original principals, including 2 purlins.
A rare survival from the period, with characteristically low
ceiling heights. Referred to as Milton House in RCHME.
(RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 350).
