Planning History

The building was originally designed as a bank (1906 by George Vickery) arranged over 6 foors with a basement, in a Beaux Art style but with Art Nouveau detailing. Three phases of building works were evident prior to the current use. The original 1906 main frontage building was extended in 1925 along Cloth Fair. Alterations carried out in the 1990s when the bank use ceased created a form of intermediate housing on upper floors, together with the introduction of the current wine bar and restaurant uses at ground level. Planning permission and listed building consent for the current scheme, comprising reconfiguration of the upper floors and part of the basement, was secured in April 2014.
