The origins of the hotel date back to the eighteenth century when John Leigh of The Inn of the Sign of the Talbot, on the border of England and Wales, was granted a licence to sell ale in 1768. It was both a hotel and a working farm and was renamed The Grosvenor Arms in 1874, which coincided with the Marquis of Westminster becoming Duke. The Talbot hunting dogs are included in The Grosvenor Coat of Arms which were incorporated into a crest over the entrance to the hotel when it was refurbished in 1897. The present appearance of the old building dates back to this time. Between 1897 and 1994 there were many different owners including the Duke of Westminster (the Grosvenor Estate owned the property between 1814 -1919). The Nelson Family took over The Grosvenor Arms in June of 1994 and over the years have put in much time, effort and investment to transform it into the thriving 4 star hotel that it is today. Under the ownership of the Nelson family the hotel, renamed The Grosvenor Pulford Hotel, saw a major development in 2000 to include the addition of a further 26 bedrooms and full leisure facilities. In May 2003 came the stunning Mediterranean themed restaurant, Ciro’s Brasserie and following a large development the luxury Spa by Kasia launched in September 2007 when the hotel was appropriately renamed Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa.
