After much anticipation, Crest Nicholson is delighted to confirm that stylish eatery Coppa Club is the latest addition to Brightwells Yard.

Coppa Club will take pride of place in the newly renovated iconic Brightwell House, right at the heart of the development. Part of the Various Eateries group, the first Coppa Club opened on the Thames at Streatley in Berkshire in 2015, and they have gone on to become firmly established in eleven locations across the UK from the City of London to Surrey and across to Bristol. 

Coppa Club’s growing portfolio includes venues in nearby Haslemere and Cobham, where it has a great reputation for its all-day menu and wide selection of drinks served in beautiful venues. The exclusive chain creates a members club style experience for everybody to enjoy and each of its venues has its own distinctive character, drawing on the building’s unique architecture and heritage. 

Yishay Malkov, Chief Executive Officer of Various Eateries, said: 

“Brightwell House affords a fantastic opportunity to create a unique all-day venue in Farnham very much with locals in mind. The spectacular garden setting in particular will provide a wonderful outside dining experience”

The striking Grade II listed Brightwell House has a rich history. It was built in the 1790s as a domestic residence, and has previously hosted Sir Arthur Sullivan and Florence Nightingale. The building was originally named Lowlands, but was later renamed Brightwell in 1905, before it went on to become a library, a health clinic, and council offices. In more recent years, an extension of Brightwell House became the Redgrave Theatre in 1974 before sadly closing in 1998. 

Adrian Sims, Managing Director at Crest Nicholson said:

“Coppa Club’s expansion into Farnham is an exciting addition to the town’s already impressive leisure offering.  We have worked closely with conservation officers to carefully renovate Grade II listed Brightwell House and are pleased that it will be brought back to its former glory at the heart of the town for the whole community to enjoy.”
