Stay in the Sandon

Overlooking the pub courtyard, The Sandon is a cosy room with double bed, goose down duvets, and ensuite separate toilet and shower rooms.

Henry George Sandon, MBE (10 August 1928 – 25 December 2023) was a notable authority on Royal Worcester porcelain and curator of the Dyson Perrins Museum for many years. He began his career as an archaeologist and his knowledge covers pottery and porcelain of all periods and countries. One of his projects was an excavation at the Royal Worcester factory site.

He is widely known in the UK for his many appearances on the long running BBC television programme Antiques Roadshow. He wrote many books on the subject of Worcester and other porcelains, and frequently lectured on the subject. In 2000, he was voted Antiques Personality of the Year by the readers of BBC’s Homes & Antiques magazine. He was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2008 Queen’s Birthday Honours for his services to Broadcasting, the Ceramics Industry, and to Charity.

He was guest of honour at our re-opening of the The Cardinal’s Hat in 2013 and is much missed!
