What might happen to fine dining restaurant the French Horn at Sonning after it was put up for sale? And who might be interested?

Steve Woodford, executive chairman of Haslams Estate Agents in Reading, joins us in the latest Battle & Bunce podcast to look at both the marketing of the remarkable site on the Berkshire border with Oxfordshire, and to discuss the housing market in general.

Through decades of family connections, Steve’s involvement with the French Horn has led to Haslams being given the task of marketing the riverside restaurant, hotel and associated land and houses, alongside Christies.

He reveals a list of some of the biggest names in show business and royalty to have used the restaurant over the years and talks about the options for what could happen to it – anything from a fitness spa to a wedding venue are included although Steve admits he hopes the fine dining will continue.

On the wider housing market, he talks about a new feeling of optimism for 2024 and weighs up the problems first time buyers face with getting on the housing ladder.
