Welcome… Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Echo.
New recruit Bob has been waving his
ad sales wand over Earith and surrounding
villages and the pages have been snapped up by existing and new advertisers alike. Now, I like Bob, but there is
traditionally a divide between editorial and advertising in publishing; an us and them
thing you might say. So, as good as it is to see more advertising in the magazine, I
can’t help feel that we editorial folk have become somewhat overshadowed.
So let’s show Bob he can’t have it all his
own way. Let’s rally the troops. Let’s fill the pages with news, articles, reminiscences,
photographs old and new and let’s make
the Echo a magazine to be reckoned with. Bob, the gloves are officially off. Bring

echo 28 ¦ The Old Riverview Hotel
Tales from the riverbank Jayne Parris and Graham Sizer have taken over what must have been a
mammoth task ‒ The Old Riverview Hotel. Linda Sturrock spoke to Jayne
recently and asked her many questions, as she was so interested in what their plans were as I know the people of Earith were also. So let s hear from Jayne: Well, here we are in Earith, and what a fabulous welcome we have had
from all the people we have met in the village! We moved into the Riverview on 6th December after a whirlwind year looking for the right business/property for us. Initially we were just looking for a bed and breakfast, where we could take life a little easier, after years of rushing around in our diﬀerent careers.
Graham had been a farmer all his life, inheriting his father s potato,
rapeseed and wheat farm with his brother in Redmere, Ely. However, like a lot of us in life, there comes a time when you ask yourself, is there anything else out
there for me? With some of the rented land from the farm ﬁnishing its contract, it seemed an ideal time for Graham to hand over the reins of the family farm
fully to his brother and nephew and start something new.
As well as bringing up her twin daughters alone for some time, Jayne had
been writing exam papers for an English as a Foreign Language examination
syndicate, teaching foreigners English and, in later years, trying her hand as a

technical author. She was looking for a lifestyle that would allow her to be home for her children when they returned from school.
Having met in Ely, together, we soon started to discuss our hopes and
the idea for a bed and breakfast was born We travelled East Anglia for the right premises and found one in Norwich, which seemed to tick the boxes we had set out for ourselves. Just two weeks before we were to move the deal fell through and we found ourselves back to the drawing board.
Panic set in. Having sold our home, we started to trawl the Internet for
inspiration and there was the Riverview! With Graham in the middle of harvest, working from six in the morning until well after dark, it was left to my mum and I to make the appointment to view. As soon as we walked in the door,
I knew it was the place for us, not as a pub, but as tea rooms and a bed and
breakfast. We were shown round by the temporary landlord. Each room we
14-15 Riverview.indd 14
The Old Riverview Hotel | echo 28 visited was screaming out to be restored to its former glory, desperate for some TLC.
‘That evening, returning home from a full day on the farm, Graham was
bombarded with the potential of the Riverview! Although he was covered in
mud from head to foot, we jumped in the car and drove over to Earith. John,
the landlord, kindly showed us around the property well into the evening and we both fell in love with the place!
‘Once the financial deal was done we started to map out our plan for
the former inn. With a good pub already in Earith, there was no need to add another. I have always loved cooking; as a teenager I had helped out in the kitchen of a small hotel in the New Forest. I loved working with food from
producing cream teas to preparing meals and buffets for weddings. It was a
great experience and gave me a hankering for my own little project, so, here we are creating the new Old Riverview Country Kitchen and Tea Rooms!
‘The project of rebuilding this beautiful village building has, of course,
been challenging. It has, however, been exciting and pleasing to bring it
back to its full potential. Every piece of piping and wiring has been taken out, uncovering some extremely creative plumbing and electrical work from the
past! We have often stood back and marvelled at how everyone had survived their stay in the bedrooms, with dripping copper joints and bare wires. It is remarkable that no one had experienced a shock they hadn’t banked on!
‘Another concerning discovery was the lack of support for the floor joists.
Where the walls had moved so far forward from the roof, the floor joists had
nothing holding them up at all! We employed a structural engineer who worked out the loads and a steel RSJ was inserted to keep the floors safe, avoiding any guests dropping into the tea rooms below!
‘Graham and I have been hands-on all the way. Graham often says ‘you’re
like a man, Jayne’ which although sometimes doesn’t feel like a compliment, does makes me feel like I am part of the team. We are not there yet, we are
fitting the windows today. That’s really exciting and we hope is the turning
point to start getting the final build work completed. We can then start putting the furniture and finishing touches to the project.
‘Our hope is to offer a place in the community for all age groups that reflects
the era of the building whilst offering a cosy and friendly venue. The food will all be home cooked country fayre. From soups to sausage rolls; from summer and winter stews to the more modern paninis; from chunky sandwiches to
homemade pizza, we hope to offer something suitable for everybody’s palette. For sweet treats there will always be a variety of cakes and scones as well as
creamy homemade ice creams. We would like to tempt young ones into trying new foods, such as homemade chicken nuggets and, for fun, will have an adult afternoon cream tea and a children’s afternoon ice cream tea.
‘There will be two rooms for the tea rooms, the larger side for everyday
visitors and a smaller function room which can be hired for events, or used by
mums any day of the week to get together for a chat, while their children play with the toys in the toy box.
‘We also have five completely refurbished guest rooms. All of them have
modern facilities, including en-suite bathrooms, Wi-Fi, freeview TV, hair dryers and
tea and coffee making facilities. Each room is individually decorated, with our main
room offering a four poster bed. Our first booking has already come in for 17th May, so if you have any family who would like to visit or need a room for longer term
accommodation, we will soon be ready to open the doors for a comfortable stay. ‘Fingers crossed, we hope to open mid May(ish!). We will definitely let
everyone know the exact date and announce our open day as soon as we
can. We really look forward to welcoming everyone and hope we can really offer a place for people to enjoy!’
