On 8th April 1786 John Adams and Thomas Jefferson - the second and third Presidents of the United States of America - dined in the old Hop Pole Inn, which is the building to the left of this hotel, during their 8-day tour of English gardens and Civil War battle sites. Later, on Fort Royal Hill, Adams demanded of local people: "do Englishmen so soon forget the ground where liberty was fought for? All England should come in pilgrimage to this hill once a year."
