124 room hotel which is part of the Britannia Hotels Group. There are several meeting rooms available for hire. The bar is upstairs, adjacent to the restaurant, and it is a comfortable place to while away time. Food is served all day with last orders 9:45 in the restaurant with bar snacks also available. The real ale is very well kept. A sparkler is used on it (most guests staying the night are from the north of England), although this will be removed if requested.
