Elegantly designed with a traditional feel in keeping with the historic character of the building, the rooms also offer modern conveniences such as contemporary bathrooms and free Wi-Fi throughout.

The bars serve a range of drinks and traditional ales - the perfect place to relax in comfort and catch up on the day's activities with friends.
