An early 19th-century coaching inn (although claimed to date from 1580) with an extension in c.1936. Most of the Art Deco fittings of that era, including the finest surviving ladies’ and gents’ loos, has been retained. Walk through the terrazzo-floored lobby and past the period hotel reception to find Willie Wastle's Bar at the rear. This is just as it was, with a lapped wood door and bar counter, gantry of shelves, stone fireplace with a circular hearth and copper hood. Even the chunky furniture - chairs, tables including a barrel one, and corner seat - is original.
