I went here with my parents and partner especially to see the Willard Wigan exhibition. I was incredibly impressed. It's a lovely old building (not suitable if you have mobility issues though) and the staff very friendly (top marks for the lunch recommendation).

We especially visited to see Willard Wigan exhibition and the additional war and art exhibits are a bonus all for £5 per person a bargain. There is no lift so climbing stairs is a must but truly worth it.

This Tudor, former stagecoach inn has been well-preserved with many of its original architectural features and fireplaces, as well as some fascinating period pieces. Much of it, however, seems more filler than anything else.
