Shame on you councillors for allowing a beautiful and important piece of cultural patrimony and social history to be torn to the ground. A Lidl will of course be an asset to the area...I think not. - Andrea Fellows

Worked here for years as a teen - Manda Hempstock

The food in restaurant was really good. The rooms were another thing. The decor was stuck in the 80’s, very dated. Would have needed a fortune spending on it to bring up to standard. Loved the nights in the Dixon suite. Never had a bad night in there - Lian Sayers-Sandiford

Sad news. We had our wedding reception there in 1975 - Anne Crossley
