A 1970s wedding in the Stuart Room before it had its pillars removed.

The Stuart Room in 2013. Clean, crisp and ready for any wedding colour scheme you can think of.

The former bar, which is now the Mullioned Restaurant.

The former bar today - used for weddings, restaurant diners and afternoon tea.
A bedroom in the 1970s. Groovy patterns!
The orignal reception area, now the corridor to the bedrooms adjacent to the Abraham Brigg Room.
