I'd like to see the "before" photo of the same room.


Comment by Ken R on 25th January 2017 at 00:58
Nice photo Dave. Looks like it would cost you a few bob to dine in there.


Comment by Ellen on 25th January 2017 at 01:10
Looks nice. I wonder if the menu lives up to the surroundings? Some Wiganworlder should eat there and let the rest of us know!


Comment by Ellen on 25th January 2017 at 01:13
Afterthought;--I'm not too keen on the idea of dining at a glass table!


Comment by Garry on 25th January 2017 at 04:01
WOW a coal fire great, or could it be electric? Looks nice and cosy.


Comment by Alan lad on 25th January 2017 at 05:17
Very nice indeed and the photo is good in the bargain.


Comment by peterammy on 25th January 2017 at 08:37
when the hotel opens 1 nights b&b costs £200, think i'll give it a miss!


Comment by Mick on 25th January 2017 at 08:43
All the new furniture in the hall looks like its come from The Range shop, its a bit OTT for me.
But Im sure all them Wigan brides will love it.


Comment by Vb on 25th January 2017 at 08:58
The decor shows a good use of colour and the original moulding around the ceiling is beautiful. Not keen on the chairs or tables -it's as if the cushions are there to brighten the chairs up. The overall effect is attractive and would be popular for weddings. (just my opinion.)


Comment by DTease on 25th January 2017 at 09:09
A cool, calm, relaxing atmosphere. It would be a pleasure to have a meal here. Do you think they will be making any BOGOF offers for me and the missus ?


Comment by Vb on 25th January 2017 at 11:07
Afterthought the chairs remind me of Budgie cages but I am sure they will appeal to the lovers of contemporary furniture. Each to their own is what I say !

You could take the grandkids along with you DTease. And to stop them from making a nuisance of themselves by sliding all over the room, you could keep them in those Vietnamese style chicken baskets and sit on them. They'd be perfectly safe as you could watch them through the glass table and push pieces of food through the bars for them occasionally to keep them quiet.


Comment by Juluie on 25th January 2017 at 13:23
Its not for me its all for the upper class people to go, what about the poor working class people who cant afford to pay for their food each week and have to go to food banks, I am living in the real world and telling how it is.


Comment by . Ozymandias . on 25th January 2017 at 14:31
These poor working class people that you speak of Julie, the ones that have to rely on food banks in order to keep body and soul together, would these be the same people that currently receive more per month in various benefits, than this working class person ever earned, or currently receives, having worked long hours in poorly paid jobs for half a century. Are they the same people that send out for a Domino's pizza for 14 quid, instead of buying pasta from Tesco's for 40 pence a kilo. Are these the same ones that swan around town in designer label jeans with the knees ripped out of them at £100 a time, with their £600 iPhone 6s glued to their earholes ? , They couldn't possibly be the same ones that stand on the pavement outside The Clarence at 10 am, smoking and drinking by any chance could they ? , or am I confusing them with someone else ? Just curious.

Regards. Ozy.


Comment by DTease on 25th January 2017 at 15:11
You make a strong argument Ozy and I would like to add that I am a pensioner trying to live on less than £200 a week and no, I don't get my rent paid and I don't get my poll tax paid. In fact I don't get anything from the Government. I couldn't eat here even with a BOGOF deal.Some of the people living of the backs of others should have the sense to be grateful instead of rubbing peoples noses in it.


Comment by Mick on 25th January 2017 at 16:01
Well said Ozy


Comment by Anne on 25th January 2017 at 17:05
I went to a a Warners country hotel last year which this seems to emulate. If so, wouldn't recommend.


Comment by Jimmy. on 25th January 2017 at 17:07
Well said Ozy, every chance those that are scrounges were brought up by scrounges and there kids will be the same.


Comment by Pat McC on 25th January 2017 at 17:49
The coving and frieze on the ceiling are absolutely beautiful. Shame about the other fixtures and fittings.


Comment by Mavis on 25th January 2017 at 21:43
went there last Saturday afternoon for the HIgh Tea we were the only ones in the room it was freezing, the glass tables are not child friendly, we were very disappointed with the service of the sandwiches just on large dinner plates, very basic fillings, had to use the same plate for the cake selection and scones, they need to get their act together try visiting The Paddock at Derby House to show them how a tea should be served, for £20 per head when the offer goes of in March will be a rip off, I have to say the staff who served us were very good, the food was a disaster doesn't live up to the surroundings.


Comment by Jimmy. on 25th January 2017 at 23:22
Pat MaC, Did you go to Spring View School early 60's .


Comment by PatMcC on 26th January 2017 at 07:01
no jimmy, sorry - I was an immigrant - married a Wigan lad in the late sixties - born and raised in West Wales. An adopted Wiganer!!


Comment by Mary R on 26th January 2017 at 09:41
You are spot on Ozy. I don't see anyone opening lager and cigarette banks, do you??? If they learned the basics of how to cook nutritious meals which are not expensive and spent benefits on what they are supposed to be used for they might not be moaning.As for 'telling it like it is' I think they need to get in the real world.


Comment by Sam h on 26th January 2017 at 10:00
Just like the poor ,jealousy will always be with us.
