Originally occupied by Parr's Bank the 1902 building is a superb example of Edwardian baroque with art nouveau detailing. It is among the most opulent of the surviving banking halls. An impressive vestibule entrance leads to a large room hosting an imposing island bar and stylish seating areas with interesting nooks and crannies. These are complemented by massive marble pillars, an ornate plasterwork ceiling and frieze, rooms partitioned by a full height screen and mahogany panelled walls and a fireplace. Operated by M&B with meals but no real ale. Grade II*-listed.
