The second oldest hotel in Scunthorpe has reopened following a £450k refurbishment following its takeover by new owners Greene King.
The Royal, which was built in 1933 by the former Barnsley Brewery, has relaunched today, remaining under the brand name Good Night Inns, but now adopting a new name Golden Oak Inns for its pub operation.
The 28-bedroom hotel’s new look boasts an expanded restaurant and a ‘more homely feel’, with diners and drinkers now promised an upgraded menu and a new premium range of drinks.
Further plans to upgrade the property’s function rooms will also begin next year.
The first phase of the revamp started on November 21 to coincide with the building of a £7.5m residential care village across the road.
A Greene-King spokesman said: “The first phase of an extensive make-over will see a number of exciting changes to the pub with a contemporary design over several levels.
