Anyone heard whats happening to this. It closed around Aug and was for Sale. Passed it today and saw no for Sale signs . The roof looked like it had collapsed a bit here and there and lots of slates removed and stacked near the chimneys . Security fencing right round. Wonder if its the start of reclamation /demolition or whether it having its roof renovated ?

It got terrible reviews towards the end. Check out Trip Advisor. Looks like it was deliberately run down so that the Pub co. can now knock it down and put a 400 unit student block/hovel there instead.

looks like the "salvagers" have already started nicking the slates, stacked up ready to go..but possibly disturbed i the process.

The massive ROFTEN site up the road is starting development work so its a shame the Pub didn't hold out a bit longer, there would have been a lot more local customers.

Last few times I went the service was dreadful and food wasn't brilliant despite it looking like they had spent a decent amount of money on the place.

OH has just said he was passing earlier in the day than me , and the security gates were open , with various official looking vans and yellow flo jacketed blokes milling about , so maybe its a genuine dismantling but he didnt notice what they were doing.

Is this in the vacinity of the massive development scheme in Willaston/Hooton on Green belt land ? It's planned to be somewhere between Willaston and Hooton.

The Hooton Hotel is beside Hooton Station, on the other side of the railway is the now flattened Royal Ordnance Factory which has the go ahead for 265 homes so that is a brownfield site.

Across the road is light industrial with some green land leading to the old tip which Cheshire have said they may allow to be used provided there is no impact on the openness of greenbelt. The idea is to tidy up some of the existing industrial usage.

Around the Hooton Hotel especially to the east is green fields and some residential which again Cheshire have said they may allow to be used provided there is no impact on the openness of the greenbelt.

Immediately south of the Hotel is the quite large station car park.

Are you thinking of the Little Sutton/Ledsham development a bit further south?

Maybe, I am thinking of Ledsham, although it was someone in Neston who mentioned about the Willaston development, or the intentions of it at some point being under the same scheme as discussed on here a few weeks ago, about the use Green Belt .
