The River Wyre Hotel, on the corner of Breck Road and Amounderness Way, has retained the country pub look which has been so popular with customers.

But the extensive work has seen new decor, relocation of the bar seating area, a newly created rear garden and completely revamped toilets.

The changes don’t end there, though, with a new menu being added and the introduction of earlier brunch sessions between 9am and noon – including a range of breakfasts for the first time.
