The Cathedral Hotel History

The Cathedral Hotel was originally a coaching inn – there is an arched window in the bar area which used to be the entrance to the hotel.

As a hotel, the building has a long and successful trading history stretching back to the early 1970s. In 2003 the hotel, then known as The Little Barrow, was sold by owners Mick Denny and Jan Uzupris, to Mr & Mrs Steve Pike who ran it until 2007.  In this year the hotel was bought by Billy Shanahan who changed its name to The Cathedral Lodge.
In November 2016 The hotel was bought by the Webb family who have owned Moor Hall Hotel & Spa in Sutton Coldfield for over 50 years. The Webb Hotel Group also includes The George Hotel in Lichfield, The Red Lion in Newborough and The Gables Hotel near Bristol. At the heart of this privately owned group of companies is the philosophy of personal service and attention to detail which means always putting the customer first.
