A Scunthorpe pub has joined the select band of UK hostelries to be afforded coveted listed building status.
This means they have architectural merit and are worth preserving, with any changes requiring special permission from local council planners.
The Berkeley Hotel, Scunthorpe, is a very recent addition to the list of listed properties.
Historic England says the building, in Doncaster Road, is a large roadhouse, opened in 1940, designed by Scott Clark of Wednesbury.
The exterior has Neo-Georgian, Moderne, Art Deco and Oriental influences.
The interior incorporates classical and Art Deco influences.
Historic England says the Berkeley “survives largely unaltered, both externally and internally, retaining its original plan and once typical, but now rare, roadhouse features, including garden servery, ballroom, kitchen and dining facilities, lounge and public bar, and the original hotel bedrooms.”
The Berkeley is included in CAMRA’s National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors, where it is identified as possessing an interior of national importance.
