Most of the building was demolished in the 19th century, what survives is a Grade II listed stone wing that was added c. 1620.[3] It is currently occupied by Starbucks having previously been used as a public house. Planning permission was granted in November 2018 to turn the building into a Starbucks drive-thru and coffeehouse. It is reputed to be haunted with the sounds of children and babies crying and a number of doors opening on their own.
