Angel and Royal Hotel, High Street, Grantham - South Kesteven

One of the few remaining English medieval inns, dating from late C14 with substantial C18 additions at the rear. Currently in use as a hotel. Much of the ornately decorated stone frontage has suffered severe erosion, and many of the corniced figures are now unrecognisable or missing. Historic England has encouraged the owners to investigate the condition of the stone frontage further. The building is otherwise in good condition.
