A large bar close to the station. Accommodation is available and the spacious dining area is also used for functions.

The building seems to have spent a year or so (from 2016) as "Monza's Place", though when visited in August 2018 it seemed to have gone back to the Great Eastern name. Part of the building is now occupied by an oriental "all you can eat" place.
