Mechanic recommendations for Nottingham

Drove to Nottingham and something bad has happened. Shortly before arriving I started getting loud rattling and a nasty burning smell. When the clutch pedal is down the sounds reduces so I am suspecting the clutch. As I parked up I noticed some kind of smoke come through the bonnet. Looked white but not much of it.

Anyhoo, I don't plan on driving it back south in this condition and I'm hoping someone can recommend a decent garage that I can get the car recovered to and leave it with them to sort out.

Thanks for the replies. Managed to get it recovered to MG Auto. Once I had a look in the daylight it looked like the ac compressor pulley seized and the belt was burning. After it cooled overnight the belt snapped. Guys at MG Auto confirmed the ac compressor failed.
