A Victorian terrace pub, cherishable for its largely intact 1960s refit. From the tiny entrance lobby, still with off-sales hatch, a door on the right leads into the narrow, lino-floored public bar. Thousands of pubs in the 1960s had bar fittings similar to those here - counter with formica top (but new front) and bar-back made up from simple shelving, some with Formica tops and some of glass. Early 20th-century seating in the bay window and on the right-hand side - the latter still with its maker's label. The room has recently been knocked through at its far end to create more space. Back to the lobby and the door on the left leads into a small lounge with more 1960s fixed seating. Both the bar counter and two sets of fixed seating are from the 1960s refit.
