A pub since 1865, this excellent establishment last saw significant alterations in the mid-1950s. From the front door, a ply-panelled passage with old settle leads to the public bar. This has a classic 1950s bar counter and the two sections of bar back with Formica shelves were added at the same time. The fine tap room (see p. XX), front left, has a quarry-tiled floor, old (but re-upholstered) fixed seating and a 1950s tiled fireplace. Another delightful room, the tiny snug, is on the right - it has an appropriately sized hatch to the servery and leatherette-covered fixed seating. The lounge at the back was doubled in size in 1999 but the original front section has what looks like an inglenook fireplace. To the rear left, the Assembly Room was added in 1911. The same family has run the pub since 1953.
