Terrace pub with a single bar little altered in years. Originally a hall house of early 15th century with later alterations, but retains some of the original wattle and daub walls. From the layout, with red and white tiling in the entrance way, this would appear to have been a two bar pub at one stage. Low ceilings supported with modern wood pillars. L/H main room has fielded panelled bar front, more recent bar top, wood bar back with mirrors behind turned wooden pillar supported shelves, and half height panelling throughout, all possibly from 1930s. Some fixed bench seating upgraded with leather backs. Substantial brick fireplace of c1930s features a semi circular pattern.

Photo on wall from 1913 proclaims 'Dymores Malt Ales' and shows pub had sash windows, but no more. An attractive circular stained glass effigy of (reputably) Queen Charlotte (wife of George III) from c1930s in one of the window panes, though the main exterior pub sign is of Queen Elizabeth I. R/H bar space essentially features same panelling, some bench seating and similar fireplace. Wooden floors throughout. Modern toilets to rear.

The pub has an Aunt Sally team, a local pub game involving throwing sticks at a skittle mounted on a stand.
