A beautifully preserved example of inter-war pub-fitting. The original building is Victorian but it was given a thorough remodelling in the 1930s and this work is cherished by the current owners who offer a good balance between drinking and dining. The window glass tells us that the front left-hand room was the public bar, while the right-hand one was the saloon lounge. The glass is a lovely survivor with clear, textured panes enlivened by others with mottled green glass. There is a third room behind the public bar: both these left-hand rooms have wall panelling and attractive, original tiled fireplaces. In recent times an opening has been made between the public and saloon/lounge so that the rooms are connected internally.
