In the passage, a hatch has a sliding window. The inner half-doors have etched panels.

A pub with various rooms leading off a central corridor, the main ones on the right, and a separate games room opposite. The public bar front-right retains its original counter and good original bar-back, old fixed seating and 'Vaults' on the door, but has a new tiled floor. Rear-right is the smoke room with original fixed seating, a baffle, a new inset in the old fireplace and 'Smoke Room' etched on the door window. The games room on the left has some old fixed seating. The passage has a hatch with a sliding window and a number '5' over it. Inner half doors have old etched panels. The Gents' which replaced the outside one are situated in a former kitchen - hence the large size of the room.
