A 16th-century building, entered down a long, flagged, panelled corridor. A small room on the left has inter-war panelling and fireplace plus a hatch to the bar. To the right is a delightful suite of three small rooms. First is a snug with recent panelling and a curious copper-topped counter. The gem of a second room is entered through a narrow door and has ancient panelling, old leaded windows, a splendid black-brick open fire and a patterned tiled floor. The third room has been opened out on both sides though the skeleton of one wall survives. It has a very large and fine fireplace. The area further back is a former yard now covered with a glass roof. A former outbuilding, containing the remains of an old brewery, has been incorporated into the pub.
