A small 1930s corner pub which retains three rooms though the two at the front are now connected by a wide opening rather than a door. The left hand of these bars is fairly plain with simple multi-shelved bar back, original counter, bench seating and Art Deco fireplace. The next bar has a minimalist bar back and original counter, a dado and two benches - the dog window is a recent replacement for a corner door. The third room, at a right angle, has similar bar back and counter, half-height panelling and bench seating. Modest but charming.

A small 1930s corner pub with Georgian-style upper-floor windows; good leaded ones on the ground floor. Three rooms in an L-shape, the front two being connected by a modern opening and curtain between. The counter and bar-back run round the corner, and are original. The left-hand portion is rather Spartan with simple multi-shelved bar back and original counter with deep top and new pot shelf above. Bench seating on two sides and an Art Deco fireplace with good tiling. The middle bar has a minimalist bar back and original counter, a dado and two benches, with a modern settee between. The dog window was installed by the current licensee and replaced a corner door. The best room is rear-right, with bench seating, half-height panelling and the same style of counter and bar back as the middle. Most doors are original with leaded glass. In the Gents is an intact set of three urinals with ‘F J Co’ logos.
