Behind the excellent brown faience frontage of this Edwardian pub lies, firstly, a good plain bar with vestibule entrance and original counter and carved bar-back. To the left, a passage has a timber and etched glass partition to the bar. The bar fittings in the rear lounge are modern but the cornices and the bench seating with bell pushes above are original. Further back is a small area with more old bench seating and a tiled fireplace.

An Edwardian pub with an excellent brown faience frontage. Beautiful etched windows front and rear, two of the front ones being inscribed 'H LD' (Holder's Birmingham Brewery). Good plain bar at the front with vestibule entrance, original counter and carved bar-back with old M&B clock and fixed bench seating. To the left, a passage with an old timber and etched glass partition to the bar. At the rear, a lounge with good cornices, and original bench seating with bell pushes above. However, the bar fittings are modern. At the rear is a small area with more old bench seating and a tiled-up fireplace. The arch with old wooden surround indicates it has been like this for some time.
