An 18th-century hotel, notable for the splendidly cosy bar to the left of the main entrance. The fittings here are mainly late 19th/early 20th-century. Above the boarded dado is imitation boarding, a cheap substitute for the real thing often used at the time. The counter has a simple, match-boarded front while the bar back comprises old shelving on a mirrored backing. Glazed screen on the right and plain brick fireplace to the left. The lounge and panelled dining room are largely devoid of old fittings and the bar rear left is all modern.
