Built 1906 this is a two-storey brick pub with terracotta dressings and has some glazed brick on the ground floor. The L-shaped public bar was originally two rooms - note the original etched 'Private Bar' panel in the disused door on the left. The curved bar counter is claimed to be the original with large curved brackets. The five-bay mirrored bar back has original lower shelving but the top section looks a good quality replacement – compare the style of the pilasters on the lower shelving to those at the top of the upper part – the upper ones are much sharper by comparison. The mirrors are all modern. The fixed seating could be old but re-upholstered, the brick fireplace is modern as is the vestibule with colourful leaded glass at the top. The lounge at the rear retains original fixed seating in two sections but the brick fireplace and bar fittings are modern.
