What you see today in this old building (circa 1630) dates mainly from a 1963 refurbishment which combined the original two rooms and off sales into the present lounge.. Most of the fittings in there are from this time, as is the replacement off-sales hatch in the rear extension.

Built c.1630 and extended to the rear in 1963 by Steward & Patteson of Norwich, it has barely altered since then. Prior to the 1960s the pub consisted of two small rooms with an off-sales in the middle in what is now the main lounge bar at the front. This has a lapped wood counter, a bar back of shelves attached to a panelled wall, a large plain brick fireplace on the left, a smaller one on the right, fixed seating and the half timbering effect on the walls all from 1963. Note the old windows on the rear left which were in the original exterior wall. In the extension to the rear there is the intact 1963 replacement off sales hatch, toilet block on the left and the public bar at the rear. This has a solid wood counter, shelving on wood panelled walls of a style seen in the 1930s.
