A historic pub interior of some regional importance
Listed Status: Not listed141 Argent Street
The four room layout of this former coaching inn, along with some old fittings, makes it worth a visit despite recent alterations. Old dado panelling survives in three of the rooms with old bar counters in two of them.
Former coaching inn with the coach arch now filled by a small pool room and toilets. The shop on the left of the arch has laid empty for some years and the licensee would like to return it to use but the council have so far not agreed to this. The door between the pool room and the left hand bar was slightly widened in 1996 and dado panels added to the pool room walls. The bar retains an old counter, old fireplace and old dado panelling. The snug in the centre was a separate room until an arch was cut between it and the lounge in 1996 and the door locked permanently. The snug retains an old counter, old dado panelling, the bar back could date from the 1930s but the fixed seating is modern. The lounge retains an old counter, old dado panelling, two fireplaces but has been one room for some time. There is a new bar counter throughout. At least a try also for the layout of four rooms and old fittings.Read More
