The set back position of this 1937 pub results from it having replaced an older building. The right-hand passage has an inter-war tiled dado and five of the six doors still have glass panels etched with the room names. The off-sales has become a kitchen but the entrance remains, tucked away on the right. In the bar, the bar back is original but the counters have been replaced and extended into the smoke room and lounge, where the bar back is 1960s/70s. Fixed seating and a baffle in the bar and smoke room are from 1937 but not so the fireplaces - the surround on the lounge fireplace does, though, look genuinely old.

A three roomed 1937 brick pub that replaced an older building hence its set back position. The right hand passage has an inter-war tiled dado and there are 5 out of 6 doors that retain their etched glass panels with room names including a "Lounge and Smoke Room" one in the left corridor. The off-sales is now a kitchen but the entrance tucked away on the right beyond the black doors remains with a 'Off Sales' glazed panel inn the door. The main bar back is original but bar counters have been replaced and extended into the smoke room and lounge, where there is a 1960/70s bar back. Fixed seating and a baffle in the bar and smoke room are original but fireplaces have been replaced. The surround on the fireplace in the rear lounge looks original. Both gents and ladies toilets on the left and right sides are intact with inter-war tiled dados painted over apart from the top line of dart green glazed tiles left untouched.
