An early 17th-century brick-built corner pub with a lovely exterior. The porch entrance on the main road is out of use so you go in at the corner facing the car park. This entrance opens out into a central bar-lobby where the servery and bar back are quite modern but traditional in style. To the rear right, the lounge has a real fire and service through a hatch-counter but no fixed seating. A corridor on the left leads to the unused front door. In the corner is a small tap room with benches and hatch service while on the other side can be found a tiny snug-lobby and then a pool room with red-tiled floors. Note the numbers on all doors.
