An 1858 building with an unusual layout. The main entrance leads to a drinkers' lobby, then a smoke room on the left - the modern fittings here suggest it is a recent addition. On the right is a wonderful, largely unaltered bar with old narrow benches, old counter (but new top and bar back), wood surround fireplace and cast-iron tables. A narrow passage takes you to a large rear lounge which is an amalgamation of two small rooms. The counter is genuinely old but not so the other fittings.

Built 1858 to an unusual layout it retains much original structure. Main entrance leads to a drinkers' lobby with smoke room on the left which has modern fittings, so may be a later addition. On the right you find a wonderful unaltered bar with old narrow benches. It retains an old counter with new top, new bar back, original fixed seating, brick and wood surround fireplace which could be 1930s but is painted over, complete with three good old cast iron tables, two with marble tops. A narrow passage leads to a large modernised rear lounge which was two small rooms. This retains an original counter, but new top and bar back, and a 1950s fireplace in the rear section.
