Some interesting remnants here from an inter-war Carringtons refit - the (shortened) bar counter (with distinctive tiled apron), bar back fitting, panelled walls and herringbone wood floor. The vestibule side entrance has attractive stained glass.

A three-storey Victorian building given a refit by Charringtons in the inter-war years. Although the room divisions have been lost in recent years, it still retains the inter-war counter (note that it has been shortened on the left side), bar back fitting, panelled walls and herringbone wooden floor. Note the distinct Charrington's red and cream tiled apron around the base of the counter. Also, a vestibule entrance on the Nelson Street side with attractive stained glass. The etched windows are likely to be replacements.
