Edge of town inter-war pub which has kept its three rooms, although the public bar may have swallowed up an off-sales and the lounge has been enlarged. Some of the fielded panelling is original as could be the lower part of the bar back in the public.

Distinctive inter-war brick pub on the edge of town still retaining three rooms. The public bar on the right may well have been two small rooms (or public bar and off sales)and retains 1930s fielded panelling painted grey and a small 1930s brick fireplace. The bar back fitting looks more modern than old (mirrors inserted in 2005), but the lower half could be old. The small smoke room also has more panelling painted grey and brick fireplace. On the left the lounge with a good external porch has been knocked through to the far left dining room with a large fireplace from the 1970s. The single storey building to the left of the pub is part of the council swimming baths.
