This brick and Norfolk carrstone building was purchased by Steward & Patteson in 1929 who shortly afterwards refitted and extended it. The public bar on the left has a bare wood floor, a sloping bar counter that looks very 1930s but may be a replacement, a bar back mixing 1930s and more recent work and inter-war bench seating and brick fireplace. There is a dado of 1930s panelling, painted cream where a section of the bench seating has been removed. The lounge on the right is completely covered in 1930s wall panelling which indicates the room has been this size since that time. The bar back fitting is the original with a mirrored back as is the bar counter. The fielded panelled door has a glazed panel in the top, a good high backed bench as you enter and seating probably from the 1930s. A 1960s looking fireplace on the far right has a built-in clock above it. An off-sales hatch between the two rooms has been lost.

The lounge on the right is completely covered in 1930s wall panelling which indicates the room has been this size since c. 1930.
