Prestige Brewers’ Tudor extravaganza, reconstructed 1931 as the brewery tap for Ramsden’s (by Halifax architects Jackson & Fox). The original four-room layout has been merged into one, probably in the 1960s, but the bar, oak panelling and three good fireplaces survive, as does an upstairs function room with its own corner bar and ornate fireplace. The leaded windows are elaborately decorated with heraldic motifs and the intricate wood-carving is work by H P Jackson of Coley. The pub was statutorily listed in 1994 following a successful application by CAMRA. In 2011 the bar was removed from the upstairs function room and the fretwork overmantel from above one of the downstairs fireplaces was removed.
