Three-storey Victorian pub of brick painted cream and a ground floor of black larvikite and brown pilasters. At the rear is a former billiards room; on the left is a vestibule with large floral-patterned tiling and a terrazzo floor. The vestibule on the Hertslet Road side has full height light brown tiling on the right hand wall and over the exterior entrance is wrought ironwork including the wording ‘Saloon Bar’.

At the front left there is a rare Victorian three-bay partition with colourful glazed panels in the top, and stretching from the front wall to the counter there is another rare surviving Victorian four-bay partition with colourful glazed panels in two of the sections. The bar counter looks to have been moved back and, as a result, shortened.

Three-storey Victorian pub of brick painted cream and a ground floor of black larvikite and brown pilasters. It retains a couple of rare surviving Victorian partitions. Left hand lobby has a terrazzo floor and on the left hand wall tiling to two-thirds height with a dado of alternating plain pink and tiles in relief and above yellow tiles and some large tiled panels featuring floral designs in relief; on exterior wall side some narrow plain light blue on yellow tiles. The vestibule has double inner doors. The vestibule on the Hertslet Road side has full height light brown tiling on the right hand wall and over the exterior entrance is wrought ironwork including the wording ‘Saloon Bar’.

At the front left there is a rare Victorian three-bay partition with colourful glazed panels in the top but, sadly, it has lost one section – a door attached to the bar counter, but the wood strip above the doorway remains. There is another rare surviving Victorian four-bay partition stretching from the front wall to the counter which is also minus its door near the counter, but the wood strip above the doorway remains, and has colourful glazed panels in two of the three remaining sections (plain wood in the third one). There is a horseshoe-shaped (?) bar counter, which has been moved back so shortened, with a front painted brown. The bar counter has two curved projections at the front end. Bar back looks more Post-War. The dumb waiter still works.

There is a modern short partition on the left hand side and another modern part glazed partition near the door on Hertslet Road side. At the rear left there is a good ‘Wines & The Enkel Arms Spirits’ gilt mirror which looks modern. At the rear left is the former Billiard Room with two modern skylights; the dado looks modern and is painted a pastel grey colour.
