An extraordinary spectacle awaits in the rear parts, almost reminiscent of a brooding Indian temple! This is set within what is a large extension of the early twentieth century to the original late Georgian pub. It consists of three separately defined spaces marked out by four timber posts carrying gargantuan brackets and timber infills to the side walls. It’s great fun but why?! And, in particular, why the sea horse motifs on the brackets? There’s nice early twentieth-century glass in the windows and a colourful inverted glazed dome in the end compartment. Some nice plaster decoration too in the ceilings and a rather exotic timber-surround fireplace.

Late Georgian pub with a large early 20th century extension at the rear and it is this special area that merits an entry in this listing. It consists of three separately defined spaces marked out by four timber posts carrying gargantuan brackets and timber infills to the side walls. There’s lots of early twentieth-century glass in the windows and an attractive colourful inverted glazed dome in the end compartment. The ceiling has plasterwork decoration of a leaf and flower design. A large fireplace has a blue glazed back and some marble, copper hood, and two pillars holding up a wooden overmantle of three mirrors, the middle one being circular. The front parts including a small snug on the left are totally modern.
