This establishment has been re-categorised as Interior Ruined following extensive refurbishment.
The former description is shown below. The accompanying photographs show the interior before the work took place.
Large three-storey building of brick with a porticoe’d entrance. Still operating as a hotel, it retains a lot of fittings from the inter-war period in three rooms. From the front door the lobby has red tiled floor which leads to a carpeted bar area with an inter-war panelled bar counter that has a large door in it. The top has red lino inlaid into the top. There is a 1930s Art Deco wood surround fireplace but the tiles look modern and it houses an old gas fire. On the right there is appointed arch in what looks like inter-war panelling to three-quarters height that leads to a room with another panelled bar counter from the inter-war period. The top has red lino inlaid into the top. The bar back fitting also appears inter-war work with just one fridge replacing lower shelving. There is a wide gap to the rear left where the bar counter looks more 1950s with a shelf along the top front just under the top. The bar back is unusual with two separate sections, plain mirrored back and shelving below and could also be 1950s work. There is another 1930s Art Deco wood surround fireplace but the tiles look modern.
