Built in a Queen Anne style for the Cannon Brewery in 1903.The large right hand room is impressive with its moulded ceiling and a modicum of stained glass. The bar back on the left is a star attraction, with its array of small mirrors in the upper tier and an elaborately carved pediment with a centrally mounted clock. A substantial timber screen with high level glazing separates this room from the former billiard room at the rear, although the skylight is now blocked up. The large room on the left hand side of the pub was presumably the saloon bar, and boasts fielded panelling (painted!) and a richly decorated ceiling.

This handsome locally listed pub was built for the Cannon Brewery in 1903. It’s in a Queen Anne style, with prominent gables, a corner spirelet, and mullioned ground floor windows. Below the first floor window level are bas relief panels depicting working men and women (those at the front now obscured).

Within, the large right hand room is most impressive, with its moulded ceiling and a modicum of stained glass. Originally, it would have been subdivided into two or three bars. The central servery is on the left - its quintessential Edwardian barback the star attraction here. It has an array of small mirrors in the upper tier, and above that an elaborately carved pediment with a centrally mounted clock. The counter looks old, but is sadly painted white and has a new top. Opposite the servery is a fireplace with a fine wooden chimneypiece.

A substantial timber screen with high level glazing separates this room from that at the rear.A broad opening has lost its folding doors and is flanked by sturdy twin pilasters. Beyond, the former billiard room has a skylight which is now blocked up. The large room on the left hand side of the pub was presumably the saloon bar, and boasts fielded panelling (painted!) and a richly decorated ceiling.
