A mostly untampered-with 1958 estate pub; although the utilitarian design won’t be to everyone’s taste, few interiors of this vintage have escaped later ‘improvement’. The long, narrow public bar has lost a partition half way down so opens directly on to the remarkable in-pub skittle alley. The counters and bar-backs are original – the second one was initially used for food service. The fireplace is a recent insertion. The smaller lounge is completely intact with padded panelled counter, classic period bar-back, bench seating on two sides, plywood dado, coloured stone fireplace and even the original carpet! Upstairs is the assembly room, not presently in use.
