An 1880 building of London brick converted into a pub around 1930. The public bar retains the 1930 bar counter facing two-sides, the walls have vertical panelling to two-thirds height, the panelled ceiling is painted white, and on the left there is an old wall bench. The lounge has a tapered bar counter that looks 1930s, and the dado panelling around the room also looks old. A door at rear has a ‘Private’ and Prince of Wales Feathers etched panels.

An 1880 building of London brick converted into a pub around 1930 when the rendered flat roof extensions on the left, front, right and rear were added. There were four doors and originally the layout was public bar on the left and a snug and off sales in the middle which have all been combined – the partition separating the off sales was removed in the 1980s – and a lounge bar on the right. What is now a S-shaped public bar retains the 1930 bar counter facing two-sides but recently it has been painted with a ‘graining’-style of paint; the bar back is modern. The walls have vertical panelling to two-thirds height, the panelled ceiling is painted white, on the left there is an old wall bench and it has lost the fireplace.

The lounge has an entrance on the right and also a doorway from the public bar. It has a tapered bar counter that looks 1930s which has recently been painted a red-brown colour. Dado panelling around the room also looks old and is painted a red-brown colour. Door at rear has a ‘Private’ and Prince of Wales Feathers etched panels. On the far left is an outside gents’ with modern fittings.
