A 1930s estate pub which has kept a good deal of its original plan, fittings and character. It is in the popular ‘brewers’ Tudor’ style with imitation half-timbering above and buff faïence cladding below. On the far left is a former off-sales shop, now disused of course. Then comes the public bar which, like the rest of the pub, has three-quarter-height wall panelling. The vine decoration in the cornices is also repeated throughout. Beyond the main public bar is a smaller extension and the remnants of a sliding screen that would have separated the two (the rear part has a sash window to the servery). The screen on the right of the public bar has a low service doorway to what was a snug. This has now been amalgamated with the saloon. Further right still is a still extant sliding screen to the large rear room. The counter and back fittings are original as is the high, pink terrazzo spittoon trough which still stands in front of the counter.
