The main attraction of this pub is the retention of three largely unspoilt original pub rooms along the front.

An imposing suburban Fuller’s house rebuilt in 1929 to designs by the excellent pub architect T H Nowell Parr and dominated externally by three gables on the rendered frontage. Although the pub has been modernised internally the original arrangements are still very much in evidence, especially along the front. Here there are three distinct rooms with internal partitions; the former saloon bar on the left, the former private bar in the centre and former public bar on the right. The door between the private and public bars is still in situ. A separate room on the far left called "The Old Off Licence" is presumably just that. Needless to say each of the rooms had its own external entrance. The fielded wall panelling remains; the island servery is surrounded by the original counter, but the fitting in its centre looks modern.

Behind the servery is the former dining room, and at the rear the pub was extended in 1934 by Hall Jones & Partners to Parr’s design, where we have an attractive hemispherical skylight. There may have been some rearrangement towards the rear, but as well as the former dining area we now have three other drinking/dining areas.
