A prominent corner-site Victorian pub which underwent a major refurbishment in 2005. The central serving area remains, albeit with changes for food service, although the Victorian counter survives. On the left-hand side (approached from the Chippenham Road entrance) there are some impressive reminders from Victorian days. The mosaic floor announces the former name of the pub and there are some mirror and floral tile strips on the left-hand wall. There is some fine mahogany wall panelling and also three stained glass panels, probably re-sited. The central one has a girl playing a lyre.

Update 2014: Refurbished and renamed the Squirrel, it has lost some of its historic fittings and the Victorian counter has been painted a pastel shade of grey.
