A Victorian pub with an eye-catching exterior and some original interior features.

In a terrace of three houses built c. 1764, this has a fine Victorian exterior which has earned it Grade 2 listing status. It boasts an ornate bay window with curving, etched glass, and a c.1928 photo on display within the pub confirms that at least some of the patterned glass is original. The main panel, with an image of Victoria, and some of the other panes, is certainly not. Two old and battered Charrington’s lanterns still adorn the wall. Victorian tiles cover the floor of the entrance lobby. 

Inside has been opened out but still retains much of interest. Tiling along the floor indicates that a corridor once ran along the right-hand side of the pub and contained doors leading into three rooms all of which would have been served by the bar counter which presumably has always been situated along the left-hand wall. The four mirrors on the right wall are relatively modern replacements but have been done in a style to match the mirrors in the bar-back on the opposite wall, which may well be Victorian. The pale blue tiles of the dado walls are very attractive and may also be Victorian.
