A Victorian four-storey brick-built pub with wide entrance lobbies to left and right with colourful tiled floors and floor-to-ceiling tiling. The double entrance door on the left used to lead into what was a corridor to the rear bar as shown by the left-hand wall being tiled floor to ceiling and including four large plain bevelled mirrors in wooden frames. The partition separating the corridor from the front bar has been lost some years ago. The front bar retains its Victorian bar counter and back fitting which has a row of small mirrors along the top section and other mirrors below. In the centre of the bar back is a pedimented doorway the three bays of the bar back fitting: fridges have replaced the lower shelves. Right of the entrance is a reused mantelpiece set against the wall. Ornate plaster ceiling.

The rear bar, now largely open to the front one, has a similar back fitting to that at the front: the original counter remains but has evidently been shortened. There are Victorian glazed panels over the doorway that sits between the two areas of the servery. The rear bar has two skylights with modern glass and the fireplace is a reproduction. Closed Sundays.
