A wonderfully opulent pub forming part of a block with shops and houses, designed by Thomas Verity and built in 1888-89 for Watneys Brewery. It is faced with banded red brick and pink terracotta. There is an oriel corner turret with a copper dome. Throughout there is lots of original mahogany panelling including a fine carved bar back, and on the right a carved wood surround fireplace with row of three bevelled mirrors and above a large plain mirror set at an angle. The panelled bar counter is no doubt also original. The doorway between the main bar and a smaller room on the right has pillars with decorative capitals. Lots of good-quality window screens around the exterior. Unique in a pub is the double-faced clock hanging within a mahogany beamed ceiling in the centre of the main bar. Ornate plasterwork ceiling. Note the mosaic floor in the doorway on right-hand side and the glazed screen between the right-hand room and staircase to a restaurant upstairs which is wood-panelled but with modern bar fittings.
