You can't miss this pub's gorgeous Art Nouveau ceramic frontage and entrance. Designed by Latham Augustus Withall and built by W H Lascelles and Co; the decorative panels on the inside external walls of the ground floor, and perhaps most or all of the decorative front, were designed by W J Neatby and manufactured by Doulton and Co of Lambeth. Neatby is most famous for the sumptuous tilework at Harrods' food hall. The decorative gable at high level is dated 1898. Inside, there is a long servery on the left with a pewter-topped counter, and a tiled dado. At the back is a small panelled room (the 'Fox's Den') with three tiny intimate snugs off; but much of the woodwork here is thought to be relatively modern and may date from a 1993 refit.
