1936 Neo-Tudor pub. The front bar has a dado of fielded panelling, an inter-war panelled counter, original bar back fitting, and the doorway to the rear room retains the top glazed section. The rear room up a step has an inter-war dado of fielded panelling, original inter-war bar counter with a cupboard and an inter-war bar back fitting. At the rear is a wonderful inter-war inglenook fireplace of brick with a copper hood with seating either side.
1936 Neo-Tudor pub with an excellent ceramic 'House of Toby' (i.e. Charringtons) sign on the outside wall. The three doors on the left hand side indicate there was originally three rooms but there is now just two but the top half of the dividing wall has been removed ‘for supervision’.

The front bar has a dado of fielded panelling, an inter-war panelled counter, original bar back fitting but most of the lower shelves lost to fridges. The gents’ here looks traditional / original but has modern wall tiles. Note the Devil Among The Tailors / Table Skittles ready to play – a rarity in a London pub. Doorway to rear room retains the top glazed section.

The rear room up a step has a bare wood floor, an inter-war dado of fielded panelling, original inter-war bar counter with a cupboard and an inter-war bar back fitting. At the rear is a wonderful inter-war inglenook fireplace of brick with a copper hood with seating either side. The gents at the rear is not changed apart from modern wall tiling in the main area – it has three big inter-war urinals, red floor tiles and a dado of inter-war tiling in the ante-room.
