Famous London pub still with a number of rooms, some of which retain old fittings. The best room is up the staircase which has old dado panelling. It has an uneven wooden floor, floor to ceiling ancient panelling on all the walls, old cupboards in the wall near a 1930s brick fireplace, window shutters and bare bench seating in each of the windows. It is laid out for diners and probably was brought into use in modern times. On the ground floor there are two small rooms on the east end of the building. On the road side a room with wide opening has fielded panelling to two-thirds height with wall benches attached – some of the panelling is very old but part may be inter-war. Note the carved ends on the settle seating. The floor is a modern flagstone-like one. There is also a tiny room/area on the garden side which has a fielded panelled dado which might be inter-war and has a modern wood floor. The main bar has a modern bar counter and bar back, new wooden floor and possibly an old brick fireplace. There is a small area on the west side that is a modern creation.
