This mid-terrace pub dating from 1845, the Constitution has a most interesting and pleasant interior. It is just a single spacious room, fully panelled to picture-rail height, and with a single central entrance. This work is really quite plain and the servery is in the same style but, sadly, the bar back was replaced in 2017 and counter front painted a dark blue. The question is – what date is all this? The woodwork could be from almost any time in the mid-20th century but the stone, mullioned window at the rear suggests an inter-war rather than a post-war. It became a Henekeys house in 1921 and no doubt there were changes to the interior just after this date. Modern floor and fixed seating. Fielded panelling continues up one side of the stairs to Churton Room upstairs which has no old fittings.
