The building dates back to 16th-century origins which much change in subsequent centuries. It underwent a facelift about 1930 when the external timbering was exposed and mostly replaced. At this time the interior was much modified and to this scheme belongs the bar counter with its sloping, vertical boarding (the bar-back fittings may be contemporary but are of fairly indeterminate date). The 1930 arrangements consisted of two separate bars at slightly different levels, divided by a screen, part of which survives: the opening of the screen took place in 1971. On the left was the saloon bar which is graced by an impressive amount of wall-panelling, dating back probably to the 17th or 18th century. This space also has a imposing brick fireplace of c.1930. The public bar was rather more simply appointed but it also has a less grand c.1930 brick fireplace. The atmosphere of this venerable pub, although common enough in small towns and country areas, is rare for Greater London. A notable external feature is the 'gallows' inn-sign arrangement.
