Built c1880, whilst opened-up (four doors indicate it may have had four room) it still retains quality fittings from a late Victorian refitting. The bare boarded room retains a Victorian panelled bar counter – note the two sizes of panels indicating where a partition was situated originally. The three-bay Victorian bar back has a middle section with a curved mirror, left-hand and right-hand ones having etched panels and all feature birds and flowers; also, four pilasters with capitals. There is an elaborate doorway to the left of the servery with two columns with capitals – all picked out in gold paint – and with a broken pediment. On the right hand side is a vestibule entrance with curved projections having carved woodwork and etched glass panels. Ornate wooden cornice above two doors with narrow mirrored panels below.
