Early to mid 19th century end of terrace brick building of three storeys retaining two bars with inter-war fittings separated by a rare (for London) partition. The public bar on the right has a separate entrance, bare wood floor, dado panelling that may be inter-war. The partition on the left almost reaches the ceiling and has leaded glazing in the top which looks inter-war work. Curved counter front could be inter-war (or possibly post-war), there is a good late 1930s tiled fireplace, and the fixed seating at the rear looks more post-war than inter-war as does the glazed screen on top of it. Saloon bar on the left has a bare wood floor, two doors, both with ‘Saloon Bar’ etched and frosted panels which could imply the room has been one since the inter-war period. There is another curved counter which has cupboards in the front which does make it look inter-war, the wood surround fireplace with a cast iron interior looks modern but the bar back fitting has an array of glass shelves which are a feature of the 1960s. The double doors at the back of the public which now access the conservatory extension but would originally have been external doors.
