A small corner local hidden away in the back doubles that was rebuilt in 1939 by Charringtons. The ground floor was originally two small bars – you can clearly see where the partition was with markings on the bar counter and a small section of the tiling around the base missing. The room has 1930’s dado panelling all around, original counters remain with Charringtons checkerboard floor tiling around the base in a step style. There is a change to the counter on the right end – maybe a staff entrance was here originally? It also looks like there was a staff entrance near where the dividing partition was situated with a gap in the tiled step around the base of the counter. The bar back is a good glazed one but there are some glass shelves typical of the 1960s; also a dumb waiter. A door on the left with ‘Lounge Bar’ in gold on a frosted panel leads upstairs to another bar with more 1939 dado panelling, the counter with horizontal panels is not easy to date and the bar back has mirrored panels.
