Rebuilt in 1891 this single storey small corner pub with balustrade that, apart from losing internal divisions, is little changed for many years. It has a fine five-bay mirrored back fitting with a central ballustraded bay. There is an old bar counter curved at both ends. Along the exterior walls are good seating bays of indeterminate age. Note the 1920s ‘Bass on Draught’ with the red triangle on exterior windows and also the ‘To Ladies & Gentlemen’s Toilets’ blue etched and frosted glass panel in the door at the rear. Half timbering on the walls was presumably added in the 1960s. Good leaded lights above exterior windows.
