Built in the late 1800s it retains its layout of two bars and between them an off sales (no longer in use) and many fittings from a refit of 1929 remain. The left hand public bar had a servery added for the first time in 1929 so the bar back (fridges have replaced most of lower shelves) and bar counter are from this date as is the matching dado panelling and the brick fireplace. This is the venue for what is now very rare Old Tyme Singalong on Saturday evening from 9pm and Sunday from 4.30 to 7.30 with Honky Tonk Dave on the piano and Mick on the spoons!

The small right hand saloon bar received a new servery in 1929 so the mirrored bar back and small bar counter date from then as does the brick fireplace. The dado panelling is old and the two U-shaped pieces of fixed seating might be old. A passage runs between the two bars.
