A majestic and remarkably little altered 1930s "improved public house" in neo-Georgian style retaining five rooms, including an enormous dining room illuminated by clerestory windows on all sides. 

The entrance lobby on the south east corner retains a tiled wall advertising "Courage & Co Ltd". The main bar on the left retains its original bar counter – the end section was re-instated to its original length in the Wetherspoon's restoration of 2016. The bar back fitting is also original, as is almost all of the two-thirds height wall panelling. There is a stylish mosaic-tiled fireplace with Art Deco wood surround at one end and a tiled and wood surround fireplace at the other end that are both original. A number of original windows advertising ‘Luncheons & Snacks’, ‘Wines & Spirits’ survive.

The Lounge bar in the middle, which is largely opened-up to the main bar, also retains its original curved inter-war bar counter and Art Deco bar back fitting with plenty of leaded glass windows around the servery. The room is lit by a leaded glass skylight and has more panelling on the walls to two-thirds height. Art Deco cornices survive here and elsewhere. There is another stylish mosaic-tiled fireplace with Art Deco wood surround.

The off sales shop remains but has been converted into a snug. Also on the east side of the pub is the Green Room where the original curved bar counter and bar back have been retained but are redundant so the counter acts as a long table with bar stools for customers' use. The dado panelling appears to be original.

The former Assembly Hall has been converted into another seating area, now known as the Dining Room, having been fitted out with seating and tables in open booths, but still retains the stage (adorned with a selection of musical instruments that were discovered during the pub’s 2016 restoration).

A large inter-war improved public house built in the late 1930s in Neo-Georgian style for Courage & Co, possibly by the brewery architect. It is remarkably little altered retaining 5 rooms and was impressively restored by Wetherspoon's (prompted by the Conservation Officer of Ealing Council) prior to re-opening in 2016 after a 6 year closure.

The entrance lobby on the south east corner retains a tiled wall. The main bar on the left retains its original bar counter – the end section was re-instated to its original length in the Wetherspoon;s restoration. The bar back fitting is also original but some lower shelves have been replaced by fridges. The walls have original panelling to two-thirds height but the dado panelling on the wall at the end of the servery is from 2016. There is a stylish mosaic-tiled fireplace with Art Deco wood surround at one end and a tiled and wood surround fireplace at the other end that are both original. A number of original windows advertising ‘Luncheons & Snacks’, ‘Wines & Spirits’ survive. A former single WC also survived but now is a ‘baby changer’.

The Lounge bar in the middle, which is slightly opened-up to the main bar, also retains its original curved inter-war bar counter and Art Deco bar back fitting (most of lower shelving to fridges) with plenty of leaded glass windows around the servery. The room is lit by a leaded glass skylight and has more panelling on the walls to two-thirds height. Art Deco cornices survive here and elsewhere. There is another stylish mosaic-tiled fireplace with Art Deco wood surround.

The off sales shop remains but has been converted into a snug. Also on the east side of the pub is the Green Room where the original curved bar counter and bar back have been retained but are redundant so the counter acts as a long table for customers with bar stools on both sides of it. Dado panelling looks original.

The Assembly Room has been converted into another seating area having been fitted out with seating and tables in open booths but does retain the stage (adorned with a selection of musical instruments that were discovered during the pub’s restoration) and is lit by a clerestory. To serve this area some modern double doors were removed and a small bar counter added in the style of the inter-war ones. Lots of original timber doors with brass handles remain. Some toilets have original fittings.
