Late 18th or early 19th century three storey pub with a frontage of c1900 when it was refitted internally. The ground floor of the exterior has polished granite including Corinthian pilasters and a colourful relief-moulded tiled panel of c.1900 on the Duncan Street side. Originally split into four separate rooms it is now L-shaped with a vestibule on the Duncan Street side having some good etched glass panes and a screen remains of the vestibule on the Islington High Street side. It still retains a c.1900 bar back fitting facing two sides with embossed coving and some decorative mirror-glass, bur with modern shelving. The bar counter is also from c.1900 but it has a modern top and on the far left it appears to have been shortened as the bar back here has no counter in front of it.
