1930s brick construction situated in a pedestrianised street. The pub still retains a three-roomed layout – rare in London.
On the right is the lounge bar that has a counter that appears to be 1930s, but has 1960s button leatherette frontage added although retaining its 1930s tiled trough around the base. Note the tall narrow screen attached to the bar – has this been re-positioned? The good tiled and wood surround fireplace looks 1930s with a beveled mirror panel in the mantelpiece. The island-style ‘gantry’ back fitting is streamline late 1930s style at the top; fridges have replaced lower shelves.
The small room, ‘private bar’?, in the middle has a doorway in and out and another original bar counter with 1960s button leatherette frontage added. The left hand public bar has the same original bar counter with 1960s button leatherette frontage added and the fixed seating might be old.
