Victorian corner pub of brick which still retains some old fittings; multiple entrances indicate it was divided by partitions into a number of bars originally. The main part of the pub is now an L-shaped bare wood floor bar with what looks like a Victorian counter facing two sides with brackets and all the front painted white. There is a heavily carved section of the bar back that looks old with a plain mirror and some modern additions. The ceiling on the right hand side appears to be of metal sections and is an impressive reproduction.
A wide arch on the left with decorative sprandrels all painted light blue leads to what was originally the billiard room with a plain skylight, good wood surround fireplace could be old. Impressive entrance from Pryland Road with tiling in multi-colours and a mosaic floor with the wording “Billiards Saloon Bar”.
