A 1916-dated photograph inside this stone-built end-of-terrace pub suggests that this is when it was enlarged - the photo shows etched glass each side of the central entrance. The public bar, front right, is the best room here, with its early 20th-century fittings - much of the bar-back, counter, fire-surround and some panelling. The passageway is another traditional feature as it serves also as a drinking space; note the lovely mosaic floor from front to back and the hatch to the servery. The rear right room also has a serving hatch but both it and the left hand room (once two small rooms) have been modernised.

Stone-built end-of-terrace pub, said to have been enlarged in 1916. This is the date of a photograph in the pub which shows etched glass either side of the central entrance ('Bar' clearly shown in the right-hand windows). The star is the public bar on the front right-hand side. This small room has some early 20th-century fittings - much of the bar-back, counter, fire-surround and some panelling. The other very traditional feature is the passageway which with the lobby has a lovely mosaic floor from front to rear with its hatch to the servery, and where passageway drinking is still popular. The rear right room has a hatch for service to the back of the bar; but it and the left hand room, which was formerly two small rooms, are modernised.
