This late 18th century building became a pub in 1896 and has five small rooms. Service from a substantial servery is via a hatch/doorway and two very small bars with modern tops, both not much larger than hatches. The lobby on the car park side has a similar serving arrangement. The public areas have expanded considerably but the two old pub rooms (on the right) are still clearly in evidence - a welcome example of a country pub not being spoiled in the late 20th century craze to create wide open spaces. Not many traditional furnishings or fittings survive - a settle in the left room, and two brick fireplaces which are probably inter-war.

A left-hand extension was added in the last century and consists of two small rooms.
