The unusually-shaped bar fittings are the main reason to check out this town centre pub. The Victorian bar counter is a semi-kidney shape with a front sporting pillasters and a row of small brackets along the top part. The bar back is of a semi-flattened, oval shape with five bays, a couple of etched mirrors in the middle and a till drawer (but also some modern additions, particularly on the left-hand side). The front bar was once divided by a partition - the door on the left side originally accessed the rear portion. The reupholstered benches may be old underneath but most of the dado panelling is modern.

Built 1767 and a pub since 1896, this town centre pub is well worth a visit to see the unusually shaped bar fittings. The Victorian bar counter is of a semi-kidney shape with a front containing pilasters and a row of small brackets all along the top part. The bar back fitting is of a semi-flattened oval shape with five bays, a couple of etched mirrors in the centre and a till drawer but some modern additions, particularly to the left side. Originally the front bar was divided into two by a partition - note the door on the left hand side form access to the rear bar originally. The front area has a good cornice. The benches may be old but reupholstered and the majority of the dado panelling is modern.

Across the road the Tap & Spile is a two roomed pub that has a very good set of cut glass and frosted window screens also glazed panels in doors advertising 'Bar' and 'Sitting Room'.
