A basic, drinkers' pub with a little-altered 1950s interior. The public bar has panelled walls, a stepped counter front (top is new) and a straightforward mirrored back gantry. On the right, a sitting room, minus door and with a glass panel recently placed in the partition wall is now used for darts. The small sitting room on the left remains intact with panelled walls, bell-pushes, door and fixed seating. Both the ladies' and the gents' are unchanged with terrazzo floors and walls. In the late 1990s, a former sweet shop on the right was converted into a new lounge bar. In 2003 a third of the bar back was cut through to make it easier for the bar staff to see customers waiting for service in the lounge.
