This hotel built of local sandstone in 1870 is well worth a visit to see one of the finest surviving Victorian shuttered and panelled serveries. It still has working sash screens which reach right up to the ceiling. It is two-sided, of three bays length, two bays on the return, and a curved bay at the corner. The five main bays have lower sliding screens with the corner bay and upper ones having fixed glazed panels. The bar-back fitting is mainly old with some wood and modern colourful stained glass. Sadly in the late 1990s there was a major refurbishment that opened up the pub.
