Listed Status: II35 Burscough Street
Recent refurbishment has removed historic fittings’ . This pub has therefore been re-categorised as Interior Ruined.
The former description is shown below. The accompanying photographs show the interior before the work took place.
Late 17th or early 18th century building. A passage from the front door to rear has lots of fielded panelling that looks to be from the 1930s. The servery was possibly created in the 1930s from an old sweet shop front - the lower part has 1930s looking fielded panelling as does the side counter. There are good old bar back shelves with barley twist columns holding them up. The small snug behind the servery has an inter-war wood surround fireplace with new tiles and interior. The fixed seating looks inter-war with bell pushes in the panel above and a baffle. Originally you had to be invited into the snug.
There is a Smoke Room on the front left with a figure '3' on a button on the door which has at least inter-war fixed seating, possibly an inter-war fireplace with new tiles. Excellent 'Buck In Th Vine Smoke Room' etched window. In recent times the bench seating was cut short near the door and, although it was always a step down to the room, near the arch cut into the wall the floor is a platform and an oak floor has been added. At the end of the passage through the pub are two opened-up areas. The left side front part of which was a separate Tap Room with a partitioned wall and door until 1956. There is a figure '4' on a button on the cellar door. There is an old brew house at the rear and stables.
