Two small rooms and a lobby bar. The latter on the right retains its old bare wooden flooring, benches, and servery fittings. There's a small smoke room at the front left (advertised in the door glass) with original fixed seating, a draught screen and bell-pushes all around. The rear room (formerly two separate ones) also has a draught screen, original fixed seating and bell-pushes all around the room but part of the wall at the rear right has been removed. Sadly the attractive inter-war tiled dado in the entrance passage and lobby has been over-painted.

Two small rooms and a lobby bar. It retains brown and white floor tiling but sadly its attractive inter-war tiled dado in the entrance passage and lobby has been painted over in grey. The small right-hand side lobby bar has a bare wooden floor, basic bare benches, original panelled bar counter and two old bar-back fittings with carved canopies and some modern additions. Small smoke room on the front left has a 'Smoke Room' etched panel in the door, original fixed seating with bell-pushes all around and a draught screen by the door but has lost its fireplace.

The rear room (formerly two separate ones) has a door which has lost its original panel, a draught screen by the door, original fixed seating and bell-pushes all around the room but has lost its fireplace.
