A traditional, multi-room pub attractively rebuilt by Robinsons in the 1930s. The left-hand door leads to the lounge/lobby bar with fielded panelling to two-thirds height (counter of the 1970s). On the left are two small rooms. The front one has original bench seating with bell-pushes, and a brick fireplace (perhaps post-war); the rear one has loose benches (the dado panelling appears to be 1960s ply with bell-pushes all around). A passage was cut in the 1970s to link the lounge and vault. The vault (right) has its own entrance but is wholly modernised . The small bar was replaced in the 1970s and is in a slightly changed position. There was an off-sales until the 1970s, accessed from the vault door.
