A red-brick corner-site pub that retains much of its layout and fittings. It has an L-shaped lobby with some old fixed seating at the rear, a bench at the end, but modern tiled floor. The island servery on the right has old counter fronts and surrounds but a modern pot shelf. Off the lobby are three rooms. Front-left is a smoke room through a wide arch - original fixed seating all around and now disused bell-pushes. On the rear right is a small snug of irregular shape through a wide arch with more original fixed seating. Front right of the servery is a plain separate vault with old dados and original fixed seating with a curved bar counter.

Red brick Edwardian (?) corner pub originally 'Airey's Ales pub, then Walkers and now Holts. It retains much of its layout and fittings with some opening-out. An wide lobby with some old fixed seating at the rear but modern tiled floor. The island servery on the right looks original with good counter fronts recently painted cream but a modern pot shelf. The mirrored bar back fitting is possibly a replacement - staff confirm there have been changes. Off the lobby are three rooms.

Front-left is a smoke room through a wide arch that has a good Victorian-style fireplace with carved wood surround but the inner is modern, original fixed seating all around and unused bell-pushes. On the rear-left is a plain snug used for pool with the door removed, modern dado and no fireplace so looks to have been brought into use.

At the rear is a part glazed original screen with the central panel removed to create a doorway. On the rear-right is a small snug of irregular shape through a wide arch with more original fixed seating but has lost its fireplace. Front-right of the servery is a plain separate vault with old dados painted dark brown and original fixed seating with a curved bar counter with the front recently painted cream. Note a number of original carved ceiling brackets.
