An imposing three-storey pub built in 1890 by Joseph Jones Brewery of Knotty Ash and refurbished from 1927 when the firm was acquired by Higsons. The public bar retains its 1920s interior in the form of its counter, bar-back fitting, dado panelling and fixed seating, but has been re-floored. There is a lobby with signs of an off-sales - note the 'Out-Door Dept: etched panel in a lobby door. There are a number of Knotty Ash Ales etched windows remaining and stained glass panels above. There is an opened-up lounge bar, formerly three small rooms - note a 'Smoke Room' etched panel on a lobby door. There is some 1920s fixed seating, bell-pushes, and the counter seems old but the bar-back fitting looks modern.

The remaining part of the pub is an opened-up lounge bar formerly three small rooms - note a 'Smoke Room' etched panel on a lobby door. There is some 1927 fixed seating, bell pushes, the counter looks old but the bar back fitting looks modern. In an extension added in the 1960s (?) is another opened-up small room.
