A building 'of doubtful age' (Historic England) – possibly 17th-century with a good deal of later change and enlargement – this pub retains small rooms at the front with fittings from about 1960. From the front door a passage runs to the rear with old fielded panelling to two-thirds height all along and a counter to the front left room servery with a copper top. On the right further down on the right is a snug. A doorway leads to the small front left-hand bar with a c.1960 lino tiled floor, a bar counter front with barrel staves with brass straps and a copper top. The bar-back fitting has a Tudor-arched central section and display cases with leaded glass windows. Two small rooms on the right appear to have been combined.

Possibly 18th century (a metal water spout has 'IBM 1747') pub of brick and render that despite enlargement retains small rooms at the front with fittings from around 1960. From the front door a passage runs to the rear with old fielded panelling to two-thirds height all along (some similar panelling may be more modern) and a counter to the front left room servery with a copper top. A doorway leads to the small front left bar with a 1960s lino tiled floor, a bar counter front with barrel staves brass straps and a copper top - a popular early 1960s style. The bar back fitting has a Tudor shaped arch central section and display cases with leaded glass windows which could be from the 1930s? The fixed seating could well be at least 50 years old but the dado panelling could be more modern.

From the passage a wide gap on the right leads to two small rooms that may have been combined in the 1960s. It has fielded panelling to two-thirds height all around both areas, good fixed seating (dated?), and a small fireplace on the right hand wall. Further down the passageway on the right is a snug with a door, more good fielded panelling to two-thirds height, and what looks like a 1950s radiator. There is a small alcove on the rear left of the passageway. In the large rear room in the extension there is a small area at the front left of some character with half timbered exposed wall.
