The small servery at the rear has a lapped wood counter and a bar-back fitting with a series of drawers.

Rendered building with a flat roof extension (i.e. the inside gents' toilets). It has a compact interior still with four small rooms / areas and looks like it was last refitted in the 1950s. Has a Victorian tiled floor in the lobby and Victorian coloured glass in the inner door. The front right small room has two old high backed settles, the stone fireplace appears old and has a log fire, and a bench at the rear also looks old. A front bench looks more from the 1950s. The small front left room has a doorway, another stone fireplace that looks old with a log fire and the fixed seating is post-war. There is a floor-to-ceiling ‘modesty screen’ near a door which has a ‘Ladies’ 1930s etched panel.

A double width doorway leads to the small servery at the rear which has a recently sanded down lapped wood counter which is possibly inter-war but more likely post-war and the bar back fitting has a series of drawers. The flagstone floor here is a mixture of old and new. To the left of the servery i.e. rear left is a tiny area with a 1950s brick fireplace. To the right of the servery i.e. rear right is a tiny area with a 1950s brick fireplace covered by a table and the fixed seating either side looks 1950/1960s. A 1930s door leads to a passage with ply panels leads to the gents with ‘Gents’ in 1930s etched panel in the door and has three large urinals possibly from the 1950s?
