This 1930s Art Deco drinkers' pub is well worth a visit to see what may be the only glass bar counter in the country, made up of some 160 ribbed glass segments and with a wooden top. The 1930s fittings include a good set of front windows and diagonal door handles. The back gantry has a base, which could date from the 1930s, with a series of drawers, and a top part of sunken shelving with some glass shelves added in the late 1950s. The walls have full height panelling; there is a 1950s brick fireplace in the opened-up area on the right, and all the fixed seating looks of a similar age. A door from Gowan Street leads into a passage that has an intact off-sales hatch with its two sliding windows. In the gents toilet the WC did have a working penny in the slot on the door until recently but this now resides on the wall of the lounge upstairs, which has a post-war bar counter, new bar top and new shelves for a gantry.
