Former hotel retaining three small little-altered rooms, with a lounge added in the 1960s, also barely changed. The original entrance door has a colourful pictorial glass panel and leads to a very small bar on the right with fittings that may date from the early 20th century. The panelled bar counter has a match-striker under the lip and the three-bay back gantry features one large 'Bell's Perth Whisky' mirror centrepiece and four smaller whisky mirrors around it, two on each side. This half-panelled stand-up man's bar has no tables, just a couple of stools. Note the large bell box above one door.

There are small rooms to the left and rear still with a few old fittings such as a panelled dado; fireplace in rear snug was replaced in 2009. The lounge added in 1966 retains its solid counter, bar back panelling, typical 1960s plank canopy and off-set seating bays, which, while not visually exciting, are very rare. The feature above the counter was added early 1990s and the fireplace was replaced in 2009. The outside gents' has been retained.
