Red sandstone town centre pub of 1879 with a public bar that has not changed in 50 years. This high-ceilinged space retains its original full-height panelling and horseshoe-shaped counter which may date from the 1950 or 1960s. There is an old gantry but also a modest island fitting, possibly a 1950/1960s addition, which is on wheels and has to be moved to gain access to the cellar below. There is 1930s windows glass advertising ‘Afternoon Teas’, and three old window screens: one is framed on the wall and the other reads ‘Breakfast Luncheons High Teas’.

Town centre drinkers' pub in a three-storey building from 1879 in mid-Victorian Renaissance style with a public bar not changed in 50 years. The high-ceilinged public bar has original full-height panelled walls and a horseshoe-shaped counter that could be of 1950/60s vintage, both of which have had their dark stain removed in recent years and replaced by a light one. This pub not only has an old carved back gantry but also a modest island gantry, possibly a 1950/60s addition, which is on wheels and has to be moved to gain access to the cellar below. Good 1930s windows including one etched 'Afternoon Teas' and three old window screens - one is in a frame on the wall and another reads 'Breakfast Luncheons High Teas'. Nowadays only crisps and nuts are available! The small pool room has no old fittings.
