Inter-war fittings are the main point of interest here. The public has a ply-panelled bar counter with a trough round the base whilst the pool room has a thirties fireplace with bell pushes either side. The lounge is modernised but, unusually, has a bell to attract service on the counter.

Single storey building dating back to the 17th century which retains a number of fittings from the inter-war period. The public bar has a mainly yellow and red tiled floor, an inter-war ply panelled bar counter with a trough all around the base (bar top looks modern) but the gantry is modern. There is a brick fireplace that looks 1950s and the inner lobby has inter-war panelling which is the date of the inner door.

On the right is a small pool room with larger inter-war brick fireplace with a bell push on the right and left sides. The (non-working) bell box is situated high up over the front windows in the public bar. There is also an L-shaped lounge i.e. extended but it has modern bar fittings, but, unusually, there is a bell to attract service on the bar counter front. The gents retains a cream with green edging terrazzo floor, but it otherwise modernised.
