This was a small terraced pub with three separate small wood panelled bars - two at the front and a snug at the rear. A partition was removed in 1960/70s to create the front bar we see today - there is a mark on the counter indicating where the partition was - and there is disused 'Private Bar' door on the left. The pub retains a 1930s bar counter, 1930s bar back, fielded panelling to picture frame height all around and two old benches. At the rear is a tiny snug with bare wood floor, 1930s fielded panelling on the walls, a 1930s tiled and wood surround fireplace with new cast-iron interior. Service is from a doorway to the back of the bar. In 1985 a shop (number 118) on the right was added by knocking through - the 1930s panelling on the wall could be from the pub side? There is a (1930s?) Victorian-style tiled and cast-iron fireplace with panelled strip above at the rear of the former shop. Ladies and gents on lower levels at rear have no old fittings.
