Built 1855, the bar fittings appear to date from the 1930s. Corner public bar appears to have absorbed the off-sales where there are double doors on Southampton Street. The counter looks to date from the 1930s (but is painted battleship grey so could be more modern) but the bar back shelves look older. A fireplace has been lost, the match-board panelling is possibly from the 1930s, and there are basic fixed benches. The two rear areas were added to the pub when the neighbouring terrace house was absorbed in the late 70's or early 80's. There is a 1910/1920s tiled and wood surround fireplace in the rear area, the wooden seating and the partition partly separating the areas may be 1950/1960s. There is what could be an old serving hatch at the rear where the ladies toilets are. Gents on right side are modern.
