Refitted in the 1930s when the splendid green United Breweries faience exterior was added. The pub retains two rooms, the off-sales having been combined with the bar some time ago. The counters and dado panelling are probably from the 1930s, as is the parquet floor in the left-hand bar. The bar-back fittings have seen some modernisation such as the Formica and the glass shelves (perhaps 1960s) while the pot shelves are also modern.
