A red-brick rebuild of 1908 brick with a wonderfully colourful ceramic frontage including the pub name which also appears in mosaic at two entrances. The three front doors indicate at least three separate rooms originally. The rear saloon would have been accessed via a partitioned passage on the left (the tiled dado here is modern). The island bar counter is believed to be the original but in about 2005 it was extended to the right so now covers an area of 1908 tiling. The modest island 'gantry'/bar-back fitting may be original but the pot shelf is modern. In 2005 a false ceiling was added. A number of good etched windows remain though some may be replacements. The small areas of fixed seating in the bay windows are also original. There is a fine dado of brown tiling on the right-hand side wall, a ceramic fireplace and Art Nouveau stained glass window. The pub has been extended to the rear in recent years. Don't miss a trip to the amazing, enormous Wetherspoons which has colonised the Royal Victoria Pavilion close by and which is now claimed to be the largest pub in the country..
