A historic pub interior of some regional importance
Listed Status: Not listedChurt Road
A partly tile-hung pub with an interwar, flat-roofed addition on the left. The small public bar on the right has a red and black quarry-tiled floor, old half-height panelled walls and old fireplace (but new brick infill): sadly the bench seating has been removed. The counter is perhaps a 1960s replacement for a hatch. The larger L-shaped left-hand saloon includes the interwar extension and consisted of two rooms until 1966 when the present counter was installed. Look for the oval mirror in the public bar advertising ‘Mann Crossman Beers – its the malt that matters’.
Small 19th century pub of brick, stone and part tile hung. The left hand section was rebuilt in the 1930s (or just post-war) when a toilet block was added on the right. Originally three small rooms it retains a separate small public bar on the right and a L-shaped saloon bar on the left, which was two rooms until 1966.
On the right the small public bar is little altered with its black and red quarry tiled floor laid diagonally, old half-height panelled walls, old fireplace (with new brick infill), but old bench seating has been removed and the counter may have replaced a hatch possibly c1960. Look for the oval mirror in the public advertising 'Mann Crossman Beers - its the malt that matters'.
The left hand inner door has a very 1930s 'Saloon' on it and leads to a bar with a dado of a distinct 1950s style which incorporates bench seating down the far left side. The bar counter only dates from 1966 but the style carefully matches the wall panelling. The 1930s urinals in the gents remain.
