This Victorian corner house with a balustrade is a traditional two-bar local and a good example of how a lot of pubs in Portsmouth once were. The Public Bar on the right is likely to have been two rooms originally and changed into one in the 1930s (or possibly the 1950s). It has panelled walls all around but the style looks like it could be post-war rather than pre-war. The fireplace is a wood version of a 1920s stone style one, the bar counter is a plain panelled sloping one that looks at least 50 years old (modern pot shelf), the lower half of the bar back fittings are old, possibly 1930s but the top half of the left hand one is more modern.

Between the public bar and the lounge is a passage in which there is a door to then servery that looks like it could have been an off sales in the past accessed from the second door on Fawcette Road. The Lounge on the left also has paneled walls all around the room that could be post-war rather than pre-war, another fireplace which looks like a wood version of a 1920s stone style one, a sloping bar counter of better quality than the public bar one that could be from the 1930s or 1950s, and bar back with a drawer in it that has lower shelves that look inter-war but the top half is more modern.
