Rebuilt in 1928 it originally had four rooms and an off-sales but the walls that created the off-sales were removed in c.1990. The left hand Saloon bar looks like it could have been two rooms in the past with two 1930s brick fireplaces (painted red) and doors at each end. The bar counter has a distinct frontage which resembles counters installed in 1950s pub but maybe the original. The bar back fitting is from 2000. Some 1930s fixed seating remains.

The Lounge Bar on the right has a bar counter which does look like it could be the original as it closely matches dado panelling but it has a modern top. The bar back was replaced in 2000. There is a small original brick fireplace and original fixed seating. On the far right another Lounge Bar is now a dining room. It has a lovely plaster cornice of acanthus leaves and grapes, a 1930s brick and wood surround fireplace but the bar fittings look no older than the 1970s and may have replaced a hatch. Modernised toilets.
