The excellent frontage advertises Woodhams Brewery of Rochester and has etched and frosted windows. In the bare, boarded bar are a 1930s sloping panelled counter and panelled walls to picture frame height. The bar-back seems to be from the 1930s with plain mirrors in the upper part. The pub was knocked through to the small left area in around 1990 (formerly living quarters) so here the panelling, brick fireplace and fixed seating are modern.
