UPDATE 2021

A refurbishment several years ago removed most of the old fittings. Now a candidate for the Local Inventory for the few such fittings that survive

The former description is shown below


Built 1903 of red brick with stone dressings by architects Walter S. Paul & James for the Bristol Brewery Georges and Co. Ltd. From the entrance on Woolcot Street is what looks like an off sales with part glazed partition walls to the left and right. The lounge bar on the left was two rooms in the past - note two fireplaces, which look modern. The counter could date from the 1960s so this may be the date of the revamp? Bar back looks modern. The ladies and gents toilets on this side are intact with a dado of inter-war tiles. On the right the counter is not old as the pub was extended to the rear in recent times - when? Fixed seating could be 60s. Fireplace on the right may be old. Good part glazed vestibule looking entrance to the gents looks to have been moved to here as it fits awkwardly.
