A two-storey 1880s-built community pub with single-storey extensions to left and right. Originally there was just one bar in the middle but, in the late 1950s, George's Bristol Brewery carried out a refurbishment – little has changed since. The lounge on the left is the original pub room extended to the left by incorporating a store room. It has a counter with a classic 1950s front, mirrored bar-back and dado panelling on the walls painted bright red. The only changes are the blocking-up of a fireplace left of the counter and the metal pot-shelf. Note the original front door in the bay. The public bar on the right was a private living room until the revamp and has a plainer counter front, period bar-back fitting, more bright red dado panelling and a tiled and minimal wood surround fireplace - even the original display case remains.
