17th-century pub, formerly cottages, that has retained its three room plan and some of its 19th-century fittings. From the front porch, which has fixed bench seating, a long, narrow, brick-floored corridor runs through the pub. The original public room is the brick-floored ‘Men’s Kitchen’ (cf Rose & Crown, Huish Episcopi) on the left with matchboard dodo panelling, fixed bench seating and a 1930s brick fireplace; the settle is a modern replacement for a much older one. An opening has been cut through to another old room to the rear, again with matchboard dado panelling though this has recently been reduced in height. The right-hand room has largely modern fittings. Across the corridor is a small Victorian bar counter with glazed top section but this is no longer in use.

17th-century pub which was formerly cottages. It has retained its three-room plan and many of its 19th-century fittings. The corridor running through the pub has a red-brick floor and half way along it is a splendid Victorian bar counter with its glazed screen above. Beyond it the brick floored servery is likely to have stored the casks of beer on a stillage in the past. There is an old cupboard but most of the shelving is modern, as is the bar top. The original public room is the brick-floored Men’s Kitchen on the front left. It has a small curved high backed settle with a iron stay to the ceiling and acts as a baffle beside the entrance. The small, beamed room has a match board panelled dado with basic benches attached.

There is a 1930s brick fireplace and an opening has been cut to the rear room. This was another original public room where most walls have matchboard panelling to full height, the ceiling is also panelled and there is a large stone fireplace. On the front right is another small room with a 1930s brick fireplace and a hatch cut through to the servery which dates from 19XX. A fourth room has been brought into use in recent years
