The public bar of this food-led pub was refitted in the late 1950s and has barely changed. The 1950s bar back has 'Whitbread' illuminated panels at the top, a glass block backing and some Formica shelves. Most fittings such as these have been ripped out of pubs in recent years making this one a rare survivor. The bar counter, wood-backed fixed seating with two baffles and stone fireplace all date from the late 1950s, the only change being a new wood top on the old Formica one, which remains. Note the old Bass Blue Triangle glass fronted sign on the wall. To the right an arch leads to a room which was extended by removing a wall and fireplace. The front section retains a two door leaded glass panel hatch to the side of the bar with a Formica top and old bare bench bay window seating. There is a two-part dining room on the left with no old fittings. The function room on the right can be converted to a skittle alley.
