UPDATE 2020.

Refurbished in 2018 and most features of heritage interest have been lost. This pub has therefore been re-categorised as Interior Ruined.

The former description is shown below. The accompanying photographs show the interior before the work took place.


18th.century town centre pub that had a refit in the 1930s and still retains some fittings from that period including parquet floors, some panelling, doors and fireplaces. The bar on the right saw changes in the early 1960s, which is the date of the bar counter and bar back. Through a gap in a timber and glass partition is another small room. This has a parquet floor, old dado panelling, a hatch to the side of the bar and a modern fireplace. On the front left, where there is now a hatch/doorway, a small bar was removed in the early 1980s, the two small rooms combined, and a new bar counter added at the rear.
