The original pub room is reputed to be the one with the bare wood floor at the rear right, which was in use until 2007 but is now used for storage by the current food-oriented owners. They removed the wall that created a tiny tap room as you enter and the present public bar on the right. Tap room area has a red and black quarry-tiled floor, old counter and dado panelling. The public bar area has a counter possibly 30 or so years old, dado panelling of similar age, brick fireplace of similar age, some old low basic benches. The lounge on the left is now the dining room still with a small bar counter -which may be from the 1920s but the room has been massively extended to the rear by amalgamating with former private quarters. Retains its outside gents'.
