A real time-warp which has been in the same family ownership since 1918. An imposing Virginia creeper covered hotel still with its stables from its days as a coaching inn. The fittings are not sophisticated but are interesting as showing the kind of things installed in many a pub during the austerity years of the 1950s. The public bar with 'Select Bar' on the door from the corridor is virtually unchanged since then with a tiled fireplace, high-backed fixed seating and a bar counter which was a hatch in a screen until the early 1970s and 70s ply panels cover old wood on the front.
