This imposing former coaching inn has been owned by the same family since 1918. The unsophisticated fittings date mainly from the austerity years of the 1950s and are redolent of that period. The public bar, in particular, has hardly changed since then with a tiled fireplace, high-backed fixed seating and a counter which was a hatch in a screen until the early 1970s. On the left, another public room also has a 1950s fireplace and more high-backed seating, creating a passage from the entrance. The hatch in the corridor on the right acted as the hotel reception. Across the corridor is the lounge, formerly the dining room, which is used for meetings, functions and so forth; another 1950s fireplace here.
