Early 19th century creeper-covered two-storey Grade C listed inn that retains bar fittings from interior changes in 1910. Sadly changed in 2020 with the wall removed that separated the public bar from the smoke room. The small lobby and its inner doors with etched glass bearing words 'Bar' (right) and 'Smoke Room' (left) were however retained. The bar has some old dado panelling painted grey and a wood surround fireplace. The counter was also carefully extended to the left by about a third and it does look like the whole counter dates from 1910. The fine 1910 three bay gantry remains with its integral clock and three etched mirrors. To the rear, through a wooden archway, is a room with full-height ply panelling, a number of bell-pushes around it, and Coldstream Guards memorabilia, including a visitor’s book.
