The hotel is part of an early C18 coaching inn, originally with
a courtyard plan, and galleried timber-framed rear wings of
earlier dates. In c.1925 the south facade of the west wing was
considerably altered, and a two storey bay window added to the
south gable of the street range. C18 street facade; red brick,
plain tile roofs. Eight bays, three storeys, with plain brick
parapet and stone copings, brick bands between floors. Original
entry to south replaced by a window and other blocked windows
opened in early C20. Five flush framed hung sash windows with
glazing bars in gauged, flat brick arches to around floor.
Coach entrance to north with eliptical arch of gauged bricks and
key stone. Eight first floor, and five second floor windows
with three blind windows, all similar to ground floor, though
some are replacements. Large wrought iron inn-sign bracket over
archway.
Interior details largely C19, some C18 doors. Timber-frame of
rear south wing exposed at first floor. North facing gallery
has C19 windows and a wooden shuttered window reputed to have
been used by Dick Turpin.
