Public house, probably former house. Early to mid C17.
Timber-framed and rendered with double range of clay plain
tiled roofs (concrete plain tiles on inner slopes). 2 storeys
with low attic storey and cellars and jettied on NE and SE
sides. Short single-storey extension on SW side.
EXTERIOR: the southernmost gable has one double-hung sash
window with small panes and plain bargeboards. The other gable
has a 2-light casement with moulded surround and cross-glazing
pattern. The first floor of NE elevation has 3 flush
double-hung sash windows with small panes. The equivalent SE
elevation has 2 similar windows, one each side of a narrower
double-hung sash.
Ground floor has C19 public house frontage with windows and
doors between pilasters and substantial imitation jetty
brackets. Small risers are panelled in wood. Brick, gabled
extension with rendered front with double-hung sash window
with 2 vertical glazing bars and small gabled dormer. Large
stack on SW flank.
INTERIOR: remarkable timber frame of two-and-a-half-storey
type and 'A' frame roof. Paired gables, to front and rear have
reversed assembly at eaves (did they project?) and a wide
'stack bay' crosses centre of plan. Here, outward facing,
jowled posts support ends of valley plates. Ground- and
first-floor framing is chamfered with lamb's tongue stops and
exceptionally late examples of halved and bridled scarf joints
in top plates. Corner supported on dragon beam.
First-floor rooms have series of contemporary plaster ceilings
with plastered beam soffits with rose, fleur-de-lys leaves and
circular pendants. Also exposed spine beams in extension.
