The Hanley Arms public house


Public house. Mid-C19 with ground-floor frontage of c.1900.
Brick stuccoed, the ground-floor front of grey and pink
polished granite, roof obscured by parapet. Three storeys over
basement, four-window range to Hornsey Road. The ground-floor
frontage projects slightly; base of grey polished granite, and
three entrances on Hornsey Road flanked by pilasters fronted
by columns of pink granite on grey granite bases, with
freely-designed capitals supporting fascia and cornice, and
segmental pediment over central entrance; the central and
corner entrances retain small pedimented cornices to the
doorcase, and the Saloon Bar and corner entrances have
elaborate wrought iron grilles screening their upper parts;
the two windows to Hornsey Road are flattened bows with
original glazing bars but no engraved or decorated glass;
elaborate wrought-iron cresting to cornice. First-floor
windows round-arched with moulded stucco architraves and
keystone; sill band to second-floor windows which are
segmental-arched with moulded stucco architraves; chamfered
quoins to either end of Hornsey Road facade; moulded stucco
cornice, now simplified on Hornsey Road; parapet; stacks set
behind parapet.
INTERIOR: . The plan has lost all its subdivisions, but the
columns carrying the front wall survive, as does the embossed
ceiling in large part. Good chimneypiece, presumably to former
saloon, with pedimented overmantel framing engraved, gilded
and faceted mirror-glass, and a series of five pedimented
panels of engraved, gilded and faceted mirror-glass, four to
south wall and one ex situ.
