The Mitre Public House & Evans


Public house and shop with accommodation over. Probably 1860s
perhaps a recasting of an earlier building. Flemish bond
brick, the left return rendered; slate roof; stacks with
impressively wide brick shafts with corbelled cornices and
multiple pots.
Plan: Large double depth rectangular plan with a rear left
service wing at right angles. Carriage entrance at right end.
Exterior: 3 storeys. Richly-detailed High Victorian 7-bay
front, the central bay slightly wider. Deep projecting eaves
with shaped brackets above a dentil frieze and platband.
Panelled pilasters to left and right; moulded string at second
floor sill level. On the ground floor the pilasters have egg
and dart moulding below big stone brackets; similar treatment
flanking the centre bay on the ground floor. Plain fascia
across the front with a dentil frieze and cornice. 7 segmental
arched windows to the second floor with moulded eared and
shouldered architraves and curly keyblocks. Windows glazed
with 4-pane sashes with margin panes. First floor windows
round-headed with moulded hoods and label stops and a crocket
at the apex of each arch. High transomed casement windows with
glazing bars, each with 2 semi-circular panes above the
transom with a roundel above and pierced spandrels. Original
carriage entrance to the extreme left has a moulded flat arch
with rounded corners, a keyblock and a panelled parapet above
a moulded cornice. The centre bay on the ground floor has been
glazed as a shop window; late C20 shop front to the right, C20
pub front to the left with large panes and timber glazing
bars. The left return of the main block has a recessed 6-panel
door with a glazed overlight with geometric glazing bars and
some sash windows of an early C19 character. The rear wing
also retains a C19 panelled door with a deep overlight with
geometric glazing bars. 2 round-headed rear stair windows in
the centre.
Interior: Gutted for present commercial uses on the ground
floor front but features of interest may survive on the upper
