Public house. Late C18, with earlier origins, and
incorporating C15 undercroft; C19 extensions and early C20
alterations. Ground floor refaced in red brick in Flemish
bond, with raised quoins of brick, over ashlar basement; first
floor roughcast and whitewashed; left side rendered and
whitewashed. Coped gable and rounded kneelers to pantile roof;
brick stacks at each end, left one extruded, and in centre.
2-storey 4-window front on tall basement. Cellar opening with
hinged grille at right end of basement. Round-arched entrance
contains flight of steps leading to panelled double doors. On
each side of doorway are recessed shallow 3-light bow windows
with square-lattice casements beneath segmental arches; at
right end similar 5-light window. First-floor windows are
12-pane sashes in vestigial plain surrounds with painted stone
sills. Iron-clamped guttering. INTERIOR: medieval undercroft
now forms cellar beneath right end of building. 3 narrow bays
of single-chamfered rib-vaulting on corbels with bosses.
2-centred arches on north side now blocked. Later openings in
blocked east and west walls have keyed lintels. Undercroft is
the sole surviving relic of the medieval Hospital of St Peter,
probably founded by the Gilbertine Priory of St Mary, in C12.
