The York public house


Public house. Late C18 or early C19, with pub detailing
probably of 1872 and pub frontage of c.1900. Yellow brick,
stucco dressings, polished granite to the pub frontage, roof
obscured by parapet. Three storeys, five-window range to
Islington High Street. The ground-floor pub frontage runs from
Islington High Street round into Duncan Street, including a
single-storey wing to the east; Corinthian pilasters of pink
polished granite, fascia and cornice; windows lack
characteristic pub glass but have glazing bars and metal
grilles of 1872 or c.1900; recessed entrance at east end of
Duncan Street front has presumably original woodwork and
decorative glass; westernmost bay in Duncan Street has
relief-moulded and coloured tilework of c.1900; corner
entrance converted to a window. Only the Islington High Street
facade has windows to the upper floors: all flat-arched with
eared and shouldered architraves of moulded stucco, except
that the three middle windows on the first floor are each
flanked by a pair of engaged Corinthian columns supporting
entablature and central pediment.The southern edge of the
building marked by vermiculated quoins; at the northern edge,
a curved public house signboard to two storeys. Stucco band
with pub inscription below modillion cornice, parapet. The
Duncan Street facade has a stucco panel with moulded frame to
upper storeys, and cornice details much simplified.
The interior has a late C19 bar back with embossed coving and
some decorative mirror-glass, but also some alterations; late
C19 bar counter, also altered. All partitions and other
fittings now lost.
