3/92 Nos.95 and 97 (Bugs Bar)


- II

House, and restaurant with accommodation above. Built as one 3-cell house in
early or mid C16. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed and pebble-dashed.
Plaintiled roof with axial chimneys of red brick, and flat roofed C19 dormers
with small-pane casements. At 1st storey are C19 sash windows with large
panes. At ground storey No.95 has C18/early C19 mullioned and transomed
window, and Bug's Bar has a pair of flat-roofed splayed bays with similar
windows. C19 6-panelled entrance doors. A carriage entrance at extreme left,
beyond the original service cell, has a pair of C18/C19 boarded gates.
Timber-framing of early C16 type is fully exposed within Bug's Bar: heavy
unchamfered floor joists, and an altered open fireplace of C17/C18 which is
intruded but reuses a C16 cambered and ogee-moulded lintel. The upper floor
was originally long-wall jettied towards the street; in C18/C19 the lower wall
framing was moved forwards to give a flush wall-line, but evidence for window
and door positions remains.
