The Vauxhall Inn

II

Includes: The Vauxhall Inn VAUXHALL ROAD.
Public house. Late C19. The lower storey faced with glazed,
polychrome, ceramic tiles; the upper storey red brick with
stone details, hipped slate roof, brick stacks. Arts and
Crafts style. A rectangular, double-depth block on south-west
corner with Vauxhall Road with a central wing at rear.
EXTERIOR: two storeys and cellar; on the ground floor the
tiled frontages to Barton Street and to Vauxhall Road in an
exuberant Arts and Crafts style with Baroque details. The
front facing Barton Street has seven tiled bays with a narrow
eighth bay at the right hand end, all defined by panelled
pilasters on pedestals with foliated capitals at the springing
level of the segmental-arched heads to the doorway and window
openings; entrance doorways in the first and in the fifth bays
and large windows in the other full-width bays, all with
decorative moulded tile surrounds; plain spandrels above the
windows and elaborately moulded foliated spandrels above the
arches which project on moulded corbels over the doorways; a
moulded entablature at first-floor level, with ceramic tile
inscriptions in the frieze: THE VAUXHALL INN above the three
windows to the left and WINES AND SPIRITS above the two
windows to the right; above the entablature over each doorway
a swan-neck pediment supporting a finial. In each window a
moulded timber frame with a full-width lower light and, above
an upper transom, three segmental-arched lights, windows 1, 3,
4 & 5, have acid-etched privacy panel with Mitchell and Butler
monogramme; window 2 has plain glass with inner glass panel.
On the first floor stone quoins at the angles; four sashes
with central vertical glazing bars, two sashes to the left and
two to the right of the pediment over the right hand doorway,
all in openings with stone quoins to the jambs, stone lintels
and projecting stone sills.
The front facing Vauxhall Road has on the ground floor four
tiled bays with a narrow fifth bay at the right hand end, in
the left hand bay a doorway with a pediment above the
entablature which is inscribed in tile: THE VAUXHALL INN; on
the first floor three sashes; all details on both floors are
similar to those on the front to Barton Street.
INTERIOR: inner lobby with stained glass to upper panels of
glazed screen; lounge bar has panelled bar with turned
balusters to cornice with central clock; reset bar-back.
HISTORY: the exterior, with its glazed tiles and etched glass,
is a particularly good example of late C19 pub architecture.
The name of the inn commemorates the Blenheim pleasure gardens
(renamed "Vauxhall" in c1832) that were established just to
the south of the site in 1812.
