Triple sash window with single glazing bars and horns under labels to second and third bays, fourth bay has sash window with vertical glazing bars. 5-step mounting block at attached to fourth bay. First floor has sash window with glazing bars to first bay, sashes with vertical glazing bars to second and fourth bays, window with small paned fixed glazing with pivoted upper part to third bay. Entrance between third and fourth bays has original enriched latch, slate gabled canopy over round headed Date stone. North gabled bay and long outshut under catslide roof, varied fenestration and Victorian post box.
INTERIOR: Servery in room to right of corridor, bar counter and shelves behind of 1996. Room to left was formerly kitchen, large cast iron range in substantial stone fire surround with corbelled lintel. Fixed bench seating along S and E sides and part of N. Timber walls to corridors, 3-light window to rear corridor. Working gas lights in the 2 previous rooms. Slate flagged floors to these rooms and corridors.
A good example of a small rural public house that retains 2 largely unchanged public rooms. Kitchen demonstrates the way private and public use were intermingled in earlier times while former shop shows how the public house role was combined with other economic activity.
