A small C15-C16 timber framed building altered in the C17 and later. Originally
it was a butcher's shop and then became incorporated into the Neptune Inn.

No 86 but much altered. 2 storeys and attics. The upper storey is jettied
and supported on curved brackets with the remains of a moulded capital and
shaft. There is an embattled wall plate. One window range, mullioned and
transomed windows with lattice leaded lights. (3 lights on the ground storey
and 6 lights on the 1st storey). At the rear a gallery wing extends to the
south with a jettied upper storey and exposed timber-framing on the ground
storey. Originally this gallery was part of No 90 but is now incorporated
in No 88, and forms a fine courtyard at the rear. The upper storey has a
long range of mullioned windows, the centre section of which is original
and the outer sections are restored, with moulded sills. The ground storey
has a doorway with a 4 centred arch with carved spandrels. Roof tiled,
with one gabled dormer on the front.
