A little-altered and typically detailed example of a mid-C19 pub and former hotel in an industrial quarter of central Sheffield, and which provided leisure and refreshment for working men and accommodation for travellers before the rise of modern hotels. The exterior and plan are largely unaltered apart from the addition of a mid-C20 toilet block, and the building continues to forms an important component of a working industrial environment.
