The fireplace is lost but the skirtings and windows are intact: one, at right hand end of room, has been restored to a high standard. To right of front bar, former 'smoke room', now opened out but with original cornices and most of the skirtings. Beyond front bar, rear room partially opened out, with windows to rear, two of which are etched glass sash windows, and original cornices and skirtings. Former serving hatch to this room has been replaced with an extension to the bar using original skirting from the smoke room and matching in style the original bars. Passage to right has green tiled walls up to dado rail, and on the right a half-glazed door and side screen with stained glass overlight, leading to upper floors. The first floor retains much of its original layout with three principal rooms along the front, with two rooms and bathroom to the rear. Fireplaces are lost or replaced, but cornices and skirtings are intact. Top floor not accessed.
There were previous "Cutlers' Arms" on the site before the current building, the first appearing in a Directory of 1825. The pub was rebuilt in 1866, when it became a Stones tied house. The 1907 rebuilding was part of a general rebuilding in Westgate to provide a broader highway into the town to relieve traffic congestion.
