Early 19th century. 3-storey and attic, 3-bay classical tenement building with public house to ground. Tooled, coursed pink granite, ashlar to ground. Band course, eaves band. Round arched openings to ground, wider at outer bays. Piended canted dormers.

INTERIOR: largely altered (2006).
This is a well-detailed and simple classical tenement building which is thought to be one of the oldest buildings remaining in The Green. The round-arched openings are a feature of classical Aberdeen but are an unusual survivor for the area. The building is a significant addition to the streetscape.
The Green is one of the oldest areas in Aberdeen. It was part of the original entranceway into the city of Aberdeen and became celebrated from the sixteenth century as an open-air market venue. The area became increasingly built up in the nineteenth century with rising numbers of residents, traders and industries. With the formation and construction of Union Street to the North during the nineteenth century, the importance of The Green diminished. It was no longer part of the entranceway into the city and the tall buildings of Union Street had rear entrances at the level of The Green and their height overshadowed the area. This building is typical of the early nineteenth century buildings that were established here.
Local knowledge suggests that this is one of the oldest public houses in the city, and this present nineteenth century building may replace an earlier one on the same site.
