Late C18 or early C19 and first shown on the 1810 town plan. The present front was probably completed in 1883 with the adjoining No 11 (which is dated). It was occupied by Morgan Lloyd, wine and spirit merchant, by 1895.


A 3-storey 3-bay public house forming part of a terrace. Painted pebble-dashed walls, a replaced slate roof with added skylights, and brick end stacks. In the lower storey are fluted pilasters to the ends and framing a window R of centre, but their corresponding fascia has been replaced. Two asymmetrically placed 12-pane sash windows have moulded surrounds. A doorway L of centre has a replaced door and plain overlight. A doorway to the R has replaced double doors and plain overlight. In the middle and upper storeys the windows have eared and shouldered architraves, which are blind to the centre but otherwise have 4-pane windows, (presumably replacing sashes) larger in the middle storey. An arcaded frieze between lintels in the upper storey is below bracketed eaves, and continues across No 11.


Altered interior.
