History

Late C18 to early C19 town house of unusually architectural character, the facade fully rusticated and with full-height attic storey. Building shown on this site on 1844 tithe map. The house was sold in 1879 having been the house of Mr Price and then Mr James Evans, but is said to have been the Great Western Hotel from before 1878 until 1919-20, and then Walter L Williams solicitors' office. A photograph of c1906 shows a large hanging lamp on wrought iron curved brackets over entry. In use as a restaurant, Number 3 Main Street, since late C20.

Shallow cellar light beneath each ground floor window. Eight-panelled double door with plain fanlight. All windows with rusticated voussoirs and keystones. Fine doorcase with open pediment on 3/4 Ionic columns with odd scroll volutes. Panelled reveals. Left end wall has C20 dry-dash cladding and long stair light with C20 glazing.
