Thatched, two-storey Inn, of medieval origins, comprising a five windowed range aligned on an E/W axis. Elevations of coursed limestone rubble with two axial rubble stacks. thatched roof with two eyebrows on front elevation, the E end hipped.

At the rear there are various, single storey, modern addition and one to the W end constructed in matching stonework and slate, tiled and flat roofs.

Entered via unchamfered, two-centred doorway on front elevation into outer room which retains the opposed doorway on the N side. Pennant flagged floor.

Plain chamfered, two centred doorway on E side leads to hall cell. W cell has no exposed features and appears to be of C19 construction. Central hall cell has substantial C16 fire at W end with projecting, plain chamfered timber bressumer, carried on timber corbels. To the N side of the fire, the lateral entry stone stairs remain, within an outshut, with cross slab roof. The hall cell retains ceiling beams of heavy section, the girders having broad chamfers and hollow stops with fillet, whilst the joists are also broadly chamfered with diagonal stops. The later E cell retains no exposed features of interest.
