The present building appears to date from the early C19 but may be a development of an earlier inn of the same name on this site. The Goat was probably the most important hostelry in the town during the C18 and C19. It was both a coaching inn and used by carriers. At one time it served as a meeting place for Courts Leet.


Painted brickwork in Flemish bond. Slate roof, red-brick chimney at W end. Two storeys with attic and cellar. Three window range with central doorway to High Street. Lean-to extension at west end. Modern extensions to rear. Hornless sash windows; tripartite windows flank the doorway on ground and first floor, with 16 panes. Window above doorway is a 12-pane sash. All openings have segmental brick arched heads. Attic storey; dormers have 16-pane sash windows with hipped roofs. Dentilled eaves cornice. Modern door, with overlight above. Portico porch; 2 columns with moulded capitals, entablature with frieze. Iron railings fixed to cobbles in front of windows, formerly for tethering horses.


Central staircase opposite doorway. Three bays; narrow, central stair hall, with wider side bays. These probably originally divided into two rooms. Large fireplace at west end. Interior much altered.
