In Old English, probably Cheshire-based, style. A public house is shown on the 1st edition OS of 1870, but it may have been rebuilt since that time. It is shown in its current form in a photo of 1925.


Three-window, 2-storey, constructed of brick, the fa├žade half-timbered to the upper storey, under a red-tiled roof; brick end stacks set forward. The timber-framed and jettied upper storey is symmetrical, with ornamental box-panelling containing quadrant circle decoration. This storey has 3 jettied gables with curved struts, under which are large transomed 3-light casements with quarries. The brick ground floor has an inset doorway slightly R of centre, with brackets to jetty forming porch; boarded door with small-light in wooden surround, under an elliptical-arched brick head. Immediately to its L is a 2-light casement with quarries in a stone surround, the lights with decorative cusped heads. These are flanked by shallow 5-light bay windows supported on brackets, the casements and fanlights with quarries. Built as part of the public house, just above jetty level, is a plastered scene in relief of a ship on the sea. A conventional pub sign is attached by an iron bracket to the central gable. The E gable end has a doorway adjacent to the stack and a segmental-arched window to L with C20 glazing; a pair of narrow plain-glazed sashes offset to L at mid-level; W gable end adjoined by a further building; rear not seen.


Interior not seen at time of survey.
