Public House. Dated 1707, but with considerably earlier core. Rendered over
ironstone rubble, with Welsh slate roof. 2 storeyed. Long facade to street
with 2 renewed 3-light casement windows to left of doorway, a small 2-light
window to its right and another 3-light casement beyond, then a long section
of blank wall and an outbuilding beyond it with door and blocked window. 5
2-light casement windows to first floor with date stone beneath small hoodmould
between the right hand two, carrying initials A over T.B. Gable and axial

Inside, various timber posts, one chamfered, suggests an earlier timber framed
origin for the building, and there is the stump of a possible cut-off cruck
blade. Early Cl7 staircase with moulded handrail and simple newels with rough
finials. Inglenook fireplace with late C16 or early Cl7 carved wood cornice
above with interlace pattern which is repeated along one of the beams, suggesting
the position of the earlier cross wall. Panelled ceiling with ornately moulded
wood beams of similar date.
