Former public house, now shop. Late C18 with the remains of C15 undercroft. Red brick
with white brick dressing to carriage arch, roof not visible. 3 storeys, 3 bays with a
carriage entry beneath a three-centred arch at the right-hand side. Later shop front
with central recessed door. Sash windows to upper floors with flat, rubbed brick arches
to the openings. Paired cornice brackets. Extending beneath the entire length of the
building is a brick built undercroft which has been partly destroyed by the C18
rebuilding. To the rear, at the east end, is a side chamber with a pointed barrel-vault
profile and opposite is the remains of the corner vaulting pier. On the front wall is an
arch representing either wall arcading or another side chamber formerly extending beneath
the street. The building is listed because of the undercroft which forms part of an
important group within the city walls.
