Simpson's Tavern has 2 storeyed wing along west side of court with short return over passage at far end. Plain, painted brick. Shop front similar to Castle Court but incorporating shallow bow windows etc and probably in part of late C18/early C19 date. Some later C19 decorated glass and gas lamp on cast iron bracket.
