Archetypical small unspoilt back-street Victorian local hidden away amongst terraced housing. In the same family since 1939 it has three small rooms and is barely altered. In northern industrial towns and cities there were hundreds of pubs like this at one time but there now are only a handful still remaining. A passageway runs from the front door to the living quarters at the rear. On the left side is a partly glazed partition wall and two small rooms opposite the rear room is the off-sales hatch with an intact rising sash window and a Formica top from the 1960s. On the front left is the small lounge with an old baffle by the door, original fixed seating all around the room, a classic 1950/60s tiled fireplace with a gas fire in front, lots of Britannia tables and an etched window with the word 'Room', the Smoke having been lost. At the rear left is the games room with a modern tiled floor, original fixed seating with leatherette covering from the 1960s, and another classic 1950/60s tiled fireplace with a Canon Gas Miser fire. The door has a button on which the number has been painted over.
