Modern shopfront to ground floor, with 6-panel doors simply set on either side, the left-hand being wider and having a margined fanlight, the right-hand door having a plain fanlight; the facade above has pilasters framing the 3-window bays and a further blank 'bay' on each side: the centre at first floor level has a recessed blind panel with Soanian architrave flanked by angled bay/oriel windows with plain sashes: a simple band course divides off the second floor windows, which are plain sashes set in panelled architraves, and the whole is crowned by a classical cornice with low parapet, raised slightly over central bay, finishing with cast iron railings with an intertwined pattern. There is a rendered chimney stack to the right. Interior not seen. This property included for its group value in the High Street and The Borough.
