Painted local stone rubble with rendered gable ends. Asbestos slate roof with gabled ends. Gable end stacks with tapered shafts with slate weathering.

The internal plan of the ground floor of the 'house' has been entirely altered in the C20 to form bars to the public house and there is a C20 3-storey extension along the back of the building.
Exterior: 2 storeys over 2 storeys of cellars. The road front is 2 storeys, symmetrical 4-window range with early to mid C19 16-pane sashes with segmented brick arches and slate sills. The first floor right hand window is now a 4- pane sash. The walls on either side of the ground floor windows are rebated to take the boarded window shutters. 2 doorways, a C19 6-panel door to left and right of centre, the lower panels flush, both have slated canopies, the right hand canopy is a replacement. Single storey lean-to outshut at the left hand end.
C20 extensions across the back, stone ruble to the left and rendered to the right where the lower ground storey is open showing the back wall of the original building with its old cellar doorway.
Interior: Only the ground floor was inspected; its plan has been entirely rearranged to form public house bars and a restaurant.
