Public house. c1845-50. Built for Calverts the brewers. Brown stock brick with stucco ground storey and dressings. Slate roof. Italianate style. EXTERIOR: square composition of 3 storeys on all sides, with strong bracketed cornice and parapet and heavy quoins at angles. Fronts towards Gloucester Avenue and Princess Road with stuccoed facade and windows to bar along ground storey, probably later C19 and incorporating projecting iron light fixtures in the form of dragons left and right of entrances; upper portions with 3 windows with stucco surrounds and keystones on each of 2 storeys, the centre windows at first-floor level having swept sides and pediments. The 2 rear facades less symmetrical, with external chimneybreasts protruding and breaking through parapets. INTERIOR: the bar interiors have lost all fittings of special interest save for their cornices, but the exterior makes for a good example of an early Victorian public house. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: high stuccoed wall continues along Princess Road in front of yard.
