House; originally 2 separate houses, later public house. Both C16 with later alterations.

Black glazed pantiles to the southern part, C20 plaintiles to the north; rear with old plaintiles. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and cellars; attic to part; complex plan, with 3 gabled extensions and a single-storey stable range at the rear. The 2 parts of the house are linked by a wide carriage entrance cut through both end frames. The southern part has an end chimney-stack and another chimney inserted into the front slope of the roof, both with plain red brick shafts. 2 window range, all sashes with a single vertical bar in flush cased frames. The shallow remains of the jetty are covered with a plain wooden fascia board. A central door with 4 sunk panels; doorcase with fluted pilasters and cornice. Double doors with diagonal boarding to the carriage entrance. The northern part (formerly No.45) has old render with comb pargeting. A 2-light small-paned casement window to the upper storey. A larger 2-light small-paned casement window to the ground storey with moulded architraves has a 4-panelled half-glazed door beside it in a plain wooden surround. A gabled dormer in the front roof-slope has plain bargeboards and a 2-light casement window with a single bar to lights. The jetty is supported by 2 solid brackets. INTERIOR: a fine range of cellars below both parts of the building include a barrel chute still in situ at the rear. Below the former No.45 the walls are lined with re-used stone blocks, including some circular pieces from former columns. The southern part of the interior is in 2 long bays which form a single large room on the ground storey; double

roll-mouldings to the main cross-beams; joists covered. On the upper storey, lambs' tongue stops to the ceiling beams and main posts with long tapered jowls. The remaining framing concealed. In one rear wing a filled-in original fireplace retains a timber lintel with double ogee-moulding. The northern half (formerly No.45) is in 2 bays, part of one bay being taken up by the carriage entrance, with its original ceiling cut away and raised, so that the upper room has a floor on 2 levels. Chamfered main cross-beams with lambs' tongue stops to the ground storey. On the upper storey, exposed studding and 2 trusses with long arched braces to the cambered tie-beams. There are only the main components to the end truss, which was evidently butted up against a pre-existent house. Along the front wall, a blocked 5-light original window with diamond mullions in situ and housings for another similar window. Roof-structures concealed.
