The hotel is part of an early C18 coaching inn, originally with a courtyard plan, and galleried timber-framed rear wings of earlier dates. In c.1925 the south facade of the west wing was considerably altered, and a two storey bay window added to the south gable of the street range. C18 street facade; red brick, plain tile roofs. Eight bays, three storeys, with plain brick parapet and stone copings, brick bands between floors. Original entry to south replaced by a window and other blocked windows opened in early C20. Five flush framed hung sash windows with glazing bars in gauged, flat brick arches to around floor. Coach entrance to north with eliptical arch of gauged bricks and key stone. Eight first floor, and five second floor windows with three blind windows, all similar to ground floor, though some are replacements. Large wrought iron inn-sign bracket over archway. Interior details largely C19, some C18 doors. Timber-frame of rear south wing exposed at first floor. North facing gallery has C19 windows and a wooden shuttered window reputed to have been used by Dick Turpin.
