Single-storey, double-fronted shop with small store-room wing to rear. Symmetrical facade has central, glazed double door beneath overlight bearing name 'Vernons'. Splayed door reveals and flanking shop fronts are fully-glazed above tiled panels with words 'MEAT PURVEYORS'. End pilasters have geometrical panels and twin consoles over which a continuous cornice breaks forward (frieze covered by later signboard). Parapet has end dies with rams' heads in relief and central segmental pediment with tympanum having relief bull's head in roundel flanked by spandrels with floral motifs. Left return: panelled double-door on left has 4-pane overlight; brick gable wall with corbelled verge and apex finial.

Interior: fully tiled with brown skirting, dado rail and with frieze panel of swags and ribbons. Original meat-hanging rails. Opposite the front door is a cash office and to its left is a painted-tile panel in architrave which depicts cattle in a rural scene; to the right is a similar scene with sheep. Left side of shop has 2 matching scenes with pigs and the right side has an elongated panel with sheep flanked by panels with cattle. The painted panels are signed 'S Bagshaw 1928'. Rare unaltered survival.
