The North front is a 3-storeyed timber-framed front with an overhang remaining above a modern shop front. There are cellars and the front has a moulded cornice and a parapet. In the lst and 2nd floors are 3 sash windows. On the West side of the passage way on the East of the house, which leads to the Chequers Inn, is some original C15 studding with the remains of two original timber doorways one with roses on the lintel; there are some original moulded beams on the lintel over the way. The Chequers Inn forms the back of No 132 and consists of a 3-storeyed range of ancient date facing East and now covered with modern iron balcony and external staircase; at its North end and in the 2nd floor is an original C17 3-light Venetian window in a restored wood frame and above this, to the West, shows a steep-pitched gable. To the South of this range is a C17 2-storeyed roughcast extension but the cellars are probably older. A range (possibly C17 in origin) on the East side of the yard, being the kitchen of the inn, consists of 2-storeyed coursed rubble with a Welsh slate hipped roof, in the South of which is a. gabled attic dormer; in the ground floor are modern windows but those in the lst floor appear to be C18.

Probably built by Alderman Richard Kent early in C16 when it was known as Kent's Hall. (Oxford History Society XXXIX. 172-3 XV, l50).
