Inn. Mid C19, possibly incorporating some earlier fabric. Ashlar, slate roofs. A lofty symmetrical frontage set flush with adjoining buildings, and having two deep gabled wings to back, cutting into ground slope. Two storeys and attic, 3-windowed. Three gabled dormers immediately above moulded stone cornice, small plain sashes under raised copings on kneelers. At first floor a bold oriel to flat roof and on shaped wooden brackets, large plate glass sasshes, moulded cornice, and moulded base under skirt; each side a good 12-pane sash in moulded stone architrave and cill band. Ground floor has large nearly square openings with plate glass under 2-pane upper light, in moulded stone surround with small keystone. Central panelled C19 door in moulded architrave under plain transom light, on 2 stone steps. Plinth, band above door height, entablature and blocking course. To each gable a large stone stack with capping, coped verges; the roof surface projects boldly between and at ends of dormers. The layout and proportions suggest a late C18 front which has been modified and raised.
