Inn, formerly three houses. Dated 1765 above main door, said to have been built for William Butts, the parish clerk; altered in C19. Large squared stone or rubble, slate roofs. A series of linked units: from left, a one-storey store with corrugated asbestos roof over rubble walls containing pair of plank garage doors; slightly stepped up a further store in large squared stone block with slate roof, but single course of stone slate at eaves, coped verge to left. A plank door, left, and 2-light casement, right. Then a two-storey lofty section containing the former Court Leet meeting room in coursed rubble with flush quoins and lintols, slate roof; two large 12-pane sashes above a single 12-pane, and to the right a pair of C20 glazed doors under a rectilinear transom light. The back of this part has a small and a larger 12-pane sash above a 4-panel door. Brick stack to left gable. The main building in large dressed squared stone block with slate roof; low two storeys with attic, projecting near-central porch and deep back wing; 3 windows width, to the left a small 2-light casement with glazing bars, then two large 12-pane mid C19 sashes above a small 2-light casement and a 3-light chamfered stone-mullioned small-pane casement and a 20-pane wide sash in a flush plat band. To the left a plank door, and near centre a gabled stone porch with side lights covering a ledged and framed C18 door on early strap hinges: above this a cambered lintel and a stone inscribed "B W*G" over "1765" in a patterned border. Left of centre a stone ridge stack with blocking course above capping, and to right a late C19 brick stack. Back has a deep gabled wing which includes a small single stair light, and a brick stack. The mullioned window led the RCHM to suggest that the building has C17 origins. (Royal Commission on Historical Monuments: Dorset: London: 1970-: 256).
