GV II

Attached public house. 1867. By Henry Masters. Render with painted limestone dressings, roof not visible. Double-depth plan. Eclectic mid Victorian style. 3 storeys and cellar; 4-window range. An ornate, symmetrical front has a ground floor with a full-width, foliate impost band with carved foliage, and a dentil fascia cornice; the sides of the fascia have consoles with acroteria below banded pilaster strips to a coved coping. 2:1:2 semicircular-arched ground-floor windows, the outer ones set above segmental-arched basement windows with moulded heads, a plinth to a ground-floor column between, and archivolts with raised balls and a label; the middle window is set in a raised section with banded sides, and slender colonnettes set in coved reveals. Outer doorways have moulded segmental heads to 5-panel doors. Paired upper windows have carved imposts and a central column as the ground floor, with stilted segmental-arched heads and segmental pediments on the first-floor, and with curved corners to the second-floor lintels and dentil cornices. In the middle on the ground floor is a relief of an elephant set in an oval stapwork panel, with curved consoles and panel beneath. INTERIOR: altered. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: basement windows have attached iron segmental-arched railings with finials. A very fine example of a vigorous mid-Victorian public house front. (Mowl T: Bristol, The Last Age of the Merchant Princes: Bristol: 1991-: 39).
