House, now public house. Probably mid C16; altered, restored and recently raised up some 30 feet to correspond with new street level of surrounding C20 redevelopment. Timber frame with stone slate roof. Three-bay linear plan. Three storeys and 3 structural bays, the 1st and 3rd gabled. Ground floor altered, with coupled C20 doorways to the centre flanked by C20 mullion-and-transom windows, a splayed doorway to the left corner, and a similar C20 window in the left return wall. The 1st floor has close studded framing with angle braces in the 1st bay, a small restored 4-light slightly bowed wooden mullioned window to this bay, and a continuous 17-light mullioned window running across almost the whole of the 2nd and 3rd bays (in slightly bowed sections of 6, 3, 2, 2 and 4 lights). The 1st floor has square small-panelled framing, and one 4-light window immediately below the wallplate in each bay, all likewise slightly bowed. The gables are jettied and filled with decorated lattice framing. The left return wall has framing on each floor like that at the front, a restored 7-light window to each floor, and a jettied gable like those at the front. Interior has exposed beams, etc. This building is the only surviving example of timber framing typical of the town in the C16 and C17 centuries. Forms group with Sinclairs Oyster Bar to the right.
