The right hand ground floor projection encompasses both right hand bays and has a round arched driveway with stone springers set low (a later alteration probably dating from the walling of the ground floor which was previously open).

The first floor has 5 sash windows of 3 x 4 panes with stone sills and flat-arched lintels with key stones. Cornice above with central slightly projecting broken pediment. Hipped roof. To the left is a driveway with a first floor link to the Swan Hotel (q.v.). Under this driveway on the right hand side are two large oval panels with moulded surrounds. Interior: The ground floor, which was an open market area has Tuscan pillars. The first floor room has some painted panelling and is now connected to the Swan Hotel (q.v.) and used as the dining room of the Cheshire Hunt.
