GV II

Public house. 1903, by Heaton and Ralph of Wigan. Red stock brick in English garden wall bond (3:1), with dressings of orange terracotta and faience, graduated slate roofs. L-plan on corner site, plus a wing to the left. Free Renaissance style, in an arrestingly bold corner composition. EXTERIOR: the 3-storey 3-bay main range is symmetrical, with full-height canted bay windows under shaped gables flanking the entrance bay. The doorway has a surround with large attached Ionic columns, a moulded round-headed archway with alternating raised voussoirs, the keyblock breaking into a large panel bearing the name of the hotel with its date, supported by a swan-neck pediment; above the doorway is a single window on each floor, that at 2nd floor a keyed oculus. The flanking canted bays have windows with moulded architraves, those at ground floor with etched glazing lettered "News Room" and "Commercial Room" respectively, and those on the upper windows sashed (top leaves only with glazing bars, in the Queen Anne manner). Gable walls corbelled and much embellished. The wing to the left is a single-storey billiard room, with a canted bay window and a hipped roof. The right-hand return (to Rylands Street) is in 2 portions: 3 storeys and 2 windows, with a shaped gable to the left and a polygonal turret under a lead-clad cupola to the right, doorway and window detailing similar to the front; and 2 storeys and 2 windows, with a ground-floor bay. Roof with dentilled 4-light dormer. INTERIOR almost intact: elaborate central counter with reeded pilasters, decorative panels below and open above, with dividing columns and cornice; door surrounds and glazed partitions; fireplaces with overmantels and tiled surrounds; console cornices.
