GV II

Public house and shop. Reputed to have been rebuilt in 1636, though the present building owes much of its form to an early C20 remodelling. Mock timber over a genuine timber frame partially visible to rear, with slate roof. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, 4-window range, with gabled wings to each side and central main range. Full height canted bay windows in right-hand gable; a canted oriel window in left hand gable with doorway alongside and 2-light mullioned and transomed window above. Central range has round-arched doorway to right, and doorway with 3-light window under continuous fascia to left. Segmentally arched entry to yard to left. Two 2-light casement windows above. Applied framing and leaded windows all apparently date from early C20 remodelling, although the doorway, and the small shop front with door and window in the central range appear to be early C19; the canted bay windows in the right-hand gable also pre-date the remodelling. Ornamental heads to rainwater goods. Side wall stack in right-hand wing, axial stack to left. INTERIOR: retains elements of an early plan with a division into small rooms, and there is some fitted bar furniture.
