Probably was three rooms, now two with bar extended along back wall to serve both.
Contemporary (circa 1970's) murals painted in both bar and pool room depicting pub regulars and the landlord and musicians and entertainers. Fairly primitive style but of future historic interest.
Mock Tudor central gable, leaded lights and square bays.
Bench seat inside the pool room, possibly left over from an old bottle and jug area.
