A well-appointed middle-size building distinguished in the street scene on account of the vertical emphasis of the massing: the building appears to rise above the flanking ranges in the terrace. Finely detailed in a Classical manner the various rendered accents throughout contribute positively to the architectural quality of the composition while an attractive pubfront of artistic design merit displaying good quality craftsmanship further improves the appeal of the site at street level. Having been well maintained the building makes a positive impression in an historic setting while the survival of an early commercial interior further enhances the importance of the site in the architectural heritage of Thomastown.
