Pitched slate roof, clay ridge tiles, stone verge coping, painted smooth rendered and red brick corbelled chimneystacks, profiled uPVC gutters on moulded corbels, uPVC downpipe. Painted smooth rendered ruled-and-lined walling, painted block-and-start quoins, slightly projecting plinth. Square-headed window openings, painted stone sills, uPVC casement windows. Painted timber pub front having engaged fluted Ionic columns supporting fascia board and denticulated projecting cornice, square-headed single-pane display windows on timber vertically-sheeted stall risers, painted moulded timber framed adverts, central square-headed recesses door opening creating porch of painted vertically panelled walls, tiled flooring, hardwood door with glazed panels, surmounted by plaque describing site history. Square-headed doorway east, painted timber door with six raised-and-fielded panels, plain-glazed overlight, stone threshold. Street-fronted.
This public house retains a particularly fine shopfront with fine carved details, which contrast with the unadorned elevation of the upper floors, and adds an artistic quality to the building. Said to be built on the site of Mortimer's Castle where Edward Bruce was crowned King of England, the site is of historic interest.
