Description

Terraced seven-bay two-storey public house, built c. 1860. Pitched slate roof with cast-iron rainwater goods. Rendered walls with bracketed cornice and string course between ground and first floors.

Timber sash and timber casement windows to ground floor. Timber panelled doors.

Appraisal

Set on a narrow laneway, leading to the Old English Market, this building is an interesting addition to the architectural heritage of the city. Though it is difficult to see in this confined location, it retains many interesting features and materials, such as the timber sash windows and decorative render detail. The render detail enlivens and articulates the ground floor, and was clearly executed by skilled craftsmen.
