Corner-sited end-of-terrace two-bay three-storey house, built c.1760, having two-bay two-storey with dormer attic return to rear. Now also in use as restaurant. Pitched artificial slate roof with rendered chimneystack and cast-iron rainwater goods. Rendered walls with chamfered corner to south-west. Square-headed openings with replacement uPVC windows. Bow fronted timber shopfront inserted to ground floor, comprising multiple pane fixed display windows set over rendered stall risers, flanking timber glazed door and overlight, with fascia and moulded cornice above.
Set on a corner site, this building occupies a prominent position in the town. Though altered by the insertion of uPVC windows, this building's steeply pitched roof is characteristic of eighteenth century construction. The attractive bow fronted shopfront is an early nineteenth century insertion and is a charming addition to the streetscape. The building forms part of a significant core with the adjoining buildings and the other historic buildings in the surrounding area.
