Appraisal

The unusual plan and façade of this building, with the chamfered corner and tall parapet, make a notable addition to the prominent corner site, opposite the town square. There is much of artistic interest to the façade, including the render quoins and surrounds, as well as the pubfront, which is of an unusual variety and adds context and decorative value to the site.
