Appraisal

This corner pub remains one of the few nineteenth-century buildings on Store Street and retains its original appearance to the upper floors. The modest scale, with its double gable standing adjacent to the stone railway bridge, forms an appealing composition and adds to the variety of building types lining the recently-formed plaza on Store Street.
