Appraisal

This public house retains its essential original form and character, enhanced by the well-proportioned pubfront. Render detailing is used to good effect to add textural and tonal interest to the fa├žade. Earlier structures existed on the site, but at the turn of the twentieth century the adjoining sites came under the same ownership and the present structure was built. The laneway at the south side formerly gave access to All Hallows College.
