Very old village inn with a superb garden and a historic interior. A lively community local acting as a base for many clubs with an impressive array of trophies above the bar. The internal features of interest date from late Victorian times: A small intact vestibule entrance with quarry tiled floor leads to a largish public bar. To the left of the entrance, there is a lower level small room has a wood block floor, panelling to two-thirds height with wall benches attached. Sitting on the Victorian bar counter are three (non-operational) brass handpumps inscribed "Nathaniel George Wilcocks City Inn Works Bath" and said to date from 1887. Look for the old gas fitting on the right of the bar back. There is a large original stone fireplace and two fine lengths of old bench seating - a curved one around the bay window of a style like an old settle but much wider and a straight section that forms a passage on the rear left to the ladies’ upstairs and the outside gents’ under cover. A small pool room at the front right has a parquet floor and hatch for service.
