The trade area is subdivided into three interconnecting spaces: the main bar, bar seating area and dining area. The whole area caters for c. 60 covers and is served by a central wooden servery. There are male and female WCs located at opposite ends of the trade space.
The back of house includes a kitchen with commercial extraction, ancillary store room with walk-in chiller, wash room, staff WC and the cellar, which is at ground floor level.
On the first floor there is private accommodation comprising 2 double bedrooms, living room, 3pc bathroom, office, and landing with kitchenette.
At the front, the building is set back behind a brook and dedicated parking for around 8 vehicles. At the rear, there is a trade garden comprising a lawn area, patio with smoking solution and timber decking area, the whole of which could cater for c. 64 covers. There is a tarmac driveway dividing the lawn area and rear of the public house, which is accessed via double gates and dropped curb from Horse and Gate Street.
