The old inn. Inn, now used as a restaurant. Mid or late c17; refurbished rearranged and enlarged in the mid c19. The older part is plastered cob on stone rubble footings, the mid c19 work is plastered stone rubble; stone rubble stacks topped with c19 and c20 brick; slate roof (originally thatch).
Plan and development: double depth plan house facing south. There is a front and back room either side of a staggered through passage. The principal rooms are those on the front, service rooms to rear. Now the right room has been knocked through to the passage. Stair at right angles to the passage to rear of the front left room. The front section is the c17, part, the rear rooms were added in the late c19. The front right room has a gable-end stack, the room behind a rear lateral stack and the front left room has an axial stack, once a lateral stack, in the c17 rear wall.2 storeys. Exterior: 3-window front of 16-pane sashes, some are horned replacements. The symmetry is upset because the front doorway is set right of centre. It contains a c19 part-glazed panelled door with a plain stucco architrave and an 8-pane sash side light to left of it. The roof is gable-ended and pitches over the original front section and the rear pitch carried down over the added rear rooms. The right end wall contains more 16-pane sashes and one horned 20-pane sash.
Interior: is mainly the result of the late c19 refurbishment although some c17 work is exposed. No c17 crossbeams are exposed. The front right room fireplace is granite with a soffit-chamfered oak lintel. The left front room fireplace is also granite. Its lintel is a reused chamfered and scroll-stopped oak timber and there is the blocking of a large side oven here. The 3-bay roof over the front section is carried on c17 a-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars.
