Large traditional pub built in the 18th century with a beamed ceiling supported on brick pillars. There is a single large rectangular room with the bar running along its length. Alcove seating bays are around the perimeter with a brick fireplace at one end. Historical pictures of the locality decorate the walls. Outside at the front of the pub there are plenty of tables with large parasols. Harley Davidson, BAC Phantoms, Southend Motor Cycle Club and a Steam Engine Club meet here regularly.
