Planning Application 125024/LO/2019 | Listed Building Consent for internal alterations, room sub-division and refurbishment of interior and exterior. Validated 27/1/2020. Closed 2/3/2012. History: Conversion work was begun mid-2019, and the city council were aware of work. Sadly, it appears that it will never to return to pub use again. It is Grade II listed (as of 31/2/2012) and is on CAMRA's Heritage Pubs, National Inventory which was hoped would preclude it from any hasty action. Internally it was quite a small multi-roomed house, the original floor-plan had been retained throughout. A remarkable feature of most rooms were the green and gold decorated celings with elaborate diamond-shaped plasterwork relief. Fine woodwork was displayed around the bar, the vestibule, and each room. All rooms had original doors, and fixed seating, in a comforting red hue. Originally sold cask Tetley Mild, Bitter, and Ind Coope Burton Ale.
