The accommodation comprised :

Basement - beer cellar; store; wash kitchen.

Ground - refreshment rooms (including vaults, lounge, bar lounge, smoke room); w.c.s; shop premises.

First Floor - ling apartments; offices; Lodge Room.

Second Floor - 5 bedrooms; bathroom; W.C.

Modernisation of the interiors included the greater provision of w.c.s ; and a central bar serving more than one space from which the whole house could be surveyed.

There was extensive accommodation on the first floor for the landlord.

The five rooms on the second floor were for paying guests.
