Ground floor retains what is probably a mid-late C19 public house front, articulated by heavy panelled pilasters, with continuous moulded fascia, and entrance across the corner. Berriew Street elevation of 3 bays, with paired round headed windows to the right of the corner doorway, then narrower round-arched windows. Return elevation to Severn Street has single bay with triple round-arched windows, and round-headed 2-pane sash window to the left. Upper windows are 4-pane sashes with flat arched heads, and continuous, bracketed sill band to second floor.
