Note the circular loft ventilators, dentil moldings and rusticated corners, with a local ironstone plinth. Additions were made to the rear of the building in 2008.
Downstairs, numerous shops have come and gone over the years. Upstairs has often hosted clubs (Tin Roof Blues Bar, Upstairs on Main, Davanna Wine Bar etc.).
