Popular and imposing Victorian corner pub. Extensively retained period woodwork together with lots of cut and etched glass complimenting the stucco ceiling and island bar. Listed on CAMRA's National Inventory of historic pub interiors for its surviving interesting Victorian fittings.

Features to admire include the entrance floor mosaic proclaiming "Washington Hotel and Billiards", the wall tiling and the lovely painted mirrors towards the rear with their pictures of flaura and fauna. There is a separate meeting room/bar downstairs, capacity 60. Enter through a door that doubles as a bookcase.
