The pub is found in Ysceifiog, Denbighshire, CH8 8NJ.

This two-storey late Georgian village pub with four small rooms is a splendid survivor being little altered since the 1930s. The slate-floored drinking lobby has a tiny hatch in the leaded screen around the servery, which would have also been the off-sales, and occasionally customers can be seen drinking here. A sliding door leads to the tiny front bar, with an old counter, old panelling on the window side, a 1930s tiled fireplace with a coal fire and bare bench seating, including some attached to the front of the counter. At the rear the lounge is served from a bar more like a hatch with its sliding window, now kept permanently open. This room retains fixed seating dating from the 1930s and a post-war fireplace. To the front right is the small snug with a cast-iron fireplace. Look for the number of the doors, a requirement of H M Customs and Excise to denote all the rooms in a public house used for the storage or sale of alcohol. This pub is on CAMRA's National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors Part One.rnrn
