There are 4 handpumps in each bar, stocking Harvey's full range of beers with usually also one real draught cider. Two bare-boarded bars are separated by an off sales area. The pub serves a choice of excellent food. An interesting collection of prints and photographs adorns the traditional interior, including many theatre and music hall-related items.

The long-term tenant licensees, Frank and John, retired in January 2019 after twenty years here, after which Harvey's elected to make it a company managed house.
