Two 6/6 horned sashes either side of the central doorway. 4 first-floor 6/6 horned sashes separated by a C20 panel inscribed: `The Dukes Head Hotel'. Immediately over carriage arch is a square stone plaque with a segmental shouldered head with the date 1609 and initials S over R I. Gabled roof with 4 C20 dormers fitted with 6/6 horned sashes. Internal gable-end stacks north and south. In the yard to the rear is a timber crown-post roof truss attached to a wall: late C14, with passing braces, from a former Guildhall on the site.
