View of a curved linoleum-topped bar faced with mottled tiles laid in a stepped pattern. The room has partially tiled walls, a linoleum and tile floor, decorative cornices and faceted lights hanging from the ceiling. On the wall above the shelves is a victory crest and a clock. Two large textiles hang on a wall in the background. The Clarendon Hotel was purchased by Tooth & Company in September 1934 and sold in August 1985. On completion of rebuilding in January 1943 the hotel was a three storeyed brick structure with a fully tiled ground floor exterior and an asbestos and malthoid roof. The architectural style is known as P. & O. Ship Style because of its similarities to ocean liner forms.
