The building is on land previously known to house the Boughton Cold Store, as it was a supply depot during the Second World War. The Boughton Cold Store was built to store perishable goods like butter, cheese and margarine. These stores were built close to the railway line, to make the loading and unloading of supplies easy for the Ministry of Food. Converted in 1998, this large building is reached through a frontal porch which leads straight into the flag-stoned bar area. All around there are many dining areas in a mixture of tastes, with tiles and carpeted floors. The ceilings have low wooden beams, while some areas have wooden panelling. There are several fireplaces, with one hearth is situated in the wall between two of the areas. Outside to the front is an extensive lawned garden with many tables and chairs for clement weather. Some of these also have umbrellas.
