Comments:

The Retreat's charming and cosy interior made it an ideal choice as 'the local' for the filming of the Crawford Productions TV series The Sullivans, filmed in the late 1970s but set during World War Two. The two-storey exterior with a semi-circular corner turret presents a prominent and distinctive appearance on its corner site. The building shows Arts and Crafts influence.
