The building forms a section of shops and offices at Northgate Street, with the contrast between black and white colors clearly defined.

On the ground floor it has a modern shop front behind an arcade. The shop premises was built in 1900 for J. F. Denson and Sons and was designed by the local architect John Douglas.

In the upper storey there are decorated panels, above which are two seven-light bowed oriel windows, each with further windows on each side, forming a row of continuous glazing. The gable is jettied and contains two rows of quatrefoil panels and a carved bargeboard. Internally, the cellars consist of sandstone medieval undercrofts.
