A man sits smoking a pipe in the foreground beside a tankard of beer and glass with a rake at his side. Chickens and chicks peck at food on the floor to the right. Immediately behind the tavern is a haystack and beyond is a view of the coast with ships and cliffs in view A flattering view of peace and prosperity in Great Britain under the reign of George IV, exaggerated for the purpose of contrast with the companion print, "Lawless liberty", showing the situation in France
