The sixteenth and last public house built before the Second World War under the Carlisle and District State Management Scheme and, with its carefully detailed architecture and provision for bowling, expressing the ideals of civilised public house culture that the Scheme sought to impart. It was the last public house in which Harry Redfern, the Scheme's architect, was involved and it was therefore named after him."
