Timber verandah linking these bays with a range of rectangular windows and a timber balustrade over, some bays of which have vertical railing, others diagonal members. In the centre of the first floor a 2-light multi-paned window under a plain gable; either side two 2/2 casements beneath hipped gables; all these windows break through the eaves line. Small cupola centrally placed on the roof ridge Timber rail between the building and the bowling green.
INTERIOR: Public bar with two-thirds height timber panelling with reeded detail. Bar counter moved and altered late C20. Right hand front bar is the former Smoking Room.

Within the verandah a serving hatch for service to the bowling green area.
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.
