|NAME||OLD RED HORSE|
|ALTERNATIVE NAMES||OLD RED HOUSE|
|ALTERNATIVE ADDRESSES||BARRAS HEATH, STOKE, STOKE ALLOTMENTS, SOWE|
I do not know where this name came from. In the early years of the twentieth century, Barras Green was an isolated hamlet consisting of the Red Horse Inn and a few cottages. At that time the pub had a football team called 'Stoke Athletic' and the changing room was the pub. From 1845 to 1868 this was called the OLD RED HOUSE in the directories. Was this a mistake?
In 1982 it was said the pub 'was once a typical Watney pub, now redecorated in any colour but red'.
