Pub manager David Jenkins is pictured at The Percy Shaw, in Halifax.

The new pub is located in Broad Street Plaza – a major new development for the West Yorkshire town.

Its name refers to Halifax-born Percy Shaw, who, in 1934, invented the reflecting roadstud, known as the cat’s eye. The pub’s name was chosen by readers of the Halifax Courier newspaper, following a request from Wetherspoon for suitable names.

The pub has a pavement-café-style area to the front, where smoking is permitted, in a designated area.

There is also a feature wall piece, reflecting the cat’s eyes, to represent the inventor Percy Shaw, as well as a sculpture based on the history of the cloth trade in the area.
