UPDATE - Liceencees of 11 years decided to move out during the Covid19 Pandemic. Building now up for sale by the Pub Company. Local PPPG group looking to get a ACV on the building due to historical importance.

The Leopard was once known as the 'Savoy of the Midlands' and records of its existence as a public house date back to 1765 when Josiah Wedgwood and James Brindley famously met there to discuss the opening of the Trent and Mersey Canal. Regular Ghost Hunts are held in The Leopard, and the upstairs corridors are said to be haunted.
