About the Pub

Formerly the Old Lion Tap, this is a significant Grade I Listed building. Built in the 15th century, it was first recorded as an inn in 1868 though it had previously functioned as a brew house. It closed as a pub in 1925 before re-emerging in 1990 as the Lion & Tap. A substantial restoration in Oct 2012 led to its current luxurious state. Spot the celebrity likenesses in the paintings!

The main bar has three distinct areas: the bar counter area, a snug-type lounge to the left of the entrance, and a dining area at a slightly lower level.

The pub was extended to the right in 2021 to include a room on Wyle Cop.

Taken over by Joule's June 2022.

Historic Interest

Famously Henry VII (Henry Tudor) and his troops stayed in the building on the way to the battle of Bosworth. Reputedly the only bar in town in a Grade 1 listed building.
