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!

Three drinking areas: the bar area, a snug-type lounge to the left of the entrance, and a dining area at a slightly lower level. Once owned by local brewery Trouncers of Coleham. The house beer has come from a number of different breweries over the years, latterly Stonehouse. Currently, Spring2019, it is from Greene King and badged as a mystery beer.

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.
