See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
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 coffee lounge on Wyle Cop.
Taken over by Joule's June 2022.
