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.
