Welcome to the Village Inns


The Lion Inn

Lion Inn

Once the Guildhall or village meeting house, it was also used as a local court house. The original building, parts of which still survive, dates back to the 13th century and consisted of a great hall with a central fireplace.

Around the courtyard at the rear of the building were the granaries, cattle sheds and other outbuildings. It is likely that it was always used as a hostelry for travellers, later becoming an inn before 1600 when it was known as the Red Lion after the coat of Arms of the Jeffreyes family of Homme Castle.

News....   The Lion is now under new ownership and management.

The owner, John Fletcher, lives at Bury's Place opposite the Lion. Manager Mary & Clive Minshell are now serving good quality food in the newly refurbished restaurant area every day and also offering a choice of take-away meals Monday-Saturday. Well-appointed twin bedrooms with en suite bathrooms are also available for B&B.
