Lunch at the Lion Inn

30th Aug 2016

We spent the afternoon of 10 August at The Lion Inn in the village of Boreham. Known historically as The “Red Lion”, it was built in the reign of Henry V11 in 1495 and was originally a farmhouse. In 1578, a farmer purchased it and was granted a licence to sell ales and ciders. The Licence was eventually extended to include gin and other spirits.

Over the years, the Inn has been extended sympathetically and still contains many of its original features. The popularity of the venue and its lovely ambience made it a great choice for lunch.  Thus It was here in one of the splendid rooms of The Lion Inn that 26 Lady Taverners and friends gathered for lunch , which in the words of one of our members, “Was excellent and the service so polite and efficient”. We all had a really good time.

The Raffle raised a fantastic sum of £310. Well done everyone and thank you for your support.
