The White Lion Inn, Hope

The White Lion Inn is located in the heart of Hope a small village just outside Wrexham in north east Wales.

An old rectory is thought to have been on the site originally and a date stone on the inn shows 1828.  A small building called a bier house was attached to the inn in which the horse drawn hearse was housed.

From the late 1850 – 80s Mary Langford was the landlady and in keeping with the times she was also a farmer with 30 acres of land.

By 1903 travellers were able to stay at the inn which had 2 bedrooms and stabling for 2 horses.  A year later the Licensing Committee charged the landlord, Alfred Hill, for selling underproof whisky.  During this time F.W. Soames and Co. of Wrexham supplied the beer. 

Price Griffiths was the landlord in 1953 and a public bowling green was located behind the White Lion.
