The building dates from the 18th century.

Historically the White Lion was listed as a Family & Commercial Hotel & Posting House. It may also be listed as an Inn and Excise Office.

Another address that has been listed for the inn is 11-12 New Market and it maybe that an earlier inn of the same name was located at that site.

It's shown on this old OS town plan of 1884.
