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.
