On the description given by George Bown Millet in 1883, for the Old Market House, he describes the main door of the Market House having been opposite The Golden Lion. The medallion which was on the wall over that main door was re-fixed to its present position on the building which now contains Lloyds Bank. The marble sculpture dates from 1803. The Golden Lion Hotel/Inn appears first in 1823, George Hemmings, stated as 34 Market Place. In 1887 it closed and a new premises built in Causewayhead, it seems that the building was not completed immediately as it opened in upper Causewayhead, then was completed 1891. It continued trading until it was closed in 1927. Just down the street was The Duke of Cumberland. That opened in 1822. In 1851 William Rodda was landlord.
