A modern
British Tavern

The History

The History

Located in the main square in the heart of Lytham, The Deacon takes pride of place in the old RBS bank. Originally the Williams Deacon Bank, who's roots can be traced back to the 1700’s, it was an integral part of Lytham’s history and housed in a very distinctive building, so we were determined to preserve the memory of this historic bank. Through painstaking restoration of the bank’s traditional features and meticulous brand development, we believe we have created a truly unique modern British tavern. The team have worked tirelessly to deliver this project and both old and new staff are really excited about welcoming everyone through our doors.

The Bar

The Bar

With over 50 gins from around the world, international whiskeys, classic and new world wines, beers and ciders, we have a huge selection of drinks to choose from. Including our very own Deacon Ale and Deacon Lager served ice cold in one of our special scooners. Piped through our impressive copper pipes that span the whole bar area, our precious beer is kept cool and safe behind bars in the original vault. Be sure to check it out when you visit. With craft ales and tasty tonics, you’ll be sure to find a new (or old) favourite. With extensive knowledge of our impressive gin collection, be sure to ask the staff about our perfect serves.

The food

The food

With a huge selection of drinks on offer we are very proud of our bar, but our main focus here is on the food. We wanted to create a diverse menu, in a unique setting, and we’re really pleased with the results. The menu offers everything from small plates, salads, sandwiches and Sunday roasts, whilst at the same time combining classic pub favourites like shepherd’s pie and fish and chips, with modern dishes like brisket bon bons and crispy chilli squid. In The Deacon we have created a relaxed dining experience, where restored traditional features sit seamless alongside a contemporary glazed dining room.
