Licensee Introduction

Friendly village pub. There was a beerhouse listed in Lighthorne at least as far back as 1849 when it was run by Phoebe Lattimer; in 1874 William Lattimer is listed but as a victualer and maltster. It was not until 1900 that first reference to the Antelope is found run by James Henry. The Antelope is a fine building made of the local White Lias limestone with parts of the pub dating back to the sixteenth century. It has obviously grown over the years. A fine old farmhouse probably dating from the 18th century forms the main body at the front of the pub with modern extensions at the sides; there is a prominent wishing well. The pub itself consists of a popular large bar area at the front, a small cosy lounge with a separate restaurant at the rear.
