the deacon

A modern British tavern.


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, whose roots can be traced back to the 1700’s.  Through painstaking restoration of the bank’s traditional features and meticulous brand development, they have created a truly unique modern British tavern. 

With over 50 gins from around the world, international whiskeys, classic and new world wines, beers and ciders, they have a huge selection of drinks to choose from. Their very own Deacon Ale and Deacon Lager is served ice cold in one of their special scooners and is piped through impressive copper pipes that span the whole bar area.  Their precious beer is kept cool and safe behind bars in the original vault. Be sure to check it out when you visit. 

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 they have created a relaxed dining experience, where restored traditional features sit seamless alongside a contemporary glazed dining room.
