Located on the main High Street in the heart of Chipping Campden, The Lygon Arms is the oldest Coaching Inn in Chipping Campden with trading records dating back to the 16th Century. Originally called the "White Hart" derived from Richard II's heraldic symbol. The name was changed to "The George" during the reign of James I (1603-1625). In 1772 there is a reference to the Inn then called "The Hare and Hounds" and was sold in 1821 by John Stanley. There is some confusion over the date that the name became "The Lygon Arms", However, in 1837 an old document refers to "The Hare and Hounds, now called the Lygon".
In 1942 Mr Leonard Potter bought it and since then it has been owned and run by four generations of the same family.
