A little history of The Leopard

About The Leopard

Our History

The Leopard was acquired by Joule's Brewery in 2012. The pub was originally built in 1880 by Taylor Walker to a very high spec’ in the style of an Edwardian hunting lodge and to an unusually high quality, especially the fine leaded glass adorned with African hunting shields, this lead Joule's Brewery to research the pub’s history and to find the Taylor Walker designer’s penchant for both hunting lodge and country house design. The pub was also once the headquarters, changing rooms and home to Nantwich Football Club.

Joule's Brewery have tried to re-establish this history and created some new features making reference to its origins and we hope we have done the pub justice.

The refurbishment of the Leopard was, at the time, Joule’s Brewery’s biggest ever investment and refelected our desire for the brewery to secure a flagship house in Nantwich.
