Fancy a pint?

Lion Tavern

Can’t be to many pubs that get a plaque in their honour, the Lion Tavern got one so it must have been some place.
Nothing online to say why it has been remembered in this way.
In the Dundee Directory of 1824/25 A Mr Thomas Reid is listed as the owner of the Lion Tavern that is all I could find. Might send an email to the old museum to see if they have any info on this, they were pretty good at letting me know they’d skipped the WW1 oak memorial for the Dundee soldiers that gave their lives in the great war.

Edit: I’ve emailed the cheeky chaps at the McManus Galleries and will update the post with any info they give me. Fingers crossed.
