Giddy up: horses are delivering beer for St George’s Day

Way before our roads were filled with HGVs, it was down to the humble horse to deliver London’s beer supplies. To celebrate St George’s day on April 23, The Lamb Tavern in Leadenhall Market is going back to basics and getting its beers delivered by traditional dray horses.

The pub is owned by Young’s & Co, which used horses to transport its beer for 150 years before it had the luxury of good old engine power. The horses will be trotting into town with the beer delivery at 1pm and there will be traditional morris dancers at 11.30am and 1.30pm, as well as a live band at 6pm so you can spend the whole day horsing around.
