​The Lion, Treorchy

Adrian Emmett ​​


The Lion has been trading extremely well since opening and has secured nominations for the Ei Group Awards for Excellence for the past two years and is our reigning Community Hub winner. The pub and publican, Adrian Emmett, has also secured awards and nominations in a host of other industry recognised awards over the years.

From beer festivals to baby showers, the pub really appeals to the whole community, even working with local schools to offer work experience and host students prior to their prom.

The Lion sponsors a number of local initiatives including the town firework display at bonfire night, and Adrian even organises an annual Christmas parade. There is no end to the support the pub provides to the local area and beyond, and Adrian has really established himself and his pub at the heart of the community.

Adrian was also named High Street Hero for Wales and Treorchy High Street named as the overall winner High Street of the Year in the Great British High Street Awards 2019.
