See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The pub, after being closed for some months following a failed bid by New River in 2017/18 to use most of the garden for residential development, reopened on 26 April 2019. The freehold has been acquired by 70 local residents operating as the Lilacs Inn Isham Ltd. For the uninitiated - Lilacs takes its name from a local breed of rabbit! The pub has an interesting layout with the former snug now opened out with a darts bard, a small lounge to the front and a very open, almost hall-like room to the rear. The recently re-discovered murals of local residents are interesting! The grounds include a large car park and 2 gardens. Two of the guest beers are from Oakham and Potbelly. Breakfast is served Saturday mornings from 9 until 11, while on Sundays a popular carvery is served. Regular events include an open mic session.
