The name of this pub recalls the building’s original purpose as a savings bank and Perth’s status in medieval times as the capital of Scotland. Spread along the west bank of the River Tay, modern Perth has its roots deep in the past. In 1210, William, the Lion King of Scots, founded a royal burgh here – the early capital of Scotland until c1452. It was also the meeting place for parliament, with Scottish kings being crowned at the nearby Palace of Scone.
