The name of this Wetherspoon pub recalls the town’s origin as an ancient settlement, called Lantokay. In time, the name was forgotten, and the settlement was called ‘Leigh’ and then ‘Street’. It was the early Christian settlement, at Glastonbury, which attracted several Celtic saints to this area. It was one such saint who settled on the higher, drier ground above the marshes, where Street Church now stands, and founded Lantokay – the Ilan (or sacred enclosure) of Kay.
