About this venue

Welcome to the Coach & Lantern, home of great food, great beers, friendly staff and the best live entertainment in the Hamilton area.

This building was built in the late 1700′s. It later burned and was re-built around 1823. It is the 3rd oldest building in Ancaster! Ancaster is the 3rd oldest community in Ontario after Kingston and Niagara on the Lake. Part of it’s storied past include that in 1812, traitors were sentenced here. The bloodiest sentence ever handed down to this day was here in this building.

It became the Union hotel around 1870. About 20-25 years ago, it became the Traitor’s Court and has run as a pub ever since. 

Paint Nite is located on the second floor and is not wheelchair accessible.
