About the Pub

Originally named the George & Dragon and dating from early Victorian times, much of the trademark classic Victorian decor still exists, including a mosaic floor with a centrepiece depicting Saint George slaying the dragon, plus a lovely tiled mural also depicting the eponymous Saint skewering his adversary. The design of the mosaic floor also allows us to determine the original multi-room layout of the place. It's furnished with re-cycled dining room furniture, which goes quite nicely in here. There's also a rather nice large wood-framed mirror on the back wall. This a spacious yet comfortable pub.
