95 High St, IP13 0RA

grid reference TM 301 559

opened pre-1652

A Community Benefit Society was set up in December 2016 to acquire, restore and reopen The George. They have now completed a feasibilty study and there has been a go decision. For further details, including more historical background, see www.wmgeorge.co.uk.

In September 2018 it was announced that the group had succeeded in buying the pub. Clearly this is just the beginning of a long journey. It's hoped that the pub will be ready to reopen in 2023.

Sadly, the George was almost completely destroyed by fire in April 2013. (EADT article).

Early indications are that the remains of the pub will have to be demolished; we hope it can be rebuilt to continue providing a vital facility to this village…
