Important Covid information

If all goes according to plan, the first tranche of pubs (those that are able to serve drinkers outdoors) may be able to reopen on April 12th. Though of course, in a situation like this, nothing is guaranteed. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those known to be planning to reopen as soon as permitted are listed on this page.

Hungate La

First mentioned in records of 1728 when it was the Adam & Eve. It became the George & Dragon about 1795. It closed in 1904 and the license was transferred to the Ingate.

A pub appears at this spot on the 1884 OS town plan. This seems likely to have been the George & Dragon. If you can confirm or refute this, please let us know.
