In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Hungate La

grid reference TM 421 902

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.
