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.

Gislingham Prince George

Gislingham Prince George

also traded as Prince of Wales

Closed 1926 or 1927.

last owner/operator: Colchester Brewery

West View House High St

grid reference TM 075 715

Now West View House, this was build around 1600, with some rebuilding a century later and alterations in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The license wasn't renewed in 1927, so the pub presumably closed about 1926 or 1927.

NOTE: With the death of Frederick, Prince of Wales in 1751 his eldest on Prince George became heir to British throne (and crowned King George the third in 1760).
