The George Inn After being acquired by the local pub company, Thorley Taverns, this cozy town pub has recently reopened, reclaiming its original name from the pre-1960s era. Previously known as the Barnaby Rudge, inspired by the Dickens novel written, in part, at the nearby Archway house, the pub has reverted to its former identity. Initially established in 1830 as the British Tar, it transformed into the George by 1849.
Under the careful stewardship of Thorley Taverns, the pub has received the company's signature aesthetic, resulting in a distinctive and inviting ambiance. Additionally, patrons can now enjoy real ales, showcasing a diverse selection of quality beverages.
