    The earliest record of the inn dates from 1494 when an agreement was signed giving rights over the property known then as the George to a Thomas Jopson. Whilst the building structure has been extensively altered over the centuries, there are still remains from Thomas Jopson's time. The central part of the building and the cellars are a part of the original 15th century house, perhaps built around 1450 and contemporary with the Red Lion on the opposite side of the street. **

    The inn is shown in the alehouse recognisance from 1764 until 1819 and then in consecutive trade directories up until the modern day.;also known as the George and the Dragon in the 1790's ***
