The Royal George

The Royal George pub was built to replace another Royal George that had been on the same site.  It opened in July 1964 and was well known for the metal sculpture of the Royal George ship that used to be above the entrance.  Sadly, the pub has been shut for a number of years, but the building remained in 2014.
