Dragon roars again

Iconic Much Wenlock pub and restaurant the George and Dragon is celebrating a bumper few months of trading after reopening in October thanks to a huge community effort.

Locals Jo Brown, Richard Torr and Robin Bennett joined forces to reopen the Grade II listed pub after a short period of closure. With the invaluable help of former landlady Bev Mason and an army of local volunteers armed with paintbrushes and cleaning equipment, the pub was brought back into shape.

“It’s such a special place to meet friends, talk and socialise,” says Robin. “We were all heartbroken to see the George close, and it left a big hole in our High Street. Now that it’s back to its best, busy and really buzzing, it’s made the hard work all worthwhile. We had a fabulous Christmas and we’re so excited about 2019.”
