The stone built George Inn is situated to the west of Nailsworth. The building was originally a row of three cottages. When the pub opened in 1820 it was known as the New Inn. It later changed its name to the George Inn. In 1903, unlike the pubs in Nailsworth, the George closed at 10 p.m. There must have been a few customers heading down the hill to get an extra pint or two in after closing time.

Ooops!! The photographer must have had at least eight pints of Stroud Brewery extra special strong ale before snapping this image (allegedly)
