The oldest tavern in England?
Its history isn't entirely pretty. In 1685 the people of the West Country revolted in support of the Duke of Monmouth against James II, and the George served as the rebels' headquarters for a brief period. When the rebellion was quelled, it also served as a courthouse where the infamous Judge Jefferies oversaw the trials of some of the rebels. A dozen people were executed on the village common.
I hope you had a great weekend. Are there any ancient taverns near you?
