The George Inn is London's oldest galleried coaching in. Dating back to 1542.
When people traveled by horse, a coaching inn was key for when they needed to stop for the night, eat and drink, or change horses. (My understanding of what I have read about them) This is considered a galleried coaching in because you can see the second story balcony/gallery where you could look down into the square. At times there would be performances held in the square! The original building burnt in a fire, but in 1676 it was rebuilt and that is the building that still stands, so it is quite old still
This seemed like a great place to try out a delicious Sunday roast and sticky toffee pudding! Afterall, it The George Inn was good enough for William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens, it's good enough for me! ;)
