George and Dragon

White Hart, Historic Norwich pub The George and Dragon operated at 15, Haymarket. It was built on the site of an inn with the rather unusual name of : "Abraham offering up his son." In 1619 it became known as Abraham's Hall.

In 1763 it was called the "George & Dragon." although during its lifetime it was also known as "The George" and "The St George & Dragon"

In the late 1970' s during renovation work many ancient timber beams were discovered, unfortunately these were not deemed to look `authentic' so were clad with more "realistic" polystyrene replicas.

It ceased trading in 1988 after which it was converted into a building society,the building now houses a Macdonalds.
