  • Description

    "Situated on the Pennine Way long-distance footpath, the C2C long-distance cycleway and the South Tyne Trail, the George & Dragon is an ideal watering hole for refreshments and is open again after being closed for over a year [[4092634]] 'The Dragon Awakes.' To ensure the success of the new operation, the Vicar of Alston Moor, the Rev. Mark Nash-Williams and his cleric wife, the appropriately named Bar, dropped in to bless the C18th pub and all who drink there. Accompanied by a toy dragon, the vicar offered a blessing to all who work, eat, drink and stay there, so that the newly-reopened pub would be a place of joy, laughter and goodwill for the whole community. “The Church has been associated with beer ever since St Brigid miraculously turned her bathwater into beer for visiting bishops!” Hexham Courant Tuesday, 19 May 2015" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2015.
