Bakers Vaults
Bakers Vaults
The Grade II-listed pub was previously known as the George and Dragon and was built around 1775 on the remaining foundations of the old Stockport castle.

The Baker family owned and ran the George & Dragon from 1824. In 1861 it was rebuilt in the gin palace style of the times to make room for the new market hall and renamed the Baker's Vaults.

The Robinson brewery pub was closed for a time in early 2014 but has recently been refurbished inside and is now open again.
