George & Dragon, Garrigill
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 NY7441 : Garrigills George and dragon inn.

'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!”
