The George, situated in the heart of Crewkerne, has provided travellers with a warm welcome, comfortable bed and much needed refreshment for over 400 years. South Coast Inns has recently purchased the hotel and will be refurbishing the property to proudly continue the tradition of hospitality, whilst improving facilities to meet the requirements of the modern traveller.

The Inn named in honour of the Patron Saint of England has stood at the centre of Crewkerne since at least 1541. The present building dates from 1832. The facade of its neo-classical structure is built in traditional dressed hamstone. Its noble architectural features include a central open-pediment of brackets and a fine elliptical rustic archway, leading to what was once the Inn's Royal Mail-warranted stable yard.

Having been recognised as a coach stage as early as 1580; the George was acquired in 1619 by Thomas Hutchings, postmaster of Crewkerne. Mr Hutchings is credited with having created the first profitable postal service in Britain, between London and Exeter. During more than the two following centuries, The George became and remained one of the principal posting/coaching inns in the South West of England.
