Pubs/Cafes

The George Inn is an historic Grade II listed pub dating back to the 1600s. The white-washed building has mullioned windows, thick stone walls, heavy oak beams and flagged floors. The pub is well known for the lit candle that sits on the bar to indicate the pub is open and serving. The tradition dates from auctions for agricultural land or grazing that are still held in The George. The last bid to be received before the candle extinguished is the winner. The pub is thought to have been a local haunt of author JB Priestley who loved the village and its surroundings. Priestley is probably best known for his play 'An Inspector Calls'.
The pub serves good quality food and is particularly known for its delicious homemade pies. It sits just opposite the Norman church which is well worthy of some investigation.
In Cray you could stop off at the White Lion. There's original beams, an open log fire and stoneflagged floors at this charming inn. The pub dates from the 1600s when it was an old drovers'inn. You can find them at postcode BD23 5JB.
