George Hotel, Axminster

The George Hotel was situated on George Street. This pub was present by 1853.
 
The following is taken from a 1930s Wills cigarette card:
'The George at Axminster is a pleasing specimen of the type of inn built in the first half of the eighteenth century. Its harmonious Georgian proportions bring vividly to mind the days when coaches and post-chaises swung proudly along the London-Exeter road, their ever increasing numbers at that time causing a corresponding increase in hostels anxious to supply the needs of passengers. One of the chief architectural attractions of The George is an Adam dining room, with the original Adam fireplace and an old music gallery.'
Brian Boyle (July 2011)
 
Now reopened.
