The George and Dragon

Plans to reopen a prominent Chester pub have moved a step closer to completion after they were approved by Cheshire West and Chester Council.

The George and Dragon, which has remained closed since the Covid pandemic, is set to be renovated and reopened by owners Greene King. Planning documents submitted in February this year have now been approved, with the owners set to carry out external and internal repairs.

In a summary, Walsingham Planning on behalf of Greene King said the proposed works comprise: "External and internal works of repair, refurbishment and redecoration of the building; repair and refurbishment of boundary walls, railings and balustrade; removal of external decking, new patio and installation of festoon lighting on wooden posts; repair and remark car park and new floodlights; replace and re-site external air conditioning units; new signage and new building mounted lighting."
