George & Dragon day trip

Sheffield & District CAMRA are hoping to arrange a day trip to visit CAMRA’s national Pub of the Year for 2017, the George & Dragon in Hudswell, North Yorkshire. The pub was re-opened in 2010 by a local community group and also won the Yorkshire Pub of the Year award in 2016.

We have provisionally scheduled the trip for Saturday 2 September and are currently trying to gauge interest. We are planning to depart from the Old Queen’s Head in the city centre at 11:00, and stop for a drinks break at the Castle Tavern in Richmond around 13:00. It is then a short drive to the George & Dragon, where we are hoping to spend about two hours. On the way back, we will stop for food at the Cover Bridge Inn in East Witton, then we should arrive back in Sheffield around 21:30. The cost of the transport will be around £20 per person, depending on numbers.

If you are interested, or know anyone who might be, please contact our Social Secretary, Patrick Johnson, at, or sign up at the August branch meeting. The deadline for bookings is Saturday 5 August, so please act quickly to avoid disappointment!
