The George Inn Bath
Mill Street
Somerset BA2 6TR
 
 
 
The 12th century The George Inn is situated on Mill Street Bathampton Village opposite St Nicholas Church and beside the Kennett & Avon Canal.
 
With the canal so close, it is a popular stopping point for the touring canal folk and all other tourists.
 
It has an interesting and varied history, having started life as a monastery and it even has a priest hole linking it to the nearby church.
 
And yes, there is a ghost!
Jean Baptiste Vicomte Du Barre was a Frenchman who was involved in the last duel fought in England. He was mortally wounded and it is said that he died in the Inn (not strictly true because he died where he fell, on Claverton Down). He is certainly buried in St Nicholas Church Churchyard. Reports are that his ghost has been seen standing by the bar.
 
The George Inn is a typical old English pub with small cosy rooms, open fires and exposed beams. An ideal pub to retire to for lunch and an ale after an interesting day seeking out the history of the nearby St Nicholas Church or maybe walking the Kennett & Avon Canal.
