The George Inn is the oldest inn, with a continuous license, in Lacock. The earliest part, of timber framing and rubble stone, is 16th century or earlier while a stone range was added in the early 19th century. This is said to have been an inn in 1361 but it is difficult to know if that inn was on the same site as the present one. In a fireplace in the early part of the building is a dog powered wooden turnspit wheel.
