The former George Hotel (photographed by the author, February 2010)
The George Hotel- no. 5 Black Diamond Street, on the corner of the busy Hoole Way stretch of the Inner Ringroad.
The George was, after sitting empty for a considerable period, converted for residential and commercial use and now, replete with a brand new sign 'The Old George', houses a hi-fi retailer with flats above. The left hand section of the building is a sympathetic modern addition, part of which is tenanted by a pizza company and the rest is still awaiting completionand occupation.
This contemporary view of The Old George also shows, to its immediate left, the still-thriving Egerton Arms and Railway
pubs on the corner of Brook Street and, left again, the modern nursing home where once stood The Angel Hotel.
Do you have any more information about this old pub?
