The George and Pilgrim Hotel houses the oldest purpose-built pub in the southwest of England. The site dates back to the 15th century and still has some of its original features, like old oak beams, mullion windows, and paneled stone frontage. The hotel has 14 well-decorated, atmospheric rooms (£70-150 per night), but The George and Pilgrim’s main draw is its historic pub and its prime location. Spend some time enjoying a meal, or just sample each of the pub’s traditional ales after a day of exploring Glastonbury.
