George & Dragon, Lancaster

George and Dragon logo, remastered from the pub-sign original by Barry (Sept. 2020).

The George and Dragon is one of the oldest pubs in Lancaster – it has been serving beer for longer than many coutries have existed! It was a great pleasure to work with Mike and Anne to develop this new website for them – allowing visitors to check what is available without crowding around the bar.

The new website is driven by a custom administration section that allows Mike to add new beers to his cellar, and put them on the virtual bar at the click of a button. The one-page site is built around Google’s ‘Rich Results’ platform, providing meta-data to help publicise opening times, current selection of beers, and events (when these become possible).
