Finished in coursed limestone rubble with natural clay pantile roofing, this building displays some of the best architectural attributes common to traditional buildings in Dunston.

Of particular note are the small dormer windows, which sit in the roof-slope, rather than dominate the building, the mullioned windows on the lower façade, and the central gabled porch with its traditional timber door"

This pubs name is a reminder from Gainsborough's history.

"Hardly anything is known for sure of Cnut's life until the year he was part of a Scandinavian force under his father, King Sweyn, in his invasion of England in summer 1013.

It was the climax to a succession of Viking raids spread over a number of decades.

Following their landing in the Humber the kingdom fell to the Vikings quickly, and near the end of the year King Æthelred fled to Normandy, leaving Sweyn Forkbeard in possession of England.

In the winter, Forkbeard was in the process of consolidating his kingship, with Cnut left in charge of the fleet and the base of the army at Gainsborough.

On the death of Sweyn Forkbeard after a few months as king, on Candlemas (Sunday 3 February 1014), Harald succeeded him as King of Denmark, while the Vikings and the people of the Danelaw immediately elected Cnut as king in England"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cnut_the_Great

The gatehouse of this inn dates from the mid-C15th. Richard III held Court here in October 1483 receiving the Great Seal which had been sent for from London.

These events took place in the King's Room on the first floor of the building which has an oriel window looking across into the Market Place.

The Great Seal was used to sign the warrant for the execution of his cousin and former ally the Duke of Buckingham.  Charles I held Court here in 1633.

The inn was acquired by the Cust family who extended it in about 1776  with a four-storey north range some 14 bays long to cater for coach travellers on the Great North Road as well as visitors to the Belvoir Hunt

These names have their roots in a 19th-century political rivalry over the membership of Parliament for the constituency of Grantham, between the Manners family (the Duke of Rutland from Belvoir Castle) and the Brownlow family (from Belton House).

Pubs in the constituency declared political allegiances, and acted as gathering places for supporters of political factions.

The former George Hotel was built in the late eighteenth century, replacing a hostelry on the same site.

The large archway to the left was originally the entrance for coaches which travelled along the Great North Road running immediately in front of the building. (It is remarkable that sheep are being driven along this major road.)

Later this section was converted into garages.

In 1989 the George closed and was converted into a shopping centre.

The George Hotel was rebuilt in 1780 with an impressive brick façade. The central archway led through to stabling and service quarters at the rear which could be accessed from Westgate.

The George Inn is recorded as early as 1456 and was part of the manor of Grantham. The rebuilding of 1780 by John Manners was almost certainly in response to the new range added to the Angel Inn some four years previously.

The George is now a shopping centre and two Blue Plaques can be found in the internal atrium. One is to Thomas Paine, author of the Rights of Man and The Age of Reason, who as an excise man was based at the George Inn between 1762-64. The other is to Charles Dickens who stayed here in 1838.

"By 1377 the senior male line of the Marmions had died out, and in that year the office of King's Champion at the coronation of King Richard II was fulfilled by Sir John Dymoke, who had married Margaret Ludlow, daughter of Sir Thomas Ludlow and Johanna Marmion, daughter of Sir Philip Marmion"

The name of this pub is a reference to Baron Robert de Montalt.

"The first creation of the title was for Roger de Montalt, who was summoned to parliament on 23 June 1295. On his death two years later, the barony became extinct.

The second creation was for Robert de Montalt, who was summoned to parliament on 6 February 1299. He was the younger brother of the first baron of the 1295 creation. On his death thirty years later, the barony became extinct.

He died of his wounds after fighting a duel against Robert de Mablethorpe. (He was the son and heir of Sir William of Mablethorpe, lord of the manor of Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire, which was located on the site of the present Mablethorpe Hall) at Earls Bridge on the outskirts of Mablethorpe Lincolnshire.

Both men died of their wounds. Robert de Montalt was buried at All Saints Church in Maltby le Marsh. He was buried in the chancel; his tomb has an effigy of a cross-legged knight wearing chain mail and surcoat. At his head are two angels by the pillow and at his feet, two lions biting each other"
