Not seen this elsewhere on here.


The George has been sold hopefully to reopen as a hotel. No mention of what might happen on the RL side of things.

Good news that it'll survive anyway.

There's no way that it will open again as a hotel in the foreseeable future. The smart money is on even more student accomodation - something that's really scarce in Huddersfield.

It's my now ex dentist, who's practice has not been the best and I now go elsewhere. However my money has obviously helped him make his brass. As has been said, he has a student property development company, although it does say 4 star hotel ambitions in the paper.

Whilst I do not suffer fools gladly, I will always gladly make fools suffer

Indeed. In truth the real fact is that pubs/hotels have always opened up and closed down in England for as long as I can remember. New licensing laws, demographic changes and fashions in entertainment are all to blame, if indeed 'blame' is the appropriate word.


Still, another version of the 'Britain's going to the dogs' argument, is always worth throwing in to the mix...
