TUNBRIDGE WELLS STAG HUNT

On Thursday some excitement was created by the unceremonious entrance of a fine stag into the town, followed by a troop of horsemen in full pursuit. It appears that the stag was started on Holtye Common, and took across the country in the direction of Cowden, and arrived by a circuitous route at Ashurst Mill, whence it proceeded at a tremendous pace to Langdon Green, and afterwards by way of Runsthall to Tunbridge Wells. It was stopped close to the “George Hotel,” after an exciting run of more than 15 miles. The stag was hunted by the East Surrey Hounds, the property of Sir W. Heathcote, of Durdens, near Epsom.

 

The pub changed name to the "TN4" date unknown and later to the "Lounge".

The building gained Grade 2 listing, date unknown. It is now (2019) back to the "George" again.
