The Green Dragon, Foregate Street (now a branch of Abbey National)
The original Green Dragon Inn was, for at least four centuries, located at 39 Eastgate Street where Thornton's confectioners is now. The advertisment below dates from this time, when Arthur Banks owned it in 1857. It was sold in 1893 to Dicksons the Seed Merchants who occupied premises either side of it at the time. The name was then transferred to the former Brewer's Arms (see picture below) in Foregate Street, becoming The Green Dragon Hotel.
The original Brewer's Arms c.1895
