St George & Dragon
Artist: Andrew Gray
Location: 69 High St
The former St George Hotel, a grade B listed building began life as a coaching inn in 1625, probably of wood. Re-built in stone 1828, the portico ceiling at the entrance is adorned with a somewhat naïve mural on wood depicting St George slaying the legendary Dragon. It is thought that the mural dates some time after 1920, when the George Hotel became the St George.
Andrew Gray of Dunbar was a decorator and amateur artist. In addition to the St George mural, Gray executed ceiling paintings in the former Dunbar Castle Lodge of Freemasons at No 3 Abbeylands, High Street, Dunbar
