The George Hotel on Swaffham Road in Dereham, which has been empty since the former owners left in the middle of August, is now up for let in a new free of tie lease at £50,000 per year.

Gareth and Rebecca Williams, who ran the pub together for six years, decided not to renew their lease on the Dereham venue so they could spend more time with family.
