If you are interested in a bit of history about this pub then read on...
This pub has had many different names over the years. The building dates from 1848 and was called The George and Dragon, In 1872 it was renamed the Kings Head. In 1878 it was renamed The Central. In 1939 it was renamed back to The George and Dragon (Click here to see) and incorporated the building next door (as you can clearly see by looking at the Metro Bar today). In 1989 it closed and looked like it was going to be demolished for shops but ended up reopening as The Central Vaults in 1992. In 1997 it was renamed The Tap House, since 2002 it has become The Metro Bar.

So the next 80s night is on Saturday 27th February 2010.
