About us

The ‘Moon Under Water’ was the name of the ideal pub imagined by George Orwell. The famous writer described his fictitious pub in a newspaper article. In late Victorian times, a furniture ‘emporium’ traded on this site. It was later divided into smaller shops, one of which was the Co-operative Society’s drapery store. The ‘Co-Op’ later took over all of the shops. The redeveloped premises opened in 1931. Its new, bigger café is now The Moon Under Water.
