Coffee Tavern and Hostelry at Newark Before 1896. Designed by Harold Ainsworth Peto (1854-1933) and Sir Ernest George (1839-1922). “The very dignified Coffee Tavern and Hostelry, Newark-on-Trent, is one of Mr. George's public buildings that exhibits a most admirable combination of utility and beauty. One has but to contrast this with the hideously ornate average publichouses to see how admirably a genuine artist can give you, all and more in the way of comfort and fitness that they give, and at the same time add a distinctly beautiful building to the town.”
