    This historic pub is on Tangier Street in Whitehaven, close to the harbour front, and has an impressive street frontage. It has had a number of name changes, and was first registered as a pub in 1828 when it was called The George & Dragon. It later took the name ‘Welsh Arms’ because it was frequented by welsh sailors taking cargo back to Cardiff. The pub was extensively refurbished in 2004, giving it a café bar feel while retaining its original features and was re-named after the local landmark, the distinctively shaped ventilation shaft on the Wellington pit.
