Murenger in one of the first posts I ever did back in November 2007. In the 1970s the Murenger House was in a perilous state, having to be propped up with scaffolding to prevent it from collapsing as in the photograph above. Buses were diverted from High Street to prevent vibrations from damaging the Tudor builing any further and it the future did not look good for the building. Luckily Sam Smith's Brewery of Tadcaster, Yorkshire stepped in to repair and save the building. Today the Murenger House is a thriving pub with good beer (its in the Good Beer Guide) and good conversation. Well done Sam's!
