Prologue : concerning scandal, murder, smuggling, highwaymen, coffee, & C. -- In which we make the perilous and eventful journey to the George Inn, Southwark, from my house -- Concerning dates, names, Mutya, Heidi & C. -- Being some remarks on London's first bridge, and how this bridge gives our story its very shape -- On inns, taverns, alehouses, pubs and boozers. But mainly inns, and the distinctive nature thereof -- The poet's tale, or, how English literature was born in a Southwark inn -- In which we meet the inhabitants of sinful Southwark, and the patrons if its divers inns, taverns and alehouses -- Concerning bulls, bears, actors and other beasts, and their various 'entertainments', including the sad tale of a monkey on a horse -- Further unsavoury activities in inns and alehouses, and how these places were burn'd by almightly God's fury (if you believe in that sort of thing) -- Our inn enjoys a golden age of romance, highwaymen, complicated timetables and sore posteriors -- Concerning drink, hops and politics, and how the George Inn brings these elements together -- In which the road of steel replaces the roads of the Romans, and the inns of the Borough suffer a terrible fate -- Concerning a mother and daughter, two brothers, and the condition of nostalgia -- In which the George Inn is sav'd for the nation, and a princess and a bishop have a lock-in -- Epilogue : a drink at the George Inn to-day
