AS OF THE 20TH MARCH WE ARE CLOSED

It is with great sadness we have called last orders in all our pubs for the time being to support the fight against COVID-19. But don’t worry, we are busy working on opening our doors again with the safety of our teams and customers as our number one priority. While we continue to follow government guidelines, we’re getting excited for the day we can meet again and raise a glass in the pub.

Until then, stay safe, and don’t forget us!

The George Inn

 

OUR VIRTUAL PUB IS OPEN!

While our pubs are closed, we’ve decided to open a virtual pub, The Lock Inn. We know many of our customers are feeling cut-off from their friends and for some a visit to the pub is the only social contact they will have in a day. The Lock Inn aims to help tackle loneliness and isolation by offering activities and entertainment to encourage interaction. We’re starting with a WEEKLY INTERACTIVE QUIZ on Wednesdays at 6pm and ROCK AND ROLL BINGO every Friday at the same time, with more events and community support activities planned over the coming weeks.

Welcome to the

George Inn

 

This picturesque, ivy-clad Grade II listed pub is perched on the bend of Mill Lane in the Somerset village of Bathampton. Across the road sits St Nicholas Church, while the Kennet and Avon Canal ebbs gently past the pub's spacious beer garden. Visitors will often find pretty canal boats moored next to the pub, their owners coming ashore to sample our delicious British classics, fine wine and cask ales. With its waterside location, delightful rural setting and ample outdoor terrace, The George Inn makes an ideal spot from which to watch the world go by, particularly in summer. Yet the pub boasts bags of character indoors too; the kind that comes with age, not design. On chilly days guests will love the low ceilings, creaking beams, nooks and crannies, or to take the weight off in front of our real log fires. The George Inn offers a special kind of cosiness, that's best enjoyed over a romantic meal and a glass of wine. The George Inn sits on the banks of the Kennet and Avon Canal in Mill Lane, Bathampton, opposite St. Nicholas Church. There is some debate as to when exactly the inn was built. Some sections seem to have been established as early as the 12th century, when it was part of a monastery for the Prior of Bath. Though according to English Heritage, the current building is built from ‘coursed rubble with a Cotswold stone slate roof’ and dates from the mid to late 17th century, while the west gable is dated 1815. The George Inn is said to be haunted by the ghost of Viscount John Baptiste Du Barre, a foreign noble, who died in the last legal duel fought in Britain. A decadent man who held lavish parties, he was also fond of gambling. Following a quarrel over a game of cards, a challenge was thrown down and he and his opponent met on Claverton Down at dawn on 18th November 1778.
