The George, Dining, Drinking, Sleeping and  Cooking

Away from the hustle and bustle of any city, this delightful country pub re-opened in July 2015 after a major refurbishment by the new owners Alison Ward-Baptiste and Chef Alex Venables, a previous Michelin star winner.  With the recent addition of luxurious guests rooms, it now styles itself as "a a pub with rooms - all you need for a quiet night or a rural weekend away from it all.  With delicious fine dining to boot.

The George, hidden away in the Wiltshire Countryside, is the perfect base for exploring the surrounding Cotswold's, feasting on Classic British pub grub with a twist, having a good chinwag with the friendly bar staff and sloping off to bed while gazing out a the rolling fields and country lanes

Nestled in the hamlet of Woolley, we are just down the road from historic Bradford on Avon, where you can enjoy a pleasant stroll along the Kennet and Avon canal, or stop for a coffee while exploring the antique shops.

You will be greeted like royalty by the incredibly jolly bar staff.  Check in and reception is part of the well stocked bar and a cosy lounge with its open log fires.

At The George - just awarded "Best Pub in Bradford on Avon", we support British farmers and artisan producers and our menus reflect this.  Our award winning kitchen uses the finest ingredients to create dishes that celebrate traditional British cooking with a contemporary twist.

Oh, and did we mention the two self-contained apartments above? Ideal for anyone wanting to explore Bath and the surrounding countryside, including historic Bradford on Avon, with its Tithe Barn, weavers cottages, C13 church, and antique shops.
