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.
At The George Pub, food is made strictly for the soul. Hearty, gutsy, plucky and really very good fun to eat, this is the kind of food that is simply cooked, and cleverly showcases Great British produce at its very best.
Expect traditional butcher’s cuts picked from Church Farm (one mile away). Classic Beef wellington (if you haven’t tried it, heck you haven’t lived!), top of the crop veg from the Woolley allotments just behind the pub, ridiculously chunky chips and chefs favourite - home-rolled runny yolk scotch eggs, which we think are the most perfect accompaniment to a crisp pint of draft. It's s close to fine-dining as pub grub gets.
The menu revolves around British classics such as pig’s cheek, Venison loin with a mini game pie, and pork belly with faggots, washed down with the ever-changing range of ales from Butcombe, Timothy Taylors, St Austell and Otter to name a few. Presentation is a high-point. There’s also a great wine list, with ten by the glass.
Changing with the seasons, our menus depend a lot on what fresh and provincial produce we can get our hands on from day to day. But for those eager for a glimpse of what to expect please tease away and have a peak at our pub aperitif.
A cosy refuge from the elements, packed with comfy sofas and log fires burning on cool days. Add in a fine range of real ales from Timothy Taylor, Butcombe and St Austell brewery, craft beers, a carefully selected wine list and a varied selection of whiskeys, cognacs, ports and rums, we have a large list of craft gins in stock, perfect cocktails. It's the perfect place to while away a few hours.
Pop out through the bar and relax in our south facing suntrap of a garden in the summer months, dining on our terrace, soaking up the sunshine and a pint.
The Brunswick and The Map Room
And just in case you’re fancying a bit of a celebration, we’ve got two rather lovely private dining rooms, prepped and ready for sharing with friends, family or business colleagues. Always popular, especially for pre-wedding dinners and breakfasts, and business lunches that need to be a little longer and leave a lasting impression...
