Historic inn reopens after refurbishment and renovation

The George Inn

The George Inn in Norton St Philip has reopened after a six-week closure for improvements and preservation.

The Grade I-listed 14th Century Tudor Inn, dating back to 1397, underwent sympathetic updates, preserving its original features.

The bar has been relocated to create a more spacious lounge with enhanced period décor and the dining room showcases the original stone fireplace, existing pews, and refreshed timber floor.

The pub now features three multi-functional event spaces in addition to the existing function room ‘The Dungeon’.

Jayson Perfect, group managing director, Pubs & Inns, Liberation Group said: “As custodians of this incredible building we’ve worked closely with preservation officers to ensure all the improvements we’ve made have been sympathetically carried out.  In addition to cosmetic enhancements, we’ve also carried out some repairs and maintenance which will ensure The George Inn is here for many years to come.

“The interior is still familiar but we’ve carefully highlighted key features to make the uniqueness of the building sing.  The George Inn is now even more beautiful and welcoming with a wonderful new food offering for locals and visitors to enjoy.”
