Unfortunately The George is now closed until further notice.

We look forward to being able to open again as soon as we can. In the meantime, stay safe!


The George is a beautiful 18th Century pub set on the banks of the River Avon on the edge of the New Forest National Park in the charming former market town of Fordingbridge.

Here with us you have a choice of dining experiences. Enjoy a stunning view of "The Great Bridge" and River Avon as you eat in our waterside conservatory, or have a cosy evening by the fire in the restaurant. Alternatively why not just pop in for a drink in the bar or enjoy a coffee or a cream tea on the waterside decking.

At The George we offer classic gastro pub food using locally sourced, seasonal produce whenever possible. We have a comprehensive wine list tailored to suit all tastes and pockets and of course carry a well stocked bar.

Dogs are now welcome in the bar area, conservatory and in our patio area. If you are booking a table and planning on bringing your dog along, please let us know when you book.

During peak times we strongly recommend booking a table if you want to eat with us. During busy periods once our kitchen is at capacity we stop accepting "Walk Ins" and can only serve customers who have booked to eat. Booked tables will be held for 20 minutes after which they will be released; if you are running late for your table please call to let us know. Thank you!

You are also welcome to join us for brunch Monday to Saturday between 10 am - 2.30 pm, or order from our take away delivery or collection menu, available Monday to Saturday between 12 and 7pm and Sunday between 12 and 4pm. We even offer take away Sunday Roasts!
