Meet the owners

The new owners of The George are Caroline and James, who took over in early September 2013.

Their vision for the pub is to build on its already great local reputation and make it a destination food venue, championing local New Forest produce and fabulous international wines.

Caroline has over 16 years' experience in the catering trade, most notably working with Heston Blumenthal managing Popham Little Chef, star of his "Big Chef Takes on Little Chef" programme. She is passionate about customer service and creating a memorable dining experience that is memorable for all the right reasons! More recently she worked at the Plough and Flail, an incredibly popular Gastro Pub in a very affluent area of Cheshire.

James ran The Original Oak in Headingley (the busiest pub in the country) many moons ago, and more recently had a successful career in Sales. He is happy to be back behind the bar where he belongs.

The Management is supported by a fabulous team of experienced staff whose local knowledge is invaluable.

At The George you will find everyone to be enthusiastic, friendly and customer focused, ensuring that you have the best possible experience.
