'Beer & Food Pub of the Year' & 'Best Website'
If you are visiting the Cotswolds for pleasure or business, are looking for bed and breakfast and would you like to stay in a historic, former coaching inn, then visit the George in Lower Brailes near Banbury, Oxfordshire.
The George is a sympathetically refurbished Grade II listed coaching inn. Located above the pub, the George has five clean and bright, individually decorated bedrooms.“Warm, inviting and stylish while maintaining the charm and character of their historic surroundings, our rooms are designed to provide the perfect refuge for our guests” say the licensees.
The George’s Village Bar is a traditional English pub bar and is used by locals and visitors. It is a place where farmers meet and walkers recover. You will meet all types here. There is also a large selection of ales from the local Hooky brewery.
The restaurant is an outstanding location in any pub, there is an inglenook fireplace, stone mullion windows and some historic panels. The room dates before 1350 when the stonemasons who built the church were housed at the inn. The pub’s menu is traditional. Outside the garden and conservatory have been re-modelled. Bookings from walking groups are welcome – and they can leave their vehicles in the large car park before returning for a well-earned lunch.
The church site is a thousand years old and the existing building dates back to the early 1300's. Known as St. George's Church it has the second largest six bell peal in the world. The tenor bell weighs one and a half tons. Just south of the village you will find the earthworks of a medieval castle.
Brailes is a large village along the B4035, between Banbury and Shipston on Stour. It has a huge variety of historic buildings to see and many fine walks.
