The George Hotel

George Inn, Brailes

1 High St, Lower Brailes, Banbury OX15 5HN.


The George Inn is a grade two listed coaching inn with tons of history and tradition. A family pub that welcomes children and dogs. Its prime location among beautiful walking trails means that it is a popular resting point for visitors where they can enjoy a cool beverage, a meal from the traditional menu, a seat in front of the log fire and a room to rest at the end of the day with a lot of history. It has massive appeal for people wanting to stay due to its history, location and atmosphere.
The rooms date before 1350 when the stonemasons who built the church were housed at the inn. The church site is a thousand years old and the existing building dates back to the early 1300s. Known as St. George’s Church it has
