The George Inn
This beautiful 18th-century coaching inn is nestled in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, only half an hour’s drive from historic Hastings, Tunbridge Wells and Battle. The classic beauty of the exterior is matched by a tasteful interior decorated in slate grey and cream, with painted wooden panelling and cosy armchairs and a large inglenook fireplace. There’s also a sunny courtyard; the perfect place to enjoy a sparkling English wine from a nearby vineyard. Although this venue boasts truly stunning surroundings, the jewel in its crown is the hospitality offered by husband-and-wife team John and Jane. The warm welcome offered to every guest is just part of what secured The George Inn a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
You’ll also discover a wonderful food scene, with a mixture of popular classics and modern creations to choose from. The meat used is local and free-range to ensure you are served the highest-quality dishes every time you visit. If you’re stopping by with friends, you might opt for one of the sharing boards or, alternatively, enjoy a rich pork terrine with roasted apple, light goat’s cheese salad, chargrilled cheeseburger or Romney Salt Marsh lamb rump with wild garlic mash. Pudding-lovers are not forgotten either and everything is homemade, so why not treat yourself? If you want to stay a little longer, there are four beautifully decorated bedrooms to retreat to.
