The George has been around for as long as anyone can remember, but in early 2016 it was been treated to a huge makeover including all 15 en-suite bedrooms. Standing proudly in the centre of Shipston High Street, it still remains as the tallest building on the street at three and a half stories. We describe the look as modern yet sympathetic to it's late 18th century features with a feel of casual elegance about it. All the rooms are decorated to a high standard, offering a comfy place to stay. Their sophisticated simplicity gives them a luxurious feel. They all have en-suite bathrooms and breakfast is always included. The ground floor of the George Townhouse is spacious, and our extensive menu covers all meal times. Call in at the start of the day and enjoy a freshly cooked Full English breakfast in the parlour, or pop into our garden room to sample a sharing board and glass of wine over lunch. In the evening treat yourself to a steak in the pantry, sourced from Todenham Manor Farm just 4 miles away.

We booked a night at the George to visit family. The reception was very professional and helpful. The Hotel and room was very clean well and set up for Covid issues. A very comfortable good sized room with a good bathroom. Breakfast was as good as anywhere we have been. Staff were helpful throughout and gave excellent service.

What a fabulous find. Matt and his team have created a safe, inviting hotel/restaurant/pub. They have gone the extra mile to ensure that the entire place is ‘Covid safe’ - from payment/ordering app; booking; plenty of sanitizer ; room check in etc. Excellent food, accommodation and friendliness - We were given the closest room to suit my poor mobility and meeting my dietary requirements was happily met. The staff are exceptional in their attitude and friendliness . We will defiantly go back and will be recommending others too. The location was refreshing too with plenty of opportunity to discover new & interesting places easily.

We’ve been to The George a couple of times and checked before booking they were set up for safety post COVID. So glad we stayed here - they have done a great job in making sure everything in place with booked tables / app to order etc. They reserved us a table for lunch and dinner on both days and very reassured on both the service and hygiene. What made the break though was the staff everyone of them made us feel so welcome and very happy to be there. The manager really cares for his staff and his customers - highly recommend a visit to stay or for food / drink. Every meal we had was well cooked - my partners a coeliac and they catered really well for him too - well done all of you at the George - thank you.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Safety is the most important thing for us at the moment, however we want everyone to still be able to enjoy themselves and relax when they visit. The team read all of our reviews and ones as lovely as this really make our hard work worth while. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and we very much hope to see you again soon.

2nd time eating at the George since they reopened. Both times the place was clean and the staff were friendly, attentive and made you feel welcome even with the pre-cautions against Covid19. The food and drink were, as always, excellent.
