Hello friends of the George.
As our restoration continues through 2021, we wanted to give you an update on our progress.
The roof is on, and scaffolding is coming down in stages. The top floor bedrooms are now complete and looking incredible. The Ballroom has a beautiful new plaster ceiling; the chandeliers are gleaming and ready to install, and the floors have been laid. Working our way down, our attention has turned to the ground floor with lots of exciting developments.
Things are really starting to take shape and it doesn’t feel too far distant now when we will be fluffing up the pillows on beds and firing up the Josper for our first dinner service. We can’t wait!
We had hoped to open for Christmas, but realistically it will be 2022; we will, of course, let you know when we have a confirmed date.
We would like to thank the local and wider community for their support, and we can't wait to welcome you back to show you all the amazing things that have been happening behind the scenes.
Alex, Katie and all the team at The George
