A traditional country style pub and restaurant, you will find the George Inn tucked neatly away in Newnham, on the outskirts of Faversham Kent.

Dating back to 1540 the George is brimming with ‘Olde Worlde’ style charm and it still retains some of its original features to include three inglenook fireplaces and lovely oak beams.

Internally you will find a feature bar servery with open plan drinking and dining space for approximately eighty covers, and perfectly equipped for purpose, the pub boasts a good sized trade kitchen with walk-in fridge freezers, a wash up area and lots of onsite storage space.

The large grassed back garden is a real feature at the George Inn, it is a hit with the local community and it allows you to cater for additional alfresco dining covers during the summer months. There is also a small patio area with seating to the side of the building together with plenty of on site customer car parking.
