You will find the George Inn located in a  prominent corner plot, between Bridge Street and Thames Street, on the outskirts of Walton on Thames, Surrey.

The George Inn is a classic example of a true wet led, community pub that has enjoyed a loyal and local customer following since it first opened in 1888.

It is currently home to a great range of real ales and the addition of televised BT Sport and a mixed darts team makes the George           popular amongst the sports loving customers locally. Live music is on offer every two weeks offering a great range of genres to suit all tastes and a monthly pub quiz has been recently introduced.

Internally you will find an open plan trade area with a feature bar servery and there is a small kitchenette available. A very simple and limited food offer is available Tuesday to Friday lunchtimes and the home-cooked Sunday lunches are becoming increasingly popular each week.

To the back of the pub you will also find a small courtyard garden area which proves popular in the warmer weather.

The George is now looking for a new tenant that loves to be at the heart of a great local community and who enjoys running a wet led operation. It has the potential to suit both experienced operators or those looking for their first tenancy and challenge.

Please contact us for more information or to arrange a formal viewing on 01795 542132.

Non Domestic Business Rates


MULTIPLIER 2019/2020 - 0.491


  • As at the time of publishing, the estimated rates payable, are based upon the assumption that the tenant occupies the maximum of one pub and therefore qualifies for small business rates relief
  • We have also applied the relevant multipliers and estimated transitional relief where applicable
  • Retail relief has been applied to all pubs with a rateable value of £51,000 or less. This entitles the occupier to a third reduction in rates payable after all other reliefs and will run for the 2019/20 and 2020/21 rating years. This is an assumption that should be confirmed with the local authority
  • The above calculations are estimations only and as rateable values are  subject to change, we would request that the prospective new  tenant checks the rates payable and any other relief with the local authorities prior to completing a financial plan
