A Historic Pub

Back in 1739, The George was a coaching inn for those travelling between Tunbridge Wells and London, and the interior of the building, with its exposed beams, brickwork, fireplaces, and oak floorboards, still exudes warmth and nostalgia from every corner. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a quiet drink, create new family memories, or gather with friends, there’s a perfect spot waiting for you.

Today, our award-winning, proudly independent pub is a celebration of both the traditional and the modern. Our eclectic drinks menu features wine, gin, spirits, IPA beer, and ale and lager from global brands, as well as weird and wonderful new flavours from local microbreweries and distilleries.

Enchanting Pub Garden

Our front patio captures the afternoon sun perfectly, but as night falls, venture out to our secret garden and bask in the soft glow of ambient lighting. You’ll find a large decked seating area under the protection of an all-weather canopy. Many of our tables are equipped with heaters, so you can enjoy our pub garden during crisp autumn and winter days, and long summer evenings.

Behind the bar

As the only brewpub in town, independent craft beer is at the heart of what we do. That’s why we stock a variety of ale and lager sourced from local microbreweries alongside approachable, well-known brands such as Guinness and Budvar. Visit our brewery taproom to learn more.
