The George in St Mary Bourne finally opened its doors to the village on Saturday 2nd August 2014.
Phil Cockroft, well known and loved Landlord of the Southampton Arms in Andover, took on The George in St Mary Bourne, a Hall & Woodhouse pub after it had been shut since February 2014.
The opening night saw this popular local pub absolutely packed with locals and customers from Phil’s Andover based pub, The Southampton Arms. At times the bar was 5 people deep with customers desperate to get a drink from the very busy staff behind the bar, who kept a good pace throughout the night.
Phil laid on a great spread of food, including Curry, Casserole, Ham, Beef, Breads, Cheese and lots more, which customers tucked into.
There was live music, which attracted lots of dancers and before long, the dance floor was packed full of sweaty happy bodies!
It was fantastic to see the tables outside again covered in customers, chatting and drinking in the centre of the village. A great night and a sign of things to come.
