Breathing Life Back into The George

After the flooding caused by Storm Babet forced us to close for eight months, The George is back! We will reopen on Thursday, June 13, 2024 at midday.

In the eight months we have been closed, a full refurbishment has taken place. You’ll see restored features, new quirks and lots of heritage and character in every corner. We’ll be reopening with a brand new summer menu and just in time for Father’s Day on Sunday, June 16, 2024.

We really can’t wait to welcome you back to The George. We’ve used the time we’ve been closed to improve training, raise standards and get ready for a busy, bustling summer.

See you soon, get booked in. It’s going to be busy!

Legend tells of a knight and a dragon

The George is bursting at the seams with history and provenance. The 6th Duke of Devonshire was its first registered owner and it provided regular visitor, Charlotte Bronte, with much inspiration for her masterpiece, Jane Eyre.

Stories are shared of a knight called George, whose crusade against dragons brought him to Hathersage
