The legend reawakens: The George re-opening is coming!

Are you ready to experience the legendary tale of one of Hathersage’s most historic resting stops?

With only a matter of days until we open the doors to The George, we’re bringing you an exclusive preview of what to expect when you step into the narrative and help us write a new chapter in its story.

Restoring The George to its original roots as a 16th century coaching inn, we’ve created a destination where around every corner, hints of heritage meet contemporary tones.

Fuss-free food

Not only has The George’s restaurant undergone an epic visual makeover, we’re also buzzing to offer a tempting selection of gastro-pub style dishes that any top restaurant would be proud to serve, including our pièce de resistance, the wood-fired pizza oven! Complete with fresh sourdough bases and of course, a gluten free alternative.

Drink it all in

Yes, literally! Choose from our line-up of hearty ales from Derbyshire breweries, gins from local distilleries and freshly brewed coffee from Roastology. And with our well-stocked bar being relocated to the restaurant, you won’t miss a single part of the action.

Room at the inn

What can you expect when you enter one of our comfortable bedrooms, whose names take inspiration from the life and work of one of The George’s visitors from yesteryear – Charlotte Brontë? Well, a cosy bed and countryside character, for starters. But we’re not giving too much away, you’ll have to visit to find out more!

Interior transformation

For regulars of The Maynard, you’ll have come to expect a certain standard from the Longbow Bars & Restaurants team. We’re carrying that ethos through to the very fabric of The George, offering equally heroic service but very much taking on its own identity.

We’ve gone as far as adding a new sound system for subtle yet atmospheric background music, along with a whole new colour palette, artwork-adorned walls and expressive lighting to set a relaxed tone.
