Pub says cheers
THE George Inn, Gurney Slade, is booming after a successful month since reopening.
The pub closed in April and reopened mid-August following a joint investment by new landlords Liz McDonnell and Jamie Gowdy with Punch Taverns.
Liz and Jamie, who relocated from Warwickshire and have gained a wealth of experience running pubs, are very excited that the George Inn has now reopened.
Liz said: "We have been looking for the right pub for some time and when we saw the George Inn we could see the potential it has to offer."

The kitchen was refitted and a new local chef Teressa Phelps has been hired to cook up some home-cooked pub classics, including a 20oz mixed grill containing a steak, gammon, lamb, pork chop, kidney, liver and a spare rib among other ingredients.
The pub now boasts refurbished en-suite letting bedrooms, all finished to a high quality.
Liz said: "Since reopening, the pub's new look has been well received. Customers love the updated look that has kept its cosy and traditional feel with the open log fire.
"The food has taken off and the Sunday lunches are already proving very popular with locals. People like the fact that we offer great home-cooked food with a friendly, relaxed service, a home from home here in the Mendips.
"We have some great offers and plans such as two meals for £10 all day, every day. We hold bingo every other Wednesday evening, karaoke nights, live bands and house a skittle team in the alley.
"Our goal is to create a relaxed, warm, friendly, and most of all fun place to be and this has certainly been echoed in our customer feedback.
"We would like to thank everyone who has offered their support and custom and welcomed us. We look forward to the year ahead and our new life in Gurney Slade."
