et in the picturesque village of Burpham in the South Downs National
Park, just over two miles from Arundel, The George at Burpham is a traditional 17th century country pub which has been providing hospitality
to villagers and visitors for over three hundred years.
Following refurbishment in 2013, the pub now has an inviting contemporary interior and serves seasonal, locally-sourced, freshly-cooked food, ales, wines and spirits. This pub, now locally owned, aims to live up to the ambition . . .
"By the locals, for the locals, of the locals - and a very warm welcome to everyone." . . . including muddy-booted walkers and well-behaved dogs!
It seems that our efforts are being recognised not only by our customers' feedback but also by Sawday's bestowing us with a 'Community Pub Award'. We have also been included in the current AA Guide and Michelin 'Eating Out in Pubs' guide - and, based on customers' reviews, TripAdvisor have now awarded us their 'Certificate of Excellence' for four years running.
In 2015 we won the award for Sussex Life's 'Best Community Pub' category. Last year we were nominated and made it to the final three in their awards for the 'Best Pub in Sussex 2016'.
Part of our purpose, being at the centre of the community, is to use our position to raise money for local charities. In our first year we raised over £2000 for Chestnut Tree House; last year we raised over £7,995 for four local charities. In 2016 we added The Lavinia Norfolk Centre at Angmering School, and our hope is to expand our fundraising success even further this year.
Martin, our manager, and his team look forward to welcoming you here
at The George at Burpham in the near future!

SPRUCE-UP . . .
Whilst maintaining its long established charm, The George emerged
from a winter refurbishment on 13th January looking years younger!
A new colour scheme, new architectural features and a multitude of
new accessories were part of a makeover that also included practical improvements such as new seat covers, newly polished flooring and additional state of the art kitchen equipment.

Don't forget that it's Mothering Sunday on 26th March! Treat that special person in your family to a lovely meal at The George. We tend to get booked up very quickly on such occasions, so maybe book
on the Saturday . . .
or the Monday?
One of our great assets is our sizeable car park just past the pub, next door to the cricket field and pavilion. We encourage all customers to use this rather than parking on the street, to ease possible congestion in the village.
This year we are holding our annual Gala Charity Evening on Wednesday March 8th, when we pass on the charity donations we have received from our customers over the past year to our chosen charities. If you are looking to take part or even if you are unable to attend, then you could help us by donating an auction item to aid us toward beating last year's grand total of £7,955. A silent auction will be held to boost the fund total - prizes will include:
A modernist painting of 'SS Great Britain' with the port of Bristol behind;
A piece of artwork by Mike Payne (his fourth year of donating, for which we are most grateful);
Two hospitality tickets to a premiership match at Twickenham Stoop.
A special menu will be featured on the evening so be sure to book your table as soon as possible.
