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 warm hospitality to villagers and visitors for over 300 years.
Following refurbishment in 2013, the pub now has an inviting contemporary interior and serves seasonal, locally-sourced, freshly-cooked food with fine 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 five years running.
In 2015 we won the award for Sussex Life's 'Best Community Pub' category. The next 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 £2,000 for Chestnut Tree House; last year we raised over £7,000 for our 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.
Jason, our general manager, and his team look forward to welcoming you here at The George in the near future!
Having received TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence for
five years in a row, we are now
in their Hall of Fame!
