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 five 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.
Sue, our manager, and her team look forward to welcoming you here
at The George at Burpham in the near future!

So that's where the paw-prints came from!
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.
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. Come and see for yourself!
