A quintessential 'spoons with the added advantage of a decent ale range.
Beers on when we visited were: GK Abbot and Ruddles Best, Doom Bar, Purity UBU, Lacons Encore, Titanic Iron Curtain and Wolf Lupus Lupus and Edith Cavell. Aside from the usual dross a very good selection and it was well kept on our visit.
It clearly works as it was busy on our midweek visit and with beer like this I can understand why.

This is a fairly typical recently opened small town Spoons that although still called the George Hotel is not being used as one. It opened in 2010 and the layout is fairly typical for a newer spoons with seated eating areas as you enter and the bar area at the back of the building. There is a paved patio to the left.
It's all generally a bit more plush than most older city Spoons. I saw no obvious signs of the celebrated daytime brigade.
The bar has two sets of five hand pumps which on my visit had GK Ruddles doubled up, Abbot, Doom Bore, London Pride, Oakham Bishop's Farewell, Adnam's Bitter "Available Soon", Adnam's Ghost Ship, Topaz Gold & Mosaic. There was an Adnam's Bank holiday "festival" going which isn't really what it may seem for as far as I know current Adnam's ales are available to order in any Southern Spoons whether they are on the current guest list or not. Anyway, I went with the flow and tried the Topaz Gold (£2.20) which was in good condition but had a slight haze.
Overall this is a better than average Spoons and is well worth a look. It was listed in the 2015 GBG but not in the new 2016 one.

'Spoons have done a good job here,retaining a lot of the original interior layout of this country town hotel thus avioding the drinking barn feel of a lot of their outlets.Either side of the front door are two sizeable lounges while to the right handside of the staircase to the loos is a more intimate area while beyond this there is an section of sofas infront of a wood burner,not operational on my trip.The bar itself is at the rear of the building in an extension which has retained the brick surrounds and side windows of what must have been the exit to the garden ,and natural light streams in through a roof light.The decor in the bar area is less trad with high tables and chairs and chrome handpulls,but the whole interior is carpeted throughout giving a smart appearance,further enhanced by a good amount of wood panneling.There is a modest paved courtyard to the left of the building for al fresco drinking or smoking.
The 10 handpumps included two real ciders and a perry,GK Abbott and Ruddles Bitter and 5 ales from the recent beer festival selection.My Piston Broke from Box Steam Brewery was in good nick,other beers looked in fine fettle and some care does seem to be taken in this 2012 GBG entry.
Definitely one of the better 'spoons,I would have no qualms about returning in future.
