The George Townhouse, Shipston-on-Stour

A handsome restored Georgian boutique hotel and restaurant with stylish al fresco garden. Feels like popping into a very stylish friend's house and staying in one of their 15 bedrooms!

The George reopened in April 2016, following a major refurbishment by owners, Brakspear. Located in the historic centre of the picturesque Cotswolds market town of Shipston-on-Stour, in Warwickshire, the Inn’s Pantry restaurant offers a superb range of British classics.
