Former 'Hampshire Village Pub of the Year' seeking new owner

Specialist property adviser, Christie & Co is delighted to be marketing former Fuller’s ‘Hampshire Village Pub of the Year’ winner, The George Inn, in the picturesque country village of Vernham Dean.


The grade II listed 17th century inn in the heart of the village has a fantastic reputation for freshly cooked, locally sourced quality food and ales.  Also a four-time winner of the Hampshire Hospitality Award, The George Inn has an enviable reputation within the village and surrounding areas, which the current owners have created since they took on the property.

With period character features throughout, the site offers three bedroom owners’ accommodation, a bar snug and a 50 cover restaurant. Externally, there is bench seating to the front and an extensive rear enclosed beer garden and parking for 15 vehicles. 

This will be a charming acquisition for any buyer and an absolute must for anyone wanting an idyllic lifestyle pub in a pretty Hampshire village.

Richard Wood of Christie & Co’s Winchester office is handling the sale.  He comments: “This is a unique opportunity to not only acquire a beautiful pub, but also one that is profitable with a great reputation regionally. 

“There remains demand for freehold public houses in the area that are, first and foremost, profitable, whilst still aesthetically pleasing.  Appetite for food-led public houses with letting accommodation is being driven by private equity backed breweries looking to acquire substantial freehold assets within Hampshire, as well as small multiples and lifestyle operators returning to the market.”

Christie & Co is seeking offers of £595,000 plus VAT for the freehold interest.
