Tristan O’Hana, editor of Pub & Bar magazine, which runs the National Pub & Bar Awards, said: “This is an industry that never stands still – the operators of the best pubs have to be at the top of their game 100 per cent of the time. Our 94 county winners are shining examples of that energy and creativity.

“The team at the George Townhouse are to be congratulated.”

The George Townhouse is a grade II listed building on Shipston’s High Street with revamped interiors and restored Georgian features throughout. Overnight guests enjoy boutique hotel style accommodation in its 15 beautifully refurbished en-suite bedrooms.

The George Townhouse’s General Manager Matthew Hiscoe said: “We are so excited to be named as the best pub in Warwickshire by the National Pub & Bar Awards 2022.

"We’ve worked hard to make the George the ‘go to’ pub locally, whether you want a quick drink, a leisurely meal or an overnight stay.”
