The Pub is the Hub for Vernham Dean Local

28th November 2012

Categories: Blog

The George Inn has won the award of 'The Pub is the Hub', which is part of the ‘Village of the Year in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight’ awards sponsored by Fullers Brewery. This friendly pub welcomes people of all ages, dogs and, even at times, lambs and piglets have been known to drop in. The award recognizes The George both for the activities that it puts on – such as quiz nights, sloe gin competitions and music nights – as well as its fine selection of real ales and excellent food.

In addition the pub does a lot for the village and is said to have 'put the heart back into the village'. It hosts the church's harvest festival auction and village carol singing, sponsor’s events for the local school, children's nursery and village societies, and runs a family fun-day and the bonfire night. The judges were especially impressed by the scarecrow competition that The George put on as part of the jubilee celebrations – more than 140 scarecrows were made by the villagers.

In addition, Vernham Dean won the ‘Best Small Village’, and then went on to win the ‘Best Overall Village in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight’ – a great achievement.
