Generous George (Marston's)

About the Pub

With its conversion to the Greenfinch in late 2012, it is now in the Marston’s “Two for One” stable, in late 2016 it was re-branded once more, this time becoming a "Generous George" house. This is a warm and comfortable dining pub that features an ‘L’ shaped bar, off which radiate a variety of drinking and eating areas. The whole is decorated using pleasing, neutral tones which are punctuated by the odd splash of colour to highlight chimney breasts and other significant features. The front part has plenty of space and extends to the right into a conservatory. Another conservatory is set to the left giving a good view of the outside drinking area, whilst to the rear is a lower level room that often plays host to large groups of people dining. This grand house is set in extensive grounds and does well from the food. Overall, quite a plush affair with many folk taking advantage of the gardens when the weather is good. The guest beers are from the Marston’s range, so will often be Burton Bitter and Jennings Cumberland. History: A conversion of a Victorian mansion that occurred some years ago. Allegedly built as consulting rooms or a small hospital by a doctor, for his two daughters who failed to qualify; it was sold to Wolverhampton brewer Banks's and eventually became a large, multi-roomed public house called the Four in Hand.
