About the Pub

Named after a former Archbishop of Canterbury, who was born in Guildford the George Abbot wa refurbished following flooding in early 2014. The pub retains its open plan, single-roomed layout but with some partitioning off into discreet drinking areas. Coming through the main door you are greeted by a knight in armour, who guards the way in! Or possibly guards the large basket of board games beside the door. The pub is decorated in a modern, traditional style with a slate floor and plenty of non-matching tables, for food which is served all day. Booking recommended for Sunday roast lunch. The marble topped bar, lit by fake oil lamps, sports a bank of six handpumps showcasing a significantly increased focus on real ales, with three guest beers, usually including beers from Wimbledon, complementing the regulars from the Greene King stable. Quiz night is Thursday. There is a warm and friendly atmosphere in this vibrant town centre venue.
