The George IV Birkenshaw, closed due to the COVID pandemic

After much soul searching and deliberation.
We are not reopening the pub. We have had an amazing 17 years and want to thank all of our customers who have supported us. As our customers are well aware we are not getting any younger and Covid has shown us that we need to take a step back and concentrate on our health.
We have taken over The Snack Shop in Drighlington, this is a way for us to continue trading with greatly reduced hours and hopefully see you all for some of our great value home cooked food.
We want to thank you all for your continued support and will miss you all greatly.
As for the future of the pub watch this space. This isn’t the end for The George and the pub will be reopening at some point in the near future.
I’m sure you can all appreciate Covid is not something any of us could have foreseen or planned for, but it has shown us personally that a slower pace of life is needed.
Much love Sue, Rob, Sam and the Team.
