Shipston-on-Stour Pub Named Warwickshire Pub of the Year 2022



The George Townhouse in the heart of Shipston-on-Stour is thrilled to announce that it has just been named the best pub in Warwickshire as part of the 2022 National Pub & Bar Awards.


Being named one of 94 pubs to claim a County Winner title across the UK, is no mean feat. More than 500 British pubs entered the 2022 Awards and each was judged on everything from interior design to outside space, customer service, menus, and drinks lists.


With consumer confidence on the rise and hospitality venues continuing their journey on the road to recovery, the National Pub & Bar Awards aims to put exemplary on-trade businesses across the UK in the national spotlight, showcasing the hospitality industry’s diversity, creativity, and vital importance to the UK economy.


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% of the time.” Our 94 County Winners are shining examples of that energy and creativity. They are what makes the pubs and bars of the UK so renowned. The team at the George Townhouse are to be congratulated.”

The George Townhouse is a Grade II listed building on Shipston’s High Street. Recently revamped interiors with restored Georgian features throughout offer contemporary comforts. These include a large, open bar with a wide range of cask ales, wines and specialty gin list, its 40-cover Pantry restaurant, the Carriage Room for private dining and the Garden Room overlooking a decked patio area. Overnight guests enjoy boutique hotel-style accommodation in its 15 beautifully refurbished en-suite bedrooms.
In response to the County Winners announcement on Wednesday 13th April, 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 for a second? time. 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.”


The George Townhouse is part of the Honeycomb Houses division of Brakspear’s nine managed inns.
