MORE THAN JUST A VILLAGE PUB

At the Heart of
Egerton Village.

Dating back to the 16th century, The George has always been at the heart of Egerton and the surrounding villages, rural communities proud of their corner of The Garden of England. Today it’s a village with a strong community spirit and The George hosts events and get togethers celebrating our community.

A PROUD AVIATION HISTORY

The local watering hole for WWII pilots.

During World War 2 Headcorn was home to an airbase used by Canadian, American and British pilots. Even closer to Egerton was the now defunct RAF Lashenden which has returned to agricultural land. The charismatic pilots saw The George as their “local”, with beams in the bar adorned with their signatures.

Today we celebrate that proud history and The George is part of the Aero Legends group through which you can experience the thrill of a flight in one of lovingly restored RAF spitfires.
