The George in Bexley has undergone sympathetic refurbishments, and re-opens on Friday

A Bexley pub dating back to the 18th century is re-opening its doors after closing for refurbishments.

The George, on Bexley High Street has been redecorated with new lights, furniture, toilets and paint work, but has tried to maintain its nearly 300 year old character.

Justin Wratten, pub manager of the George, said: “Me and the team are really looking forward to showing off the restoration of the George which has been careful to keep the pub’s charm.

As part of the redecoration, the George will also be introducing a new menu and selection of cask ales and craft beers.

The Greene King chain pub now also has step free access, and Greene King’s managing director of local divisions Anthony Hemmerdinger is excited about the reopening saying: “It is always exciting when the doors to a newly transformed pub are once again opened to our customers.

“This refurbishment is a change to the George, but one I am sure the local people of Bexley will thoroughly enjoy.”

THe George re-opens this Friday, with food and beer tasting planned.
