The George Inn sits in the heart of the small village of St Mary Bourne just five miles northeast of Andover. The village has a population of over 1,300 and most locals commute, heading off to railway stations five or more miles away. Just as many drive to Newbury, Whitchurch, Basingstoke, Winchester or Andover. There is also one of the world’s leading watercress companies, Vitacress, located just outside the village. In addition, the village has a primary school, Surgery & Pharmacy, Post Office and a partly volunteered shop.
