14th Century Inn - Cate & Roland
Roland and Cate welcome you to The George Inn, Alfriston.
In August 1998 we had a dream of finding the perfect country Inn to run as a family. After over a year of searching for our ideal place, we found it here in Alfriston, and in October 1999 we bought The George Inn.
For the first three years we ran The George with the help of Roland’s sister Andrea and husband Anthony, however Anthony who hailed from Wellington, New Zealand, found the call of the Kiwis too strong and in November 2002, they returned home.
We now run the business on our own, ably assisted by some very loyal staff, and enjoy every minute of it.
We have three children, two at the village school, and as a family we all thoroughly enjoy living in such a beautiful part of the country. We’ve even realised some different dreams since being here; Roland can be seen on stage every year in the village pantomime (sometimes in a dress and wig!) and Cate was invited to join a Swing Band not long after arriving in the village, so it has turned out to be a very rounded life.
We have an extensive background in restaurants (we met through the trade!), but always working for large companies. This is our first venture of our own, and it really is a most refreshing and exciting challenge.
We believe in everyone who stays with us enjoying great hospitality in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.
We hope you enjoy your stay!
