It's been over 10 years since I was last in Alton and that was before I started recording my visits on BITE. But yesterday, I was back to do a couple of pubs I'd missed previously. The George was my first stop and it is seemingly a favourite of the local CAMRA group and with good reason too. This was my favourite pub of the day in Hampshire. It's a lively place, popular with drinkers, diners and families. The interior is quite modern. But with the gents being outside, there are a few clues to the fact that this is a much older establishment. The ale range was the most diverse we found during the day. Sharp's Sea Fury is a rather unusual beer to have as a mainstay. But here it is the regular ale. Guests on yesterday were Itchen Valley Pure Gold & Guy PA, Brains Café Phoenix & Marston's Saddle Tank. I opted for the Café Phoenix, which was also my favourite beer of the day. Just one small criticism - there is no real cider on draught (I didn't check the fridges for bottles as I was happy enough with my beer selection). But seemingly very few pubs serve real cider in this part of Hampshire.

Nice traditional pub - so traditional that it's frequented by several dogs, and the loos are outside! But a good selection of ales, and excellent food reasonably priced, so we stayed for a second round...

Spent a few days in Alton last month. The George was recommended to us by the owner of our b and b. We were not disappointed, returning twice more. Dinner was delicious with the wild mushroom pie for me, the chicken, bacon and avocado salad for my wife. We sat in the back garden while the sun went down enjoying our meal, our pints of St. Austell Tribute and the idyllic locale. When I went in for another round, the gent behind the bar offered me a small pour of a local brew - Itchen Valley's Belgarum, several of which then put the exclamation point on a great meal. We were so pleased that we returned for lunch the next day (sausages and mash; slider trio -more Belgarum) and a farewell pint the day after that just before catching the train back to London. The service was fine, the staff very friendly, the atmosphere a very nice mix of hip, traditional and comfortable. Highly recommended.
