The George Hotel's Fascinating History in Penrith

Step into history at The George Hotel, Penrith! Since opening its doors in 1597, our hotel has been a symbol of timeless hospitality. Today, we continue this proud tradition, welcoming guests to experience the charm of centuries past while enjoying modern comforts. Join us for a stay that bridges the gap between history and luxury!


Welcome to BAR 1597, one of Penrith’s newest places to visit.


We offer a range of cocktails, lagers and real ales from local suppliers, including Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery,

Ennerdale Brewery, Bowness Bay Brewery and Great Corby Brewery.


Our industrial outlay of the interior gives a modern yet rustic feel with a warm and welcoming atmosphere with

a hidden secret courtyard which can be accessed through the main bar area, with covered huts and heated seating area.  

It’s a perfect area to wind down after a long day at work and de-stress with a nice glass of locally sourced gin or one

of our many local ales.


We are proud to announce that we offer a CAMRA Member discount of 10% on all ALE purchased with production of a valid CAMRA card. Please ensure to ask staff when ordering and to show your card to receive the discount.


Looking forward to welcoming you to BAR 1597 soon.
