The George Piercebridge

The George Piercebridge

The quiet village of Piercebridge in County Durham is the setting for The George. It's a lovely old building, centuries old, right on the banks of the River Tees so it makes a wonderful backdrop for romantic wedding photos, but it's also a good one for nice, relaxed business meetings and events for up to 180 people. Conferences, product launches, exhibitions, training days, awards ceremonies, drinks receptions, parties, dinners, and those smaller executive meetings will all work here. It's a good place and the countryside is inspiring.

The George dates back to the 16th century and there's still plenty of evidence of that – thick stone walls, big open fireplaces, exposed ceiling timbers, and wooden panelling, and it all goes nicely with that eclectic look that's rather cool right now – you know, a bit of velvet, aged leather, flock wallpaper, wooden floors and little lamps dotted about. It works, it looks good and the ambience is very welcoming; your guests probably won't want to go home.

There are three event spaces at The George; the Ballroom is the biggest, with river views, a private bar, a stage and a sprung dance floor. You can have a great time in there; it seats up to 150 folk or holds 180 for a party or networking reception. The Pavilion has capacity for 80 standing and 60 seated, and the Library is perfect for those quieter affairs and meetings for up to 15.

You'll be well looked after by the friendly team at The George and whether you want a three-course banquet, a buffet or a working lunch, you'll be well fed on tasty home cooked food. Wifi comes free with the room hire, and AV equipment can be arranged to suit your event.

If you have guests who need a bed for the night, fear not. There are 33 gorgeous rooms here, all individually designed, with en suite facilities, complimentary wifi and hospitality trays. There’s the Riverside Restaurant for dining, or an all-day menu in The Snug, and if it's a tad on the chilly side, they can warm their toes in front of the open fire.

The George is close to the A1 and has a big car park with space for around 100 cars.
