The pub lies in the beautiful village of Morton On-Swale a short distance from Leaming Bar & Northallerton. The village is an old farming village with arterial routes from Leaming Bar to Northallerton so makes for a busy road and lots of passing trade. The biggest Acorn categories within the 10 mile radius drive time are Affluent Achievers followed by Comfortable Communities.

Pub Layout

The pub enjoys a large open plan trading style main bar area, with a separate cosy snug featuring a log burner for those colder days. Both are serviced by the main bar servery. The pub also benefits from having a large restaurant/function room. The toilets can be accessed from the main bar, which also leads to a large catering kitchen and dry store. There is also a ground floor cellar to the rear and extra dry storage. To the rear of the property are three high standard letting rooms with separate access through the beer garden.

The Old Royal George enjoys a main road location and as such enjoys a lot of passing trade.  This gives an opportunity for the many passing camper vans to stay overnight on the large car park and use the facilities of the pub too.  It currently trades for the local community with pub darts teams and live sports coverage through Sky TV.

There is scope for regular activities like quiz nights and live entertainment to be introduced alongside the current regular trade. The pub currently operates at an approximate 70:30 wet/dry split, with the food offer based around a good home-cooked “pub favourites” menu.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation consists of three large bedrooms, large living room, family bathroom, kitchen and office.

Letting Rooms

The pub has three ground floor letting rooms to the rear of the business which are detached from the main building and self-contained.
