Pub Layout

The St George is a traditional 1960’s build with a two bar operation. There is a well proportioned tap room/pub sports area with loose furniture and an ideally placed bar servery. Within this section is the pool table and darts oche and also hosting live televised sports viewing. To the rear of the pub is the large lounge which has comfortable mixed furniture with both traditional height wooden furniture and low settees. There is also a small raised section at the far end of the room which could double as a stage area. The lounge also has its own well stocked bar servery. The toilet facilities are located in the lower floor accessible by stairs between the two trading areas.  Externally to the front of the pub is a large paved area with picnic benches for alfresco drinking. Although the pub does not have it’s own car park, there is a public car park adjacent to the pub for the shopping centre.

Trading drinks focussed only with a mainstream draught keg offer of well known and respected brands, complimented with an excellent range of bottled beers and ciders. There is also a good range of wines, spirits and soft drinks. Additional income could be developed by adding a simple hot and cold “back bar” snack menu. The pub shows televised sport and has a program of weekend entertainment which is supported by pub teams.
