The George Bar & Dining opened on Anzac Day 2012 following a major refurbishment of The Lake George Hotel.

We are located at 20 Gibraltar Street Bungendore. The Hotel itself is one of Australia's oldest continuously licensed hotels, opening in 1838 as the Harp Hotel. This was just a year after Bungendore itself was established in 1837. Later in the 1800's it was also known as "Chinners".

Our reputation as family orientated restaurant sees us well patronised and we strongly recommend booking via our contact form or by calling on 02 6238 0986. The GB&D has seating for 120 inside with further outdoor seating in our beer garden for approximately another 100. The beer garden also features a children’s play area. (Please note children should be supervised at all times)

In the summer months our Beer Garden quickly fills over the weekend with families keen to enjoy our relaxed and informal surroundings. Tables in the garden are not generally reservable and are available on a first come first served basis.

During the summer months we also have acoustic musicians/bands performing from 2pm on Sunday afternoons.

To comply with the updated Smoke Free Environment Act. From July 6th 2015 all areas of the GB&D are non-smoking including the beer garden.

The George is an independently run hotel & restaurant and not part of a chain or national group. While we would love to be able to donate to every charity request we receive; its simply not possible to do so. We generally support local charities and organisations from Bungendore and its surrounds. We also support the Black Dog Institute.

The Black Dog Institute is a non for profit organisation and world leader in the diagnosis, treatment & prevention of mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder.
