The George in Brighouse is under new management from the beginning of this week. Previous manager Dave Harker, with his late wife Susan, has run the George for the last five years and have done an excellent job.

Business owner Matt Parkinson has acquired The Hare and Hounds at Great Horton in Bradford, another Enterprise Inns pub and has asked Dave to take charge up there.

“The Hare and Hounds is a big pub and is where I originally started off in the trade, running the pub with my sister 11 years ago,” said Matt.

“The Hare needs a good strong manager who has a proven ability to drive a business forward as well as serving up some good food. As a result I think this is the right job for Dave. I would like to thank Dave for all his hard work at the George and wish him good luck for the future at the new site.”

Dave had a farewell party last Friday with live music from the band Rock Steady and put on a free supper for everyone. Matt Parkinson has employed new manager Carol Lofthouse who took over on Monday and would like to welcome customers old and new to support her in her new role at The George, which will be undergoing further changes over the coming weeks.
