Lovejoys at The George’s – Top 5 drinks to enjoy our garden

Is there anything that says British summer time more than that moment of enjoying a delicious cold drink in a beer garden whilst the sun is shining? 

The George at Kelvedon has the enviable position of boasting a beautiful and spacious beer garden that enjoys views over the Essex countryside. To celebrate the arrival of spring, we’ve chosen our top 5 drinks to enjoy in the beer garden.


Aperol Spritz 

Anyone that has enjoyed this classic Italian aperitif will understand its appeal. Famously enjoyed throughout the Amalfi coast and canal-side in Venice, the Aperol Spritz has recently found a huge fan-base in the UK. The George uses only genuine Aperol and fine Italian prosecco to bring an authentic taste of Italy to our Essex countryside beer garden.

The George Star Martini

We, at The George at Kelvedon, are very proud of the creation of the ‘George Star Martini’ so it is of no surprise that it features in our favourite drinks to enjoy in the beer garden this summer. The twist on the classic cocktail is a combination of vanilla vodka, passion fruit liqueur, passion fruit purée, lime and that all important shot of prosecco. The George Star Martini is a real taste of decadence.



A British summer time classic, there is a reason why the much-loved Pimms and Lemonade never goes out of fashion. That unique taste that can’t be matched combined with refreshing lemonade and fresh-fruit have earnt a place in our hearts, and our beer garden, forever.

An ice-cold beer

The drink the beer garden was named after. Many will argue that nothing beats an ice cold beer on summer’s day. We serve a number of premium lagers, ales and craft beers to be enjoyed in our beer garden.


A pale Rosé

Although a crisp white wine may be the classic choice, refreshing pale rosé is growing in popularity. 

Whether you prefer white, rosé or indeed red, Lovejoys at The Geroge has an excellent wine list for you to enjoy.

We would love to hear what your favourite is, or better still, see you enjoying it in our beer garden! Lovejoys at The George has a full and varied drinks menu that includes cocktails, spirits, wine and beer. Or if gin is your tipple then there are 13 to choose from on the menu. Prefer the non-alcoholic option? A full range of mocktails and soft-drinks including a non-alcoholic beer means that you needn't miss out. 

Plenty of outside drinking and dining options, views of the stunning Essex countryside, a unique ambience and friendly staff mean you can enjoy summer in style at Lovejoys at The George. Plus we’re dog and family friendly! Book your table now or call 01376 561797.
