Who was St George?

St. George is the patron saint of England. His emblem, a red cross on a white background, is the flag of England, and part of the British flag. St George's emblem was adopted by Richard The Lion Heart and brought to England in the 12th century
St George was a brave Roman soldier who protested against the Romans' torture of Christians and died for his beliefs. The popularity of St George in England stems from the time of the early Crusades when it is said that the Normans saw him in a vision and were victorious.

The award-winning Farndon Boathouse, just outside of Newark, is quite rightly celebrating St George's Day, April 23, with a 4-course meal and arrival drink. Celebrate an evening of the best of England as they serve some of the country's best-loved exports, ending with the Beatles tribute band - The Fab 4.

You will enjoy local produce, traditional English recipes, dishes and drinks and I think I better book a table for mums birthday!
