Jean Robinson was a textile technologist with the Wood Industries Research Association in Leeds when she and her new husband, together with her brother, made the life-changing decision to take on, unseen, The George in Upper Wharfedale. With no experience in either the licensing trade or in farming the 22 acres of moorland that came with the near derelict pub, Jean became the driving force behind the successful business, the basis for George and Me.After nine years the Inn was sold from under them, and Jean returned to her original work, rising to become Technical Director of an International Company. Now with her family and a menagerie of ex-racehorses, dogs and cats, she enjoys retirement in a village in East Yorkshire.
