“By George! You've Found It.”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

In a place as dripping with history as the George, on the National Trust and a tourist destination for anyone interested in British or literary history, your expectations for food and beverage aren't very high - and you're quickly delighted to have your expectations surpassed. While you'll first visit this ancient gallery style, coaching inn to follow in the footsteps of Shakespeare and Marlowe, you'll come back again and again for the terrific selection of ales in great nick, and the exemplary pub fare like the fall-apart tender steak and ale pie or the roasted veggie sandwich on whole meal sourdough bread. A sprawling place with several bars and dining rooms, it's typical order-at-the-bar British style service, with a wonderfully large courtyard for enjoying an English summer day and knocking back a few too many ales or ciders. Lunch or dinner, and don't forget to try the fantastic sticky toffee pudding!

“Famous Gallery Pub”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Mainly visited as a member of the National Trust. Great food, bit pricey but would expect this in London. Service great. Why no discount for National Trust members?

“Historic Coaching Inn”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

The George is a beautiful, 17th century, galleried coaching inn. The only one left in London. It has a large courtyard which is great in warm weather and plenty of seating inside, in a variety of areas.The building is stunning both inside and out. It is very close to Borough Market and only a short stroll from the South Bank.
We have visited many times and the quality of food is great. I would particularly recommend the fish and chips, but there is a good choice of other dishes and the beer is good too.

“Is George in?”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

A great place to visit for good food which is reasonably priced with a good selection on the menu. Food service was ok but the staff could have tried to be a little more enthusiastic. Bar service was very efficient and again most prices were reasonable. Inside and outside areas had a nice atmosphere. Downside - Gents toilets. One cubicle did not lock and it could have been much cleaner. One soap dispenser was broken. Upside - sitting and enjoying yourselves whilst sitting in a little bit of history. Go this side of town and you will see great landmarks which are off the normally beaten track.

“Authentic Fish and Chips”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

The food was terrific, the atmosphere was charming, and the prices were reasonable. The only reason I am not giving a fifth star is that the staff was not helpful or particularly friendly, and the tables were filthy.
