George Inn

Address: George Inn Yard, 77 Borough High Street, Southwark, London SE1 1NH
Telephone: 020 7407 2056

The George is an historic old coaching inn close to London Bridge stations. It’s obviously one of the oldest buildings in the area and because of this attracts a lot of tourists. Not surprisingly the prices reflect that.

But the George is also extremely popular with office workers too and you’re more than likely to find people sitting at the tables outside – seemingly whatever the weather.

The various rooms inside are generally small which makes for a cosy and friendly atmosphere. On my last visit the bar staff were friendly and efficient and I didn’t have to wait long to get served. However I should point out that it’s not always like that…

The beers selection is varied and the quality is pretty good.

Food is available but I’ve never eaten here.

There are some great pub in the London Bridge area – for example the Market Porter and the Rake. The George is certainly worth an experience – if only for the spectacle. But the touristy nature of the place and the prices put me off and I seldom visit this pub.

    This is quite a nice old establishment. However, the lamb steak that I had there was diabolically tough and utterly tasteless. When I raised the matter with a member of the staff, she would do nothing–not even offer me a complimentary cup of coffee.
