Bulldog British to the core, The George & Vulture keeps the home fires burning with a nostalgia-drenched menu aimed at the City's alpha males and doting tourists. Business is brisk and you may have to share a table, but the cooking is generally sound – even if the kitchen has a habit of piling on the protein (‘a sausage with your steak, sir'). Mighty roasts, mixed grills, pork chops with apple rings and other standards are the meat of the matter – although the choice also extends to potted shrimps, poached halibut and calorific hot puds. To drink, order very palatable Sam Smith's beer or dip into the short wine list. Immortalised in Dickens' The Pickwick Papers, this old patriot still knows how to put on the antiquated style – no wonder affectionate readers dub it ‘one of a kind'.
