Square Meal Review of The George & Vulture ?

Tourists in need of a Dickensian fix and pinstriped traditionalists of the carnivorous kind flock to this lost-in-time City chophouse, mentioned in The Pickwick Papers and nowadays a culinary redoubt for old-school meat-and-potatoes Britishness. The wainscot-panelled interior is a picture of sepia-tinted period charm, while the menu is consistent with the setting – think devilled whitebait or soup to start, followed by a mixed grill, Barnsley chop or perhaps Cumberland sausage with mash and onion gravy, plus hot puds and savouries to round things off in thoroughly Beeton-esque style. Wine choice is limited, but if the house offerings aren’t to your taste, there’s always beer or cider from Sam Smith’s. You’ll Google in vain for a website or any means of booking online: ‘We don’t have anything electronic here,’ admit the staff cheerfully.

  1. London has many wonderful shops and restaurants that are hidden away in little side streets. Finding them can be part of the fun of walking around London. Unfortunately, The George and Vulture* located in a small alleyway by Cornnhill (near Bank) is not so wonderful. I don't have any problem with the small and cramped nature of the place - that's just how old buildings are. I also don't have a problem with the efficient staff that some people would interpret as rudeness. What I do have a problem with however is the horrible overpriced food they serve. Let's take a look...
