The George

The George

Downstairs, The George is a buzzy, atmospheric boozer, but upstairs you’ll find a number of stylish private rooms for hire. Our favourite is the Dining Room, decked out in forest green paint, with period features intact. The food is excellent too, with classic pub grub taken up a notch.
