The George Public House is a Victorian reincarnation of a 15th century coffee house located at the meeting point of the Strand and Fleet Street, directly facing the spectacular architecture of the Royal Courts of Justice and a 10 minute walk from the West End. In the Autumn of 2014, The George underwent an extensive and considerate refurbishment of the ground floor bar and first floor dining room. This saw the creation of an elegant and sophisticated restaurant; The George. We have carefully retained the original features of this historic pub and have tastefully added our own stamp while keeping a traditional feel throughout.

The restaurant upstairs at The George is open all week and offers an exciting, modern British menu, using only the finest seasonal, local produce, as well as fantastic roasts on Sundays.
We are currently offering the same menu in both the pub and the restaurant.

    A great gastro pub with high quality food. Quieter restaurant upstairs. Service can be a little hectic especially when seated downstairs if busy, however staff are friendly. Allows dogs when seated downstairs.

    It really wasn’t set up for dinners, we were the only people eating and food wasn’t great. It was very noisy & more after work than pre theatre. Can’t fault the waitress who served us, she was the only bright spot.

    Brilliant little find, the food was wonderful, ambiance just right and staff super helpful. Highly recommended with a caution to only visit at weekends as I fear it being directly opposite the RCJ, would make it very popular during the week. We visited on a Sunday and it was great

    One of the best Sunday roasts I have had with special mention to the gravy and carrots. The only regret was that we booked the upstairs restaurant but because of a wedding party we were seated in the bar downstairs which for us being of the older generation it was a little noisy, but food quality was excellent. Thanks

    Decent food but a bit disappointing.based on prior reviews. Typical Sunday roast but nothing special. Good ambiance and friendly staff. I guess I was just left wanting a bit more.
