About The George

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 Pig and Goose at The George and the Horace Walpole private dining room. 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 Pig & Goose, 1st Floor restaurant and lounge

The brand new Pig & Goose restaurant and lounge upstairs at The George is open Monday to Saturday and offers an exciting, modern British menu, using only the finest seasonal, local produce. You can expect dishes such as Rose Veal tartar with celeriac and quails egg, suckling pig porchetta, smoked ham hock and white bean ragout and a wild rabbit pithivier, creamed parsnips, braised cabbage and cider sauce. Alongside this is our extensive and thoughtfully selected wine cellar specialising in old world wines with a particular focus on French classics.

We have a comfortable lounge bar where you can enjoy a quite drink after work away from the hustle and  bustle of the pub, an aperitif before heading into the dining room or retire after a relaxing evening to enjoy some of our fine whiskies, vintage ports or cognacs.

Private dining in the Horace Walpole Room

Adjacent to the Pig & Goose restaurant we have the exclusive Horace Walpole private dining room, with a stunning view of the Courts. The room can be hired for meetings, drinks or a seated dinner for up to 10 people with your own private waiter. When you visit, our team is always on hand to show you around and talk to you about the variety of events we can offer in the Horace Walpole room.

Classic traditional British Pub

Our bar is open 7 days a week with a fresh, exciting, classic British menu offering such delights as Hampshire game terrine with beetroot relish, Steamed mussels with shallots, parsley and ale and Barbary duck shepherd’s pie with Autumn greens. The bar features a great range of craft beers, 9 rotating local and national real ales and a carefully crafted wine and spirit selection. Perfect for casual lunch dining, after work drinks, and a weekend meal away from the hustle and bustle of the West End.

Whatever the occasion, the George on the Strand will be able to offer something for everyone, whether it is a romantic meal with a loved one, a birthday celebration in the bar, or a business meeting in the Horace Walpole private dining room, the team look forward to welcoming you.


Both the Pig  & Goose and George menus offer the freshest seasonal produce. Our menus will change with the seasons as we work closely with some of London’s finest foods suppliers. We use James Knight of Mayfair for the freshest fish, Select Meats who source all meats from around the home counties and Natoora for our fruit and vegetables, with these great fresh food suppliers you can expect only the best quality to be served.


Both bars are fully stocked with a wide range drinks. We have 20 different whiskies, a great selection of London gins and most importantly we have 9 rotating local ales, using some of the finest breweries in London; Trumans, London Fields, Portobello, Twickenham and many more. All of these ales have the certificate of excellence  Cask Marque.

We have a number of interesting craft lagers from America; Fordham Route 1 Session IPA,  Dominion Oak Barrel Stout from Denver, Goose Island Honkers ale from Chicago, Anchor Steam Beer from San Francisco. Then there is the great selection from some of London’s craft brewers; Trumans Pale Ale, Camden Unfiltered and Camden Gentleman’s Wit. If you have any suggestions  for  your preferred ales or craft lagers, please have a chat with Jon and we will see if we can source them and have them available for you.
