Directly facing the spectacular architecture of the Royal Courts of Justice, The George is a traditional English pub with a great reputation for serving fantastic real ale and quality home cooked food with outstanding service.

With 9 real ales available throughout the year and Cask Marque accreditation, The George is the place to come to sample this unique English tipple in all its glory. Sourcing almost exclusively from local London brewers, we like to showcase each brewers full range for a month a time.

We have a fully private function room with private bar and a capacity of 100+ people. Perfect for big sporting events, meetings and private parties. Along with full Sky and BT Sports and ‘The Funny Side’ comedy night, there’s always a good reason to come to The George.
