We enjoyed our quick visit to the George. We had a drink and a nose around the three bars. We loved the feeling of real history within its walls, the parliament bar being particularly atmospheric. Can't comment on the food but the welcome was warm...More

We called in for a drink mid-afternoon. The building is amazing, the pub seems less than amazing. The bar area was busy with people waiting to order. The one barman went to get a manager to process a refund for a disgruntled customer who had...More

Great pub near Borough Market with loads of outdoor seating. Claims to be the oldest pub in London (1580's I believe?) and is loaded with English charm. There's a restaurant upstairs, and an outdoor bar service window as well. (as the inside bar can get...More

Hi James thanks for a great review. Yes we are one of the oldest surviving London Inns dated as far back as the 1670's. We love hanging in our courtyard and gazing at history. So glad you did too. Don't be a stranger and look...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
