About The Pub

This National Trust-owned coaching inn is one of London’s oldest pubs. The George is famous for being the only still-standing galleried coaching inn in London. History oozes from every crack and corner of this storied coaching inn. The outside, which features a partial timber frame façade overlooking a cobbled courtyard, is attractive, but it is the interior that really steals the show. Inside, the pub is something of a maze with several distinct but interconnected bar areas, where original features stand alongside more modern fittings. Look for old fireplaces, panelling and crooked and warped wood fittings that contrast sharply with the more uniform, machine-milled beams more commonly seen these days. On the ground level is the Parliament Bar, which was once a waiting room for passengers, while the upstairs galleried part of the building – now a restaurant – would once have comprised bedrooms. During fair-weather summer days, the benches and tables in the courtyard at the front of the pub quickly fill with guests soaking up the sunshine. These days, The George attracts a varied array of guests, ranging from the Friday night after-work crowd to tourists who come to absorb the old-world atmosphere, which is reminiscent of London in ages past. The George is located in Southwark, just south of the River Thames, not far Borough Market. Take the Tube or train to London Bridge and make the short stroll from there. The George is tucked away from the people-packed Borough High Street, and is found down a passageway marked by a wrought iron arch bearing the pub’s name.
