Fed up with celebrity chefs drizzling sauces over undercooked pieces of meat? I am!

I regularly dine out and am happy to share my restaurant experiences, and views on food, with you.

Restaurant

The George Inn
Borough High Street
Southwark
London

Phone:- 020 7407 2056

Overview

Eva and I were near London Bridge the other evening, and decided to try out the George Inn; a pub and restaurant.

The George is London's only surviving galleried coaching inn.

Ambience

The pub was rebuilt in 1676, and retains many of the original features. The ground floor is divided into several connecting bars. There's a wealth of lattice windows and oak beams.

The restaurant is on the top floor.

We had not booked. However, the restaurant was not busy; and the time was relatively early 9:15, the restaurant was not scheduled to close until 10:00.

I asked if we could get a table in ten minutes, allowing us time to have a drink downstairs.

I was told in rather a brusque manner that they were closing early that evening, as they would be opening early the next day. Given the “take it or leave it attitude” we decided to leave it, and went elsewhere.

Menu

I have no idea, as we did not get a chance to see it.

Service

Brusque and unwelcoming.

Food

N/A

Overall Opinion

Given the unwelcoming attitude, we do not recommend this establishment.
