Cracking pub, once you know it's there.

Just off Charing cross road, down a grotty little side street that smells of wee and is opposite a huge building site sits the Royal George.

From the outside it doesn't look very nice or look like anyone ever goes in there. But then you'd be wrong.
Inside is a medium sized bar with plenty of seating serving a smashing selection of booze. The staff are like their clients, slight bohemian and quirky and they know their you a run down of whats best and what they like.
Downstairs is a function room/extra seating that on a wednesday evening becomes the base for their 'Kare-Uke' Ukulele nights

If you can get past its exterior and its location its a relaxing well stocked treat

Small pub located in a charmless post-war building located at the end of Goslett Yard, a short side street on the west side of Charing Cross Road. Very cramped inside, especially during the regular live music events, meaning that there is often a large crowd outside on the pavement. However, there is also a downstairs bar, so you wonder why they don't make more use of it. Two handpumps, but only one in use when I last visited (and this didn't even have the clip fixed to the handle) but this did offer a decent pint of Adnams Stout. The chalkboard outside did also proclaim that they have 22 (bottled) ciders available.

The beauty of this place is the location for sure. Nice staff too.

This is a pub well worth avoiding, the service is very slow with unmanned wasted bar space downstairs. They have a reasonable choice of beer but get so busy at times it's not worth the wait. They have a late licence and it gets busier than they can handle, with people trying to get a last drink before heading home.
The worst thing about this pub is the staff's attitude when it comes to closing time, as there's an outside areaat the front fo the pub ie: the street (that is if you want to stand and watch people queing up to get into G.A.Y.) they are very pushy when it comes to letting you cross the premesis boundry when trying to use the loo before going home. I was pushed off the premesis even though I had been drinking there for an hour and a half and told, 'Were closed, you can't come back in.'
When this happened to a friend of mine a few months later the staff not only kept him off the premesis they also told him to urinate in the street! Which I think is a public order offence. A bad attitude towards customers means they lose them. They should sort their act out and stop being so offensive.
