This is a nice pub, decent drop of beer and friendly locals. its a big place and has a lot of screens to watch the sport if that's your fancy. A few regulars in here, some will just come up and chat to you out of the blue, nice enough. There is one individual who is just worth avoiding. For some reason he now sits here all day and not the pub up the road. We know him as Walter Mitty. Every pub has one, don't let this put you off, its easy to avoid him in such a big place. The staff are really friendly, but a little blind to underage drinkers. good food, beer garden out front which is just been re done. All in all a good place to visit.

I'm not sure I've ever been to this area of London before, apart from possibly speeding by on the North Circular. The George is an imposing looking pub, next to an Odeon cinema. It was very busy early on Saturday evening, with crowds of people enjoying the late sunshine. Indoors were mainly people watching the late Premier League kick-off on the TVs. The ale selection was not the best - Old Golden Hen, Old Speckled Hen, London Pride, Doom Bar & Abbot. I opted for a soft drink after having sat in the sun at Upton Park for a few hours and feeling parched. Seems like a nice enough pub. Pity the ales weren't more adventurous.

Ah, The George. What used to be, and could again, be one of the best pubs in the area. Cheap enough beer, but ruined by the weekend door mugs and the underage drinkers, all buying one drink each on cards. Lose the jukebox, offers on tart fuel and it might just get back to it's former glory.

Good value beer but full of obviously underage drinkers and I am surprised the Police have not been in as this is a nice area and location. take the kids out and it would be a great pub. better than the others going east

Would be great pub if average age of clientele got above 13 at weekends
