|Got to come here at least once in your life.|
A living piece of history.
Sadly, the beer is usually ghastly. Although on my last visit - the nutty hen was in good condition.

|Not sure that a summer Saturday early evening is the best way to judge The George.|
Packed out (more so out than in). Reasonable choice of real ales (not all Greene King) but at a price. Rather liked the off-sales place where you got served through a window.
It is an historic pub, I suppose we all ought to go there once.

|Historic and a worthy tick on the bucket list, but horrifically expensive. Had a standard lager for £5.30 (!) before making for the Market Porter across the road for a good pint at £1.50 less. It was nice enough, but I won't be back in a hurry. Sam Smith's don't cash in on the stories their places tell. Why have they felt the need to here?|

|A quick pint in the famous George, several years since I was here but even though the outside area was packed it's always worth a stop here for a pint.|
Barely a spare seat at any of the large amount of bench tables but the inside bar was pretty quiet and very easy to get a pint.
6 pumps offering a mix of ales however 2 had just run out so my choice was easy, a pint of Southwark Harvard, a new beer for me from this very local brewery. A decent pint but pretty strong for its %.
Not much more to say about this pub, the interior is superb as is the history, a bit too touristy? Of course it is but that's never been a problem for me.
For anyone reading this that's never visited before then make an effort when in the area and get it 'ticked'.

|A rare historic survival of London's old galleried coaching inns, The George is, i'm afraid, a rather poorly-run pub in a fantastic building. It is well worth visiting in order to experience having a drink in a 17th century building. Beer and food is generally OK, but service can range from cheerful and friendly, to surly and unhelpful. What I found unforgivable on one visit in winter was the bitter cold in one of the bars – the National Trust which owns the pub really must look to its laurels about this kind of thing. A pub should be a warm, welcoming, happy place where you get the impression they are glad to see you. When I was there last, a group of tourists were shivering with the cold. Not good. To sum up, then, rather like Dr Johnson, I'd say it is worth seeing, but not worth going to see.|
