user reviews of the George Hotel, Derby

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

See my prediction of Jan 2008 - this has now happened, with the intervening 2 years having seen a tenant try, and fail, to make this pub pay despite paying extortionate rent and beer prices to the pubco (Admiral, who make the much-hated Enterprise Inns look positively benign).
Closure this time seems more likely to be permanent as the freehold is now on offer for anyone looking to take over a run-down, pub that has been neglected by the pubco and place it in direct competition with 4 nearby excellent real ale pubs and 4 less good ones - probably an unlikely prospect. Realistically, the last pint has probably been pulled at the George and a future as flats, a restaurant or a shop appears far more likely.

Has been 'refurbished' to look like a Greek Taverna of sorts complete with terracotta roof above the bar.

Has a single hand pump but god know's why as the baffled woman behind the bar had no idea what it was.

Has some different spirits but a bland array of nitro keg lager.

Appears to be popular for contractors for staying over @ �15 a night and a Middle Eastern band night on a Saturday...

Evidently sold off by Greene King when they bought Hardy + Hanson's, as part of their desire to get out of drinkers' pubs and into food-led ones. Always been a bit spit and sawdust, relying mainly on doing the cheapest beer of any of the pubs near the station; in terms of quality it's ok but overhadowed by the Station a few doors away and several others nearby.
Anyway, it's currently got a sign outside inviting people to 'run this pub' - tempting if it weren't for the aforementioned competition and the fact that the new owners are Admiral Taverns, famed for their ability to gouge landlords before selling their pubs for conversion to flats. Which, at best guess, will be the George's fate within 2 years.
