The only remaining galleried coaching inn in London, The George now belongs to the National Trust. This London pub can be traced back to 1542, although an inn probably stood on the spot even earlier. Shakespeare lived and worked nearby, so it’s likely that he’d have been one of its patrons; he may even have played there.
There are several bars on the ground floor. The restaurant, which used to be the bedchambers in the old coaching days, offers an a la carte menu of traditional British cuisine.
