  • Visitor Information

Sitting at the heart of Bethnal Green Road, The Old George is a beautifully restored London boozer, originally built in the 1700s. With a large emphasis on real ales, a warm welcome and regular special nights - from pub quiz to folk lessons - it's a charming pub with floral and velvet sofas, teapots serving as flowerpots, and a large beer garden to the rear that gets the sunshine throughout the day.
