The George is an old coaching inn in Southwark with a huge courtyard garden that’s likely to be mobbed on nearly any day of the year. It’s a nice pub with some okay food, but it really comes into its own on summer evenings when local office workers and traders join tourists, and anyone else who happens to be in the area, for a massive open air party fuelled by beer and dirty fries. Warning: there might be Morris dancers.
