Southwark was a major terminus for the southern England coach trade and the George is an amazing survivor of those days, being the last galleried coaching inn in London. However, it is but a fragment now as it used to extend round four sides of a courtyard. Most spaces in the pub have modern fittings but the first bar you come to has some of the oldest woodwork purpose-fitted for a pub anywhere. Other outstanding features are the mighty fireplace and glazed-in servery with (now disused) Victorian handpumps in the “cash-register” style. The tap room houses a “Parliament Clock” from the days when owning your timepiece got you taxed. The pub is now owned by the National Trust.
