I love bringing family and friends to The George Inn when they manage to visit London. The building is beautiful and gives a wonderful sense of London's rich history - always a winner for the Americans! The outdoor seating space is great, the staff are friendly, and there are always a couple of decent beers to fit your mood.

Probably the most popular bar on Borough High Street, the George is always packed with locals whenever the weather's nice enough to drink outside (which, in this country, is pretty much all the time).

The whole place comes into it's own when the sun is shining though. There's plenty of seating outside but it does get busy and there's a cool balcony which is perfect for people watchingmore
