A New, Old-School Pub With A Michelin-Star Chef

The George isn’t exactly new.

In fact, no-one’s really sure exactly when it was even built.

But it’s just had what surely must be one of the most significant upgrades in its history: it’s been taken over by the JKS Group. And anyone who’s been to the other glittering gems in their restaurant portfolio – Gymkhana, BAO, Lyle’s, BiBi, etc. – will understand why that’s such a big deal.

They’ve given the space a nice polish, while keeping the original character intact (it’s Grade-II listed, so a lot of attention to detail was required), and they’ve enlisted the help of James Knappett, a man whose day job involves running the two Michelin Starred Kitchen Table, to help rev up the menu. No big deal.

On it, you’ll find classic pub food that’s been taken up a couple of notches – there are Scottish langoustine scampi & chips; a venison, bacon and prune hotpot; a black pudding Scotch egg; and a good ol’ knickerbocker glory for dessert.

Mmm, scampi.

The drinks obviously include a raft of keg & cask beers, but they’ve also added in some cocktails too, such as their hot Irish coffee, or their frothy, tankard-served silver Fizz, which blends gin with lemon, sugar, soda, and vanilla.

This is just the opening act though. Joining in February will be a “dining experience” from James Knappett, in one of the upstairs rooms.

Which will probably beat a packet of Walkers and some nuts.

 

NOTE: The George is open now. You can find out more at their website right HERE.
