This is a lovely little pub, a bit like being in England in the summer. Typical pub grub and full of locals having a good time although during Jan/Feb/Mar it is also full of people from Europe who come here to escape the winter. A great meeting place with good food and a great atmosphere. Packed and very noisy on... More

Nothing special about this place. During the day it serves typical pub fare and at night it is jam packed with noisy drinkers. The staff are pleasant but overworked.

All the English style pub standards on the menu from bangers & mash to an all day breakfast. Cold beer and soccer or rugby on the television. Professional, friendly staff keep everything running smoothly no matter how busy they get. Good to sit outside on a hot night and watch the glamour of umhlanga wander past.

A full plate of hot food & a tall cold beer or glass of wine for 59R. The longer we stayed, the more friendly the locals became. One local bought us local drinks to try for the first time. Nice atmosphere & good people watching by the sidewalk on their patio.

Irrespective of the weather, a visit to The George will brighten you up. The cheerful atmosphere, great food value and "Oh Boy" all the beers you can choose from will keep you going back for more every time. Sparkling service - but not the most comfortable bar stool seating, balance each other.

A relaxed place to just chill, enjoy a few drinks and yummy food. The burgers are excellent! Very vibey, nice background music (when you can hear it) but not just for youngsters; seniors also very welcome :) Staff friendly and helpful.
