Lovely pub with big windows looking onto the street. We only had drinks but we could smell the pizza which was giving us food envy!
Wonderful spot to have a couple of beers with friends. My mates and I are a bit noisy party and these guys somehow don't mind and keep addressing us warmly and welcoming. I guess that's the kind of but it is. In addition, food is a delight.
Had a great time here.
Really unusual pizza. Make from scratch on the premises. Tasted delicious.
***LOVED*** the live music I experienced when I was there. [No TV WOOHOO!]
I found the staff very accomodating and had a great evening here.
Came in to grab some good food near a friends house. Looks like a spacious and typical british pub, but they serve Italian food.
I've only had the DEEElicious calzone. And it was big too. Shared with said friend and still was satisfied. I likes to eat, so that's saying something. I don't remember what I drank. I think I just got a cider so not sure about our bartenders skillz.
Bartender was super friendly despite being tired. I forgot why he was tired. But he said he was. But still smiled and chatted. It was a Friday evening, fairly quiet.
Whatevs, I'm a fan. I want to go back and try some other menu items.
Saw this pub soon after moving to the area. Had a pool tablelooked a bit rough to be honestin keeping with the street it's on. So I dismissed it early on and never gave it a second look.
Which is a shame as it has been transformed. No more pool, just a comfortable boozer serving a wide variety of drinks (including 3 ales when I was there) in a relaxed atmosphere. They have events such as quizzes and acoustic nights. These days it's well worth a visit.
Just off from the hustle and bustle of Old Street, I regularly come here, whether for a quick drink or a meal. The food is lovely; more pricey than that of the other pubs I go to in the area but definitely worth it, the chips and garlic breads and pizzas are lovely. I often buy myself a jar of sweets, a great unusual offering that goes well with any drink!
There is no student discount here, but the staff are lovely, even when there are nearly 20 students filling most of the indoor seats!
I know they have live music nights regularly.
I've been looking to find a new local since recently moving to old street. While my new neighborhood is great for going to clubs, raging till 5 am and fitting in as a hipster on my fixie bicycle, I have had a hard time finding a place i feel comfortable going in alone for a pint and a bite on a weekday evening.
However I feel that I may have found a bit of what I am looking for in the George and Vulture. On first glance there is nothing that really distinguishes it from any other pub. It is the little things that makes this place somewhere I plan on frequenting. I had a delicious pizza made on the spot along with a good salad. Additionally, this is the first place since moving here that the staff were extremely friendly. Instead of spending their down time exclusively on their cell phones, each of the 2 bartenders took a moment to come over to me and strike up a friendly conversation. A level of service rarely seen in a London pub.
A cozy good looking pub hidden in the midth of Hoxton, serving an increadibly tasty home-made italian pizza (id say one of the best one in london) and has a very athmospheric acoustic live music from one of the best original singer-songwriters on Sundays, Weds and Sats! A must! Xx
Yes i have reviewed this pub before. but im back to say tonight was a very special night.customers brought in inflatable palm trees,and dressed as heroes and legends,I met batman spiderman, Tina Turner,a guy dressed as a car think it was a renualt.Marelynn was awesome,oh yes the guy dressed as a plane,and many more like , there was so many who put a lot of time and effort into what was a great great night.This was a ladies birthday party,and she must be a very special lady, to have such good friends who did her proud,I spoke as I said to Spiderman and hes keen to have more of these nights , so if I hear its happening I will let you all know.Only a venue like the George and Vulture can spring these surprises,but qypers You will know as soon as I do.Trust me this was so different,photos soon
This is my local and the guys behind the bar are super friendly. Usually when I go for a pint it's during pub quiz or live music nights. There is limited seating and the eclectic range of old furniture makes navigation a bit hard, but on a quiet evening it's worth hitting the pub for their excellent pizzas and a bottle of wine. It's great value and tasty stuff.
We popped in here on Saturday afternoon. It's a mellow place then, and you can sit out on the street-side picnic tables in the sun. We ordered a bowl of olives, and boy do you get olives, a whole lot of teensy olives. It was rather amusing, as there were only two of us.
On Sunday we went back and ran into a bloke we know, and he's a big fan of this spot. He said it's been fixed up recently and the crowd changed a bit as a result, to more mellow folk.
Pub quiz on Tuesday evenings if you're interested. I'd put this as a place to go if you're a local, rather than a destination.
After the re-opening, this place has changed. I don't bother going there anymore, the new staff is rude and aggressive.
We live in the area, and this pub has become by far the nicest, and most chilled in the area. Far from the wine bars of Hoxton Sq, but bit more upmarket than a lot of the other pubs nearby.
They did a live music night on thursday that was really great - if slightly warm! A lot more proffessional than your average open mic - apparently some signed, yet unknown next-big-stars in the acoustic world!
Decent enough food, and really great beer - tastiest pint of lager I've had in a while!
Defo a locals place - a good ecelectic mix of young and old, suits and boots, trendy and normal - pretty much sums up this part of London!
my favorite pub in Local, wish I was my local
