The word ‘legendary’ gets thrown around a lot these days. Realistically most times anything is called ‘legendary’ it’s probably an exaggeration, unless you’re referring to that night your mate did too many sambuca shots and attempted to climb Big Ben whilst singing ‘It’s Chico Time’. Because hello, iconic. But when we say that The George Tavern is legendary, we mean it.
This Grade II listed pub and live music venue in Stepney first opened in 1623 and has been mentioned in works by Geoffrey Chaucer, Samuel Pepys, and Charles Dickens. See, legendary. Arguably, having your birthday here is a huge flex and their massive garden is one of the single best places to spend a Saturday afternoon in London. Keep an eye on their website for their packed schedule of gigs, quizzes, singalongs, and cult ‘c u next Tuesday’ club nights.
