Open from lunch ‘til late, The George has a rare kind of magic – the ability to adapt to different crowds, moods and moments. Whether you’re hosting a corporate function, a birthday bash or a cocktail party, The George creates just the right atmosphere to make it a memorable occasion.
Step into ‘our house’ and you’ll encounter a range of different spaces, each with its own unique character and charm. We love nothing more than bringing these rooms to life with great food, drinks and of course service. No matter what the event entails, we make it our mission to ensure everything’s smooth sailing (so you can actually enjoy yourself!).
As the name suggests, the Cellar is cool, classy and sophisticated – making it ideal for gatherings where style is key. The beauty of the Cellar is that it’s extremely versatile: it can act as a private dining room for up to 45 people, or be opened up into a cocktail space for over 200. Fully equipped with a range of private facilities and technology, it’s also perfect for corporate events where you need to make a presentation or make a visual impact.
Up a few stairs you’ll ﬁnd the Attic: a secluded, semi-private space that’s tucked away from the rest of The George. Overlooking the main Parlour, the Attic allows you to enjoy the atmosphere of the venue, while still having space to yourself. Accommodating up to 30, it’s a more intimate room decked out in comfortable lounge furniture – making it ideal for those times you want to create a sense of ease and closeness at your event.
Downstairs is the Den: a very private space with its own entrance and private bar. The Den is a beautiful canvas which you can use to create the event of your choice – it’s easy to decorate. Great for social get togethers, but equally good for work-related events where you want to keep things more intimate.
Upon entering the George, tucked around the corner, you come across the rumpus room: a semi private dining or cocktail space This space can be setup for any occasion, it’s ideal for work catch ups, or semi private dining. This space is ﬂexible and can accommodate small groups with ease.
