The George and Monkey couldn't have provided a better location for our engagement drinks! The communication in the lead-up and the service and the atmosphere on the night was all second to none. Definitely recommended!

Edward was extremely helpful/accommodating in the planning of the baby shower. And Ryan (event 'manager') on the day was brilliant. Food was lovely and the Back Room space was perfect in every way for our event.

Thanks Ed, everything was great and we had a lovely time.

Good evening, I'm George, so pleased to meet you.

That’s right, THE George. I know, I know, I am more handsome in person. But enough about me, let’s focus on you. It’s perfectly delightful of you to stop by. As I assume you are here for information let me tell you a few things about my fine hostelry. Located in the neo Georgian splendour of 68 Amwell Street, The George and Monkey offers the discerning a refined watering hole with all the comforts of home. That is, of course, if your home is furnished with an exemplary gin menu, the finest of craft beer, oodles of wine, sun bathed outdoor space, attentive staff, convivial company and a roaring hot pizza oven. Mine is!

Do stop by for a drink or a bite. I’m always at home.

Warmest Regards
