6th May 2012 - I have enjoyed a few pints here on my own and with friends. Pictures on the wall show a history of The George and other pubs on the Isle of Dogs and there is an overall traditional feel about this place. Pub is quite large with a fair sized conservatory/garden which can get busy on Sundays. Food is decent, prices are reasonable and staff do a good job.

27th Feb 2012 - This became my local a number of months ago and I always felt welcome. Of late, have been going in a little more often as a friend is also working locally. This is a really nice pub. Have looked at the previous review comments and can only say it must have changed. Staff are really friendly, pub itself lovely. Food is excellent and keenly priced. Guinness really good. It's a traditional pub but I've not felt in any way unwelcome (or maybe I'm just thick-skinned). Pricing reasonable and overall would find it hard to fault, were it not for some of the "interesting" entertainment on offer - some of the musical acts not the best, but the background music really good.

11th Mar 2010 - Coming from the Island I live close by and dived in one Thursday night for a couple of quick pints and to kill time before going to the 24 hour Asdas next door to for a bit of midnight shopping. The pub is beautifully ornate inside with fine cornicing and a nice (original?) tiled area by the bar. There was a half decent Timothy Taylors on offer and I settled down to kill time. Unfortunately that was as good as it got and I can confirm the previous reviewers comment that the whole bar staff have an attitude of "who the XXXX do you think you are drinking in our pub". Despite ordering 3 pints and being nothing but polite to the bar staff I was a third of the way through my third pint when the landlord out of nowhere marched up, grab my pint off the table and announced I was making everybody nervous and he was kicking me out. This has never happened to me before but apparently my crime was to "walk up and down the pub" - I was actually looking at the fine collection of historical photos on the wall - and this was making everybody nervous (though all the people at the bar were oblivious to what was going on). Coupled with the fact I had a sports bag (!)...which I had on me to collect my shopping in. I followed the fat little obnoxious landlord to the bar and tried to reason with him, explained the bag and offered to let him see it was empty but unfortunately the fat little turd was to ignorent to take anything on board. Eventually he realised he was in the wrong but his puiffed up little pride wouldn't let him back down.
In many ways this sums up the worst of the Isle of Dogs and it has to be said East London as a whole. I'm biased, even though I've lived here 15 years I'm from South London and in many ways I can't stand these ignorant cockney t**ts and on a weekend I will always head south to Greenwich or Blackheath and I would rather eat my own vomit than go north of Mile End Road though I will occasionally stay on the isle for decent pubs where the bar staff are friendley - The Ferry House, the Ship and particulalrly the Tooke. I just hope Chelsea stuff West Ham and their pikey followers on Saturday then I'll be straight down the George with a Chelsea top. 12/3/10

17th Sep 2005 - Empty apart from a couple of regulars propping up the bar on the lazy Sunday afternoon that I visited. They were friendly enough, saying a cheery goodbye (and possibly good riddance) as we left. Service was fine with a hint of "who are you" from the landlady. The blackboard proudly boasts that the pub does world famous fish and chips, and there is a conservatory/dining area out back. I doubt you'd have to reserve a table. Definitely one for the locals as the pub hasn't moved with the changing demographic of the area, but go a few times so they know your face and I'm sure you'd be welcome.
