See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

There has been a pub here since 1666, when this was the main road out of London, the present building dating from the 1920's built as a hotel featuring modern gas lamps for lighting. The large lamps outside may well have been for such purpose. Originally the George, it had a spell as the Great Tree from 1700 until later in the 18th century. Used to be a Rat & Parrot (S&N Retail) for a few years until 2004. The exterior is quite impressive in "Brewer's Tudor" style with leaded windows in the upper story. There is a large single, open plan L-shaped bar which has undergone recent refurbishment to brighten the place up and create a very comfortable environment. Using plenty of light wood, soft colours, lighting and gas coal-effect fires, there's a stripped wooden bar with stools around it and a mix of sofas and standard tables. The floor is alternatively tiled or wooden and the back area seems to be reserved for eating in the evenings. There is a small patio to the rear, largely given over to smokers. Hot and cold meals are available daily. All NHS staff get a 10% discount.
