Closest to and on the road to East Croydon station to or from the centre of town. Itís also a short walk away from the other Lloyds Bar chink in this chain pub. This one is more laid back with session drinking taking place and although it is quite narrow it does extend back quite far to allow plenty of tables. There is even a second bar at the rear but youíll find the main ale choice at the one as you walk in. There is an religious theme running through the information on the wall but in terms of decor and furnishing this Wetherspoon looks very familiar to many others. In the middle of the pub is a small alcove area that has four tables next to some bookshelves.

The George is a short walk from East Croydon train station. The exterior and interior of the pub is typical Wetherspoons. Clientele is mostly old bearded men. What sets this JDW pub apart from the rest is the beer selection. On my last visit I was delighted to find 5 Oakham, 4 Thornbridge and a Dark Star on offer! They have a board next to the bar showing the next beers on and you can email the bar manager to suggest new beers to add. There is also a notice board that details the guest ales of the entire month and beer descriptions. Beer condition is spot on. I assume this is why The George won the last CAMRA pub of Croydon award! Well worth a visit.
