Historical version 19 of George, CR0 1LA (view current version)

Wetherspoons pub in Croydon, in the Good Beer Guide. It's right next to George Street Tram Stop.

It's a fairly typical shop-conversion Wetherspoons inside, though it does go back further than one might expect; the large booth-lined area at the back even has its own bar.

Food is served all day from a chain-wide menu which includes a few vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options.

On our January 2015 visit the real ales were mainly golden ales, though they did have Oakham Opportunist on too (£2.70/pint), a dark ale with an unfortunately sexist pump clip. Service was efficient, and food arrived swiftly too. A jacket potato with five-bean chilli had a nicely chewy skin, but the interior of the potato was watery and mushy.

Child-friendliness: There's a pull-down baby change table in the ladies' (gents' not checked).

Accessibility: No steps to get in, and it's step-free to all the seating (via a ramp for the back part). There's a RADAR-locked accessible toilet on the ground floor, though access to this is often cluttered with people. There's also step-free access to the ladies' (gents' not checked).
