REVIEW: The George & Vulture, Hoxton
WHAT? A gloriously cosy little pub on Hoxton’s Pifield Street, minutes from the noise of Old Street and Shoreditch – go for a pint (or three), stay for the insane sourdough pizzas.
The G&V, as it’s affectionately known, dishes out a short menu of seriously good ‘Sodo’ pizza from Monday through to Saturday and Sundays after 7pm. From the Jon Bon Chovy (tomato, mozzarella, anchovy, olives, capers, chilli and fresh parsley) to the Sunny Goat (tomato, mozzarella, goats cheese, sun dried tomato and wild rocket) they’re fresh and artisanal, made in front of your eyes and blasted in a pizza oven next to the busy bar.
The ‘tallest pub in London’, the G&V’s been around since 1870 serving great beer, a good selection of wine (we polished off an excellent bottle of Malbec) and on Sundays you can enjoy a hearty roast that uses seasonal British produce. Want the experience but don’t want to leave the house? They deliver their pizzas, too!
