The George pub in Liverpool Street has launched the UK’s first crackling menu. There will be four different types of crackling to choose from and each has been paired with a London craft beer.
Not wanting to break from tradition I started off by trying the classic pork crackling paired with Partizan Brewery Lemongrass Saison. Just the right amount of liquid oozed from the crackling to tempt my taste buds with a delicious fatty after taste.
Next up was the chicken crackling washed down with Shoreditch Blonde and a parma ham crackling with East London Brewery Pale Ale. While I enjoyed both, I was erring on the side of tradition until the parmesan & polenta crackling with Redemption Brewery Hopspur snatched the position as my favourite – adding further reason to believe that cheese makes everything taste good.
The George has also revamped its main menu offering hungry Londoners and visitors alike classic pub comfort food. I tried the Corn Fed Chicken Supreme, served with aromatic vegetables, baby gem and madeira jus. Other menu highlights include mac & cheese, bangers & mash and their signature fish & chips.
If you’re looking for a quintessential English pub with a wide selection of beers and good food to boot, then look no further than The George.
