George, 25 Old Bailey, St Bartholomew EC4

St Bart pub history index

In 1851, this address is also the 'errand cart office', and listed in St Sepulchre census, as it is in 1901 census. The pub was situated on the west side of Old Bailey at the junction with Fleet Lane which is visible in the 1991 A-Z but noted as demolished in the 1991 pub listing. Neither this street nor the pub are still standing. *
The George was destroyed and burnt out by the Old Bailey bomb in 1973. The bomb was actually just inside Fleet Lane parked outside of The George; between The George and the side of Hillgate House (26 Old Bailey), which was also significantly damaged by the bomb. ***
I worked in the Department of Trade on the second floor of Hillgate House a few years after the bomb. An image exists of the devastation in Getty Images -
