George IV, Chiswick, opens its door following an extensive refurbishment

Fuller, Smith & Turner P.L.C., the London brewer and premium pub company, is delighted to announce that the George IV, 185 High Road, Chiswick will reopen for business on Monday 22 September, following an extensive refurbishment.


Located in the very heart of Chiswick and just round the corner from Fuller’s Brewery, the George IV has been given a stylish makeover, but still retains its traditional pub feel. The pub is a haven to drinkers in W4 and while the menu has been redesigned to appeal to today’s customer, the bar is still very much the heart of this popular Chiswick watering hole. In addition, the large room to the back of the pub, which many in the area will know as a comedy club,  has been opened up to allow in more natural light. This has created a fantastic space for live entertainment, family celebrations, business seminars and conferences. The Boston Room, as it is now known, can hold up to 200 people.


The bar will house a wide range of cask ales from London and international brewers, many of which will change on a regular basis. Meanwhile, the new menu focuses on freshly cooked delicious dishes using carefully selected, high quality ingredients. [New recipes will feature some traditional classics, albeit with a subtle twist – not needed].


In addition to its inspiring new look, the George IV is under new management. Rachel Watson has been working for Fuller’s for 12 years and in that time has achieved Master Cellarman status. Rachel says: “It’s really exciting being part of a new phase in George IV’s history. It’s been a busy few months and we are all proud of what we have achieved. It is the perfect place to drop in for a pint or a bite to eat and we will be keeping our tradition of live entertainment, which will maintain the great atmosphere in this iconic pub. It is known as a ‘local’ to many, and I am looking forward to welcoming customers – both new and old – through the doors.”


Jonathon Swaine, Managing Director of Fuller’s Inns, says: “We are very excited about the re-opening of the George IV. We relish the challenge in refurbishing iconic pubs like this and the team has done a fantastic job in bringing one of our flagship pubs up to date. We have tried to recapture everything great about going to a pub – great beer, great food and great atmosphere. We know the George IV’s customers are in safe hands with Rachel – she is an excellent manager and a first-class host.”


The George IV re-opens on Monday 22 September and there will be a re-opening party on Tuesday 23 September. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to: / 020 8996 2135
