Our Chef
Tuesday to Sunday
from 11am
03 9686 5655

When it comes to food the George is blessed with two things – our chef and the South Melbourne Market directly across the corner from us. There is never any shortage of fresh produce of the highest quality so we have everything you would expect from generous portioned comfort food to elegant casual cuisine. From bangers and mash, to cajun delights and flavours from the sub continent.

The George chef has created a range of offerings to please and satisfy the traditional pub grub lover and the clean-food conscious alike. Along with our most popular staples chef mixes it up with nightly specials to keep the menu lively.




With the market across the road Peter takes the opportunity to change the menu according to the best produce that is available and in season. The South Melbourne Market is one of Melbourne's finest. While we prize it for our ingredients it holds special appeal for thousands of locals. If you haven't visited the market we recommend it as a superb Melbourne experience. 




With fresh suppliers at hand everything on the menu has a special touch, be it house made sauces, our authentic curries, the slow roasts or the selection of cheeses.






We have the entire South Melbourne Market at hand so go ahead, call us about your function.
