Real Ale Ray left this review about The George

A good sized two roomed pub with a lounge and bar side. The interior in here is very much non descript, the word drab is more apt. We went into the bar side on the left, where there was a further larger room with a pool table and a gaming machine. The bar hosted three handpumps with one in use, serving Wigan Brew House Casino Pale 3.9%. It was average and didn't warrant a second glass. The young barman wasn't very welcoming and I felt as though we were a nuisance even bothering to call in. It turned out him and his pal were more interested in playing the slot machine in the adjoining room. If the pub had a couple of more beer choices and better staff, I would have had a better experience.

We did not have such a favourable impression of the George as the last reviewer, but then we were on a real ale crawl so the presence of just one rather moderate beer on hand pump was a bit of a downer. Wigan Brewhouse Casino was the beer - I can't remember (and my notes made at the time don't help) whether it was in this pub or the Royal Alfred that we left our glasses unfinished. Probably the latter, but we didn't think much of this one either.

a very pleasant two sided pub and one of the good ones in St Helens. just the one real ale on which I swerved in favour of Erdinger. A popular rugby league (ie. proper rugby) pub with a very friendly jovial atmosphere. Shame about the Metallica crap favoured on the jukebox.

Friendly enough pub near to Central station. Two roomed pub with St Helens Rugby League Club memorabilia adorning the walls. One real ale was on from Ramsbottom at the time. Local characters enjoying an afternoon session to be found velcroed to the bar. Had a flyer advertising the selling of "Lancashire" badges. Tough titty, you're in Merseyside, deal with it.
