The British and Portuguese have maintained, what many believe to be, the oldest friendship in history. Officially, it is called the Anglo-Portuguese Alliance, and it has been in effect since both countries signed the Treaty of Windsor in 1386. Since then, Brits have come to Portugal to enjoy the sun, wine and chicken peri-peri…and the Portuguese welcome them with open arms. A new bar/restaurant in Lisbon celebrates traditional British culture in a way that even Winston Churchill would enjoy. It’s The George Pub on Rua do Crucifixo in the fashionable Chiado district…the first and only British-style pub in Lisbon.

Step into The George, any time of day (open from noon to 2:00am) for any mood you want. The completely-refurbished historic building maintains 18th-century architectural elements, while installing a large wooden bar and decorating the space in reds, browns and beiges create a warm, inviting atmosphere.

Grab a tall stool at the bar. Watch a game. Live sports play on TV monitors all around the pub. Try some of the 16 varieties of beer or 14 labels of gin. Of course, Portuguese wines and ports are always ready to pour, by the glass or bottle.
