Irish chef Aidan McGee has partnered with the team at The George &  Dragon pub in Fitzrovia, London.

The menu will be pub food with a modern take and include dishes such as beef strumpet, horseradish, parmesan and Cornish crab, cucumber, melon for starters. For mains confit duck leg, cabbage, mash and duck sauce and Irish lamb, tomatoes, broad beans and lamb broth, while desserts include sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice-cream and strawberry tart served with strawberry sorbet.

Aidan McgeeMcGee made a name for himself looking after the food at the award-winning Truscott Arms in Maida Vale London and its sister wine bar Truscott Cellar in Belsize Park  before their closure in 2016.

The pub was listed at No 8 in The Top 50 Gastro Pubs list and won best Sunday roast in Great Britain in his time. McGee is also a Tatler Awards rising star nominee.

McGee’s food style is very produce-led with him sourcing much of his food from Ireland and the UK to showcase the quality that is on offer. He also plans to change up the Sunday roast at The George and Dragon with a more refined offering.

The pub will be brewing beer on site and taking beers from Cork to Cornwall and Germany to Bermondsey. The whole wine list will be available by the glass.

Opening times for lunch at the The George & Dragon are 12-4pm Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and 5-9.30pm Tuesday to Saturday for dinner.
