The George and Vulture

Dicken's Mr. Pickwick stayed here throughout his court hearing.


The George and Vulture, formerly Thomas's Chop House is where Dicken's Mr Pickwick stayed during the hearing of Bardell v Pickwick.

It's also where the infamous `Hellfire Club` started, in the late 17th Century. In 1746, Sir Francis Dashwood founded his Order of the Knights of St Francis and they initially met in a room here dominated by 'an everlasting Rosicrucian lamp'.

It's now a restaurant.
