GEORGE & DANVER
George & Danver is located on St Aldate’s.
The success of the original shop left no other option but to expand the G&D’s joy further into the town. George and Danver opened in 2001 on the corner of Pembroke St. and St. Aldates and became enormously busy serving students, tourists, and locals alike. This expansion to the company also saw an expansion in size and seating space. Larger than the original parlour, the basement area of the shop can be used for private parties and events as well as housing the company’s bakery. Like the ice cream, our homemade bakery products are freshly made daily and cycled from shop to shop.
The summer is perhaps the most exciting time for George and Danver as we have our ice cream bike stationed outside, next to the outdoor seating area. This allows our customers to enjoy the G&D’s experience in the heat of the British summer sun! During term-time, Geroge and Danver runs a “rowing” competition with Oxford University students; their college “boats” are displayed above the counter area.
In the next few months, George and Danver will experience another expansion, as the shop bakery is due to start making our bagels on-site, too.
