The Euston Flyer is one of my all time favorite pubs in London. Their food is great but their service is truly awesome. I cannot say enough good things about how well they have treated me and my friends every time we have come. I bring a group of friends every winter for a trip to London. Our first dinner is always here and with good reason - the food is great and the atmosphere can't be beat. I love watching football matches here as well. Keep up the good work!
Good spot for a beer. Decent selection. I didn't get any food here so can't comment on that. I also liked the interior set up of this place and nice stations close to the bar so you don't have to hover over the bar.
I always visited this place
every time that I came here in London. This place always never disappoints me.
The food is pretty good, and the drinks are really satisfying. Good food and
drinks selection at very cheaper price. The ambiance is very cool, and a nice
"Hunny my vege Sausage looks like a turd"
Don't let that put you off. Me and the Mrs popped in one Sunday morning before rehearsal. Seeing the wait for breakfast at the O'Neill's down the road, we braved the Euston Flyer.
It's a large Fullers pub along the Euston Road. The sort of place with levelled and separated areas, lots of TV's and lots of CCTV. In a very traditional pub style, wooden tables, menus on pieces of paper rolled up into a pint glass and wooden spoons for table numbers you know kind of what to expect.
We didn't wait long for our food and when it came, the vegie sausages did indeed look like turds on the plate. But they were pleasant enough, little falafel type moulds, which although wouldn't be my idea in a full English made a change from the norm.
The pepsi tasted watered down, so clearly someone forgot to change the gas on the syrup.
Overall not a bad little place, big and standard Fuller's fayre. I mite pop in for a pint one day.
The beer was good, the service fast, and the food delicious. Very nice pub with big screens just a few step from king's cross.
I recommend it for a cheap typical dinner in the area ;)
We visited Euston Flyer doing the world cup a couple of years ago to watch England vs Sweden. It was a great experience. Good food, good atmosphere, service was good (even though it was busy) and great people all around. Those big screens were cool to watch. I wonder if they are in HD now?
Of course the beer was great too. C'mon it's England, they do beer right! Fuller's E.S.B and London Pride, its the best way to stagger home or in our case to our hotel.
And for those American Yanks looking for some late night food after a few drinks, there is a McDonald's right down the street.

I have mixed feelings about this pub. It is in a great location 50 yards from Kings Cross and 500 yards from Euston, but with this brings some London prices. Especially for food where you don't get value for money. It is well prepared, but expensive for pub grub.
I do like the multi layered character of the place. They have a cosmopolitan vibe and embrace the sports with a big screen and additional TV's. You do have to give them a nudge for sound.
Of course the best aspect is the Ale's. Somewhere to find a nice brew. Most other drinks are well catered for too, but you will be spending the cash for spirits.
Good range of beers. Nicely laid out with seating. Pulp playing on the radio. Try before you buy on the real ales. Went for the Red Fox. Fullers pub so good beer.
The Euston Flyer never fails me. The food is pretty good, nothing memorable, but nothing that'll disappoint. But their service is always awesome. My boyfriend and I always come here to watch Barcelona games. They're always nice enough to change the channel when no other big sporting events are going on. You gotta love the huge screen they pull down.
P.S. Try the Fuller's Organic Honey Dew. It's my fave!
Went in here as met up with a mate at Kings Cross Station and we wanted to find a nearby pub to watch the football game. We found this, which has several big screens for live sports.
The pub itself looked like your standard watering hole, nothing special, but quite a big pub so perfect for large groups.
However, the food was way overpriced... with a fish and chips costing around £11, and a simple burger and a few fries costing £9+. A beef burger, chicken burger, and two bottles of beer ended up costing £25... which is truly exorbitant, even for central London! And this was no gastropub either. The food tasted alright, with portions on the slightly large side, but overall not very impressed.

I feel a little bad giving this place a 2. They serve most of the Fuller's beersin good condition too. And this is a good place to watch the sport with one projector screen and a couple of large screens elsewhere. The staff seem nice too.
In the end though this is a packed and expensive pub that primarily serves travelers (either people waiting for trains or people from the nearby stations) so there is very little in the way of atmosphere. I don't like to come here so I have to rate it that poorly!
This place provides an outstanding atmosphere and great people for any good football game. If that game is at 1300 people are out by 1100 drinking a pint with their jersey's enjoying each others company. The atmopshere inside is clean. The beers are outstanding. I only tried their honey dew organic with out knowing what to expect and it was one of the most refreshing beers I've tried.
It's also located right next door to the YHA hostel so... if your staying there... why not walk out the door and have beer with the locals in the area. :)
When I walked in to the Euston Flyer for the first time I thought it was a Wetherspoon's, such is its open-plan style and general decor (read: bland and forgettable).
When I got to the bar the prices of the drinks made me quickly realise it is not a Weatherspoon's. It is much more expensive than that.
The Euston Flyer, in my opinion, is somewhat lacking in warmth and atmosphere.
It is expensive, and the staff are rubbish and utterly devoid of any sense of humour.
Super delicious steak and ale pie. Like, the best meal I had in London. The service is pretty good, plenty of seating and great selection of draft and bottle beer. I'm a fan. It was a great pub experience for this America Tourist.
The Euston Flyer is a pretty nice place - I used to work in Kings Cross and this was a regular for lunch and post work drinks.
The food served at this pub, although over priced, is really nice. Whether you get a sandwich, baguette, sausage & mash, burger & chips or just a little snack the food is delicious. The only downer is that the food takes forever to be served For someone who has an hour lunch break and has to wait 40 minutes for their hot food to arrive it isn't ideal! I have never eaten in there apart from at lunchtime so I have no idea what the serving times are in the evenings.
The Flyer brings in a decent crowd the majority of the time, particularly during the week where it is a favourite amongst locals. If you can get in there early enough to get a table then it's a nice place to chat with work colleagues or meet up with friends. However it does get VERY busy so for those who like a quieter night out I would suggest somewhere else.
The Flyer also has the additional pub features of gambling machines and touch screen quiz machines - no pool tables though. The prices for both drinks and food are pricey but then most places in the area are, it's worth a quick look see or a good place to watch the footie after work and if you don't like it there are plenty of other pubs and bars to go to nearby.
This is an excellent pub, very large and high-ceilinged, with a varied floor level that provides visual interest as well as a plethora of comfortable nooks. It's decorated in pretty traditional pub style; wooden furnishings and panelling, assorted knick-knacks, making it feel oddly cosy despite the impressive size. Being a Fuller's pub, it has a large range of their beers on tap, with many more offered in bottles; also speciality beers from the continent. The food, served from noon to nine o'clock, is extremely tasty and generously proportioned, if a little pricey; I would certainly recommend Euston Flyer for a pub lunch over anywhere else in the area. A function room is also advertised as being available for hire.
At lunchtime, it's possible to have the pub almost to yourself. Come evening and weekend, despite its size it does become rather full; however, a lot of the evening crowd are after-work businesspeople, so it doesn't stay crammed for too long. Major sporting events are shown on several large screens, so if there's a World Cup or similar going on in a sport you don't like it may be wise to go somewhere else until the game is over. However, that's the only reason I can think of to avoid Euston Flyer, as it is in all respects a superb pub.
Stopped by while at the station, Good beer, friendly service, reasonable prices. Can't really complain. Will have to stop and enjoy the food sometime.
Came in midday for a Sunday roast. They really delivered. Roast lamb and Yorkshire pudding was delicious, with great veregtables. It took them less than 10 minutes to whip it up. All for £10.
Great place for a pint of ESB and to watch the euston road traffic.
Food really good pub grub, a must if you've got time waiting for a train at euston, st pancreas or kings cross
We arrived at stPancrass on a sunday morning. We walked by this traditional looking pub and decided to go in for an english breakfast. I had a vegi one and my girl had a traditional one. We both loved our food! Only downside to this is the service, it was okay but def. not on par with the food.
If you only got two words to describe a pub, this would be massively average. In that it is absolutely huge, and just feels like it fell of a conveyor belt of "how we imagine traditional pubs". Food is fine, but average, drink choice is fine but average, prices are average and atmosphere...you guessed it average. The good news is that most of the pubs around Euston station are rubbish, so actually average is a step in the right direction if you are hanging about waiting for a train and fancy a pint.
Best thing about this Fullers pub is undoubtedly the Fullers seasonal beers, which are fantastic. The food is reasonable but quite expensive- just go a few doors down to Pizza Express if you have to eat. Large screen tvs tend to attract businessmen interested in rugby matches, so stay away in the evenings. Opens on the Euston Road, so you can always head into the british library for a bit of culture or the eurostar for a bit of french culture, if that isn't a contradiction in terms.
A nice selection of beers and the food looked pretty good, the two young french ladies who had obviously just come off the eurostar were enjoying it. Lots of screens showing different sports and news channels. A good place to meet if you come into London via Euston, St Pancras or Kings Cross.
Stopped in for a pint between trains. Great pub look and feel. Large bar area, plenty of seating for drinks or eats. Wide selection of beers... I enjoyed Stella on this day, which was nice and cold. Friendly bar staff. Outside seating on the side walk, free wi-fi throughout! Quite a few HD TVs for watching sporting events. It's between Euston and Kings Cross stations so there is a steady flow of traffic.
The Euston Flyer is a pub located between Kings Ceoss St Pancras and Euston Station. It is a very large open plan pub that is an excellent for lunch or a couple of drinks with friends. The pub does tend to get busier in the evening and is a popular stop off for business folk for a few after work pints, however if you pop in at lunchtime or a Sunday then it is perfect. The food served here is exceptional, especially the Homemade Steak pie and Fish and chips. The price is a tad expensive but the portion size certainly makes up for this as they are enormous. The drink selection is the normal and there is nothing out of the ordinary, however The Euston Flyer is a nice stop off pub if you just so happen to be in the area, waiting for a triain or what not.
Though a bit noisy- it has to cope with the noise of the road- a friendly busy pub with a good selection of real ale from Fullers. A particularly welcome pint of London Pride on my visit- the hustle and bustle if people leaving the city via Kings Cross and via a pint or two making for a lively atmosphere.
This place is rough rough rough. Ok, if you choose to try to find pubs on the main road between Euston and Kings Cross, you deserve whatever you get. In this case, a crappy, dirty fairly large pub, full of horrible men drinking horrible beer. Worse, the football was on. Managed to squeeze ourselves into a quiet space right at the back of the pub (the only place where you couldn't see the screen therefore the only place to sit down and keep out of eye contact with the mob). As soon and I literally mean as soon as the final whistle was blown in the match, a massive fight erupted in the pub. Thankfully, I felt a little protected in my back wall hideaway and it was all I could do to look on and hope that we didn't get accidentally whacked. I've only been here once but talking to more frequent visitors, my experience wasn't unique. Moral of the story, you never need wine so badly that you should come to this pub. Even if that doesn't seem possible, it's true.
