we came here right when it opened at noon. the place was almost empty but the food was delicious. we had the steak and ale pie with mash potatoes and the bangers and mash. the pie was super flaky on the outside and the steak was very tender. the mash potatoes were very flavorful. for dessert we ordered the sticky toffee pudding which tasted very moist and cake-y. bonus points for seeing our food appear from inside a dumb waiter, which is hidden in a pillar in front of the bar.
highly recommend this place.
A local warm feel to this pub. A selection of real ales on tap. Lots of cozy nooks to chill out in. No music heard so if you want that it's not hAppening.
An average London ale pub really. Looks relatively old fashioned inside and out. The pub is clearly tied or owned by Greene King, but has Wandle on tap so you are not completely limited to their beers.
There are better places in the area, but if you find yourself here
you'll be alright.
I really like this pub. When meeting friends around Kings Cross for a brief encounter before they jump upon trains to the Home Counties, i always get us to congregate here.
It is a little off the beaten track, just on the left off of Euston Rd, and the pub sits inconspicuously on the corner f the road. The interior is warm and cosy, and they serve food at lunchtime and in the evenings. I am told their sausage and mash is amazing, but I'm always disappointed with their vegetarian options.
They have good outside seating, which means it's perfect for a summers day. The pub also has a beautiful Victorian ceiling.
Went there yesterday and had a great steak and ale pie and an Indian pale ale both excellent
I agree with the previous reviewer. This is a decent pub (and I would add, a country mile better than ersatz 'Oirish' places like O'Neills on the Euston Road) and a good safe bet - but certainly not outstanding. The main problem with it is that it is so busy, I think I have failed to get a seat on any of the three evenings I have tried it.
There are better pubs within walking distance, but for proximity to Kings Cross / St. Pancras, this is an acceptable option.
