We were staying in London close to that pub. We went there to dine and drink. We weren't disappointed: burgers were good (though we regret the meat is overcooked for a French like me) and they had a large selection of ales.

This is such a unique pub in the heart of Kings Cross. It has a very homely feel with all the knick knacks around. The staff are very friendly and there is a warm atmosphere every time I visit. They have a new food menu which beats any of the other rubbish that I have tried around the place. Every... More

My daughter and I were staying near by at the Wardonia Hotel and stumbled across this charming little local pub. Very non-descript exterior and in a obscure alley location. Oh, but what a joy it was. Bartendtress was friendly and attentive, and regular patrons were free entertainment. We were there on a Friday night and place was about half full,... More

I liked the atmosphere in this place on a weeknight at 8:45. Locals slowly drinking themselves silly, a pleasant bartender, and 80s music. The fish and chips were tasty and not very expensive, served with mushy peas, which I love. So I'd give it an unreserved positive, except...there IS a swastika on the wall, and I found that a bit...

We were staying just round the corner in Tavistock Place and spotted this pub en route back to our hotel, and decided to try it in the evening as we needed a) somewhere to eat and b) somewhere to watch the England - Uruguay game. Got there about an hour before kick off to find it virtually empty. We started... More

We went to the Boot for a pint after staying local on a Tuesday evening and reading the reviews. We went in and waited at the bar to get served and waited 7-8 mins and there was no one there so we walked out along with other people. The place seemed shoddy and uninteresting, had plenty of time to look... More

Very nice looking place, prices are good, and the atmosphere is friendly. Has some ties to Dickens apparently as well, which is interesting.

Stopped in here a while back while I was on my way to a show near Kings Cross. I had about 30 minutes to eat and I figured this would be a good place for a quick bite. Unfortunately that turned out not to be the case! I ordered some chicken curry which took forever to come out, and which... More

Stopped in for a pint on our first night. Local crowd, friendly bartender, and cheap drinks. Exactly what I was looking for. The bartender was great because she was able to give us lots of things to do and places to go while we were in town.

Visited pub for a drink and meal before catching the train from nearby St Pancras. Basic selection of pub food good quality at a reasonable price. Locals were friendly and felt at home. Good choice of beers and a pool table. Would recommend for nice pint and meal.
