Just had to update

I have reviewed this pub before. It's no secret that it's one of my all time favourites but they have just added a new string to their bow. They have a great new chef who provides gastro pub meals at a decent price. I had empanadas for starters and they were superb and his barbecue ribs were even... read more

This is a great backstreet pub - it's independent and quirky with walls full of interesting photos and memorabilia, and the beer is good. I can't speak for the food but the staff are very helpful and friendly. There is also a pool table. If you want a corporate chain this is not the place for you, but if you... More

I decided to check this place out as I was staying in a hotel nearby and wanted to experience my last night in London at an "authentic" British pub; I'm glad I did! The staff were very friendly and sweet. I ordered the sausages and mashed potatoes along with a pint of "The Boot" lager, which were awesome! Very cozy... More

This is an indpendent pub not tied to a brewery or a pubco. It is different, I'll give them that; it consists of one big room and I wouldn't use the word cosy about it. For some reason ive been here twice, but as it seems more of a place for people that are out with friends ive not stayed... More

Traditional London boozer very close to King's Cross St Pancras. Great folk behind the bar, a good working class vibe to the place, nice little selection of ales, all the usual drinks selections. Sky Sports on match days. A Great jukebox! And also a pool table. Just don't be put off by the decor - this is a proper old... More

My friend took me here for the first time a couple weeks ago, and I'm glad. There was a work do {I think} of very friendly people that we played some pool with. The atmosphere fun. Great drinks~ also very good in value. Loved the interior of this wee pub, too. Will be returning. 5*

This is a real pub. Real people, real ales and really friendly service. Hope it is not gentrified in the area upgrade. It was mentioned in Dickens Barnaby Rudge and hopefully it will be there for eons. By the way the swastika, mentioned in an earlier review, is a Hindu good luck symbol.

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
