Great Proper Boozer with Food

Normal / characterful local boozer that serves good food and beer. An antidote to the usual chain/ souless hell holes around. Nice and friendly.

This is a comfortable pub with plenty of beer and drink options. We also had a pub dinner that was quite good and at a reasonable cost. We were 'entertained' by a couple of men playing darts which we found fascinating because apparently the scoring is not based on hitting the bulls-eye as a target. We dropped in several times...

A great local for Bloomsbury. A couple of blocks south of Euston Road and you are in the warm, friendly atmosphere of the boot. This historic pub is mentioned in Dickens' "Barnaby Rudge". Great keg ales and beers and pub food at reasonable prices. Very good burgers.

A really nice friendly pub with a ok selection of drink, close to the soulless pubs of Kings Cross. Worth to 2 minute walk from Euston Road.

Nice unassuming pub. Very friendly in the middle of the day. Get whatever's on tap; it will be tasty.

2 mins walk off Euston road. Friendly staff , basic pub food. Homemade burger/slaw was good at non-London prices. Having lived here for 9 months , you can pay twice as much, get less and worse and without a smile. Don't judge a book but it's cover - give it a go.

My self and my daughter were staying in a nearby hotel and wanted somewhere to eat. This pub came up. 3/4 mins from our hotel it was ideal. We had a fab welcome and ordered our drinks. All the tables were full. A good sign in my opinion. We asked a member of staff (Michelle) if there were any other... More

We visited this pub during Eastern just for drink some beer. This a classic irish-touched pub. The service is friendly and the other guests too. When you enter the pub the stuff and a lot of guests welcome you with a friendly smile. The prices are normal for a central London pub. We just tasted different beers and didn't ordered... More

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 better. Go... More
