Pretty noisy, even without a band downstairs.

A popular, open-plan pub serving a wide selection of British and imported beers to accompany a decent pub menu. Friendly service.

I popped in for a quick bite late on a Wednesday lunchtime. There were a few tables left and the atmosphere is casual and relaxed. I had a cheese, mustard and roast pork sandwich with salad. It was a generous portion, extremely tasty and cost £5.20. That takes some beating

This was my second visit to the Harrison. The first time (early on a Saturday evening for drinks) was a delight: friendly, helpful staff, nice atmosphere, good range of drinks. On the basis of that experience I went back with a group of colleagues for a meal on a weekday evening. We had reserved a table which was fortunate as... More

Visited this restaurant with my husband and two friends. Holly had researched somewhere we could eat that was near Kings Cross/Euston. I would say don't be put off by the appearance of The Harrison as it is the food you are coming for. We had one beef and three lamb, which were accompanied by parsnip, carrots, roast potatoes, broccoli and... More

Service was pleasant but slow - cutlery was dirty - staff became distinctly unfriendly when asked to change it.The floor was dirty and the place looked as if it needed a... More

One of the nicest meals we had in London around Kings Cross. It has a nice local pub atmosphere unlike some really tourisy ones in London.Good prices and lovely beer considering we are from up North! Hubby still raving about their veggie soup now. Would definately visit again if around this area in future and bringing friends and relatives too

Really delicious home cooked Sunday roast- recommended! Great Yorkshire puddings, gravy and roasted veg. Go if you are in the area. Just set back 5 mins walk from kings cross- gets you away from the busy chain places.

The Harrison is a great little neighborhood pub with superb food. We went based on the TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The food was fresh and cooked to order with great care. We had the confit of chicken and the pan-fried sea bass. Both excellent. It was early on Saturday night (7PM) and surprisingly quiet. I wish we could... More

Fantastic find thanks to Trip Advisor. Well worth a visit. The food and service were both excellent and there was a great atmosphere with live Irish music.

Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
