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

Very disappointing meal at lunchtime on a Friday. It was not busy Had the rib eye steak - rare - it came out almost well done and very chewy. 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

Pub food at its best, with no doubt the friendliest staff i have ever had to pleasure to be served by. A Sunday night here is utter joy, with apparently weekly jam sessions, accompanied by their delicious roast dinners, it'd be heresy to claim this place was anything other than amazing. Certainly a spot worth trawling the back-streets of Kings... 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.

I was staying in London for work reasons, after a long day of meetings I went venturing around Kings Cross for food. It started tipping it down so all I wanted to do was find the nearest pub. Half and hour and 6 pubs later (all others were full) I spied The Harrison down a side road. Probably the least... More
