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

A great place for a pint and food! Great prices, atmosphere and friendly staff. Haddock and sandwiches were yummy! Good selection of beer.

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

I had the roast beef on a Sunday and my wife had the roast lamb. Probably the best Sunday roast either of us have had in 3 years of living in London

We had a traditional roast dinner here one Sunday, and enjoyed it very much. The veg were cooked more than we prefer, but there were plenty of them and the flavor was good. Nice lamb roast for us, beef and chicken and salmon also available. The regular dinner menu looks more adventurous, but the traditional Sunday lunch roast was homely... More

I was staying near by so I thought I'd give this place a go, the plan was to have a pint with dinner and read up on the next stop on my trip. I ordered the Sunday roast which was wonderful, with a Yorkshire pudding that puts mine to shame. The staff were lovely and were up for a chat,... More

I read about the Harrison and decided to go for a walk and find it. It is a bit out of the way and I thought I might of gotten lost looking for it. Fortunately, I kept looking, and it was really worth it. I had the Pork Medallion which was jaw dropping good. I topped it off with an... More
