“Great food, great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Not only is this pub a great place to eat (they really care about locally/properly sourced foods and have a good selection of beers) and it's so close to Euston station, but the staff are amazingly kind and helpful. We were travelling whilst trying to meet a deadline and they cheerfully let us use our table as an "office" for about an hour on a busy Friday. An additional bonus to this place is ground floor loos (I'm was on crutches at the time due to a busted foot). This is definately our "local" in London now.

“A great pub, near Euston Station. Great food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Good choice of wine and beers.

The menu has a lot to offer and we were all pleasantly surprised at the good quality meals that were produced.

It gets busy in the evenings so try to get there early on.

Barman was straight to the point with no friendly quips during the quiet periods - no niceties. I won't hold that against the place.

“Friendly, casual, easygoing pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

This friendly place has an open and welcoming feel to it. Have been their twice with a different set of friends. Just off North Gower down the street from Speedy's and offering lots on tap, good crisps, and I can't vouch for the food as I just had the above, but the ambience was excellent. Nobody rushes you, plenty of room, and that old timey English pub feel.
