This is my last stop in London before catching the train back up norf. Great wine - Sauvignon Blanc - and beer selection, if there is time I will have something to eat from the pub menu. Service is friendly and I much prefer it...to waiting in the Virgin lounge (or whatever it is now called) which has a work vibe you don't want when you have finished work. Haven't been since before the lockdown, never thought I would miss Euston station.More

Very good Fullers pub situated right next to Euston railway and bus stations. Been here quite a few times and the ale quality is always excellent. Good choice of Fullers beers, also good choice of lagers, ciders, wines and spirits. Staff are very knowledgeable about...their products on offer and always very welcoming and friendly. Nice interesting decor in this railway themed pub, lots of signs and artifacts on display. Food is always been good when I've eaten here and prices are fine considering its Central London. For me personally, I'm more than happy sat on the top level of the pub by the big windows relaxing with a pint just watching the the comings and goings across the bus station and the station entrance. Nice place to escape to and chill out with a drink and something to eat before catching a train.More

After a trip around London my friend and I fancied a beer, and as we needed to be Euston to catch our train. The pub is well laid out regarding the current situation and you'll have to give your name and number when you enter....It's table service at the moment and you'll pay when your drinks are delivered. The atmosphere is amazing with various pieces of railwayana dotted all over, so ideal for the railway enthusiast. So if you're in the area, do pop in for a drinkMore

Interesting English style pub. Interesting guest real ales. Staff were new I think when we visited as they were polite but didnt know where things were or how to use the tills. Food was ok, but as a new visitor to that corner of London..., we thought it a bit pricey, turned out it was normal.More

I originally chose this place as it was close to Euston and it looked original. I really like the food here it was well priced and just what I needed after a 4 hour train journey. Also loved the collection of different coasters on the...walls, a quirky touch that makes it more personal and homey.More

We have eaten here three times now as the location is perfect for three of us to meet. The staff have always been brilliant, service is great and the food is delicious. One of us is vegan and he’s always been very happy with the...food too (although the choice is limited). We all really enjoy the atmosphere and will definitely be booking again.More

Unlike the Euston Tap, the Doric Arch was packed on the Monday evening we dropped by for a last drink before catching our train. Fortunately, a kind gentlemen allowed the two of us to share his table. It’s a strange place, with a downstairs foyer...that looks nothing like a welcoming, bustling pub. If I didn’t know it was there and that it sells good ale, I would pass it straight by with scarce a glance. That said, it is very usefully placed, being attached to Euston Station itself and climbing the stairs is worth the effort (even if you have to go all the way back down again to the loos!) In addition to Fullers’ own ales, there are usually a couple of guests. I am from the West Midlands, so had to laugh when I saw the Titanic Plum Porter on tap, which was how I got chatting to the North London Locale rep. My wife and I enjoyed a pleasant drink and conversation with him before we headed home. My wife rated the Sauvignon Blanc and I considered both halves I had to be well-kept and on good form. I clean forgot to take advantage of my CAMRA card (as usual!) The setting is pleasant, spacious, with plenty of dark wood, seating/tables and memorabilia to give a backdrop to help support a good atmosphere. Sadly, we missed the four-legged visitors on this occasion. Would have loved to have stayed longer in case one turned up :) The screen with train times is a handy addition – thanks.More

Having acquired a puppy, dining options local to Euston are more difficult to find. However we stumbled across the Doric Arch which not only accepts dogs (and provides water) but is in the station precinct itself, hence very convenient when laden with travel paraphernalia. We...had a variety of ‘starters’ which were of simple construction but very tasty. The main courses looked like standard pub fare (burgers, fish and chips etc) which on observing other diners looked pleasing enough. There was a variety of real ale (it is a Fullers establishment) which pleased husband. Even better despite its situation and it being a Friday night it wasn’t rammed packed and there was space to sit which made for an opportunity to wind down before getting on the night trainMore

To be honest we went to the Euston Tap originally, clocked that it was small, crowded, and feeling neglected (actually the classic nearest-pub-to-a-railway-station tradition) so went to the Doric Arch. And it was a great choice - it's a lovely, pretty spacious pub with comfortable...seating areas and clean tables, a good range of beers etc, and friendly bar staff. I was there in relation to a train journey, but if I lived locally I'd be very happy to think of the Arch as my local.More
