Traditional Youngs pub between Kings Cross & Holborn. Definitely a boozer feel, which is no bad thing in this area. They have a couple of guest beers as well as the Youngs staples so could be worth a look if you’re passing. Beers have always been in good shape when I’ve popped in. However, if I were in the area (or new to the area) and particularly wanted Youngs beers I’d tend to head for the Lamb, which isn’t far away.

Long standing CAMRA entrant and old school Youngs pub, the Calthorpe Arms is located on the Grays Inn Rd between Kings X and Farringdon. Trad English pub with a local feel, a little off the tourist trap. Cask beers always in decent nick but lacking in choice, just Wells and Youngs standards and seasonals. No reason to seek this venue out but if you’re walking past (Queens Head to Bottle Dog or Craft Clerkenwell) no harm to pop in.

An okay Young’s pub with a somewhat limited selection of mostly their own casks and bottles and a single guest cask. Polite service. Seems to me like a neighborhood pub. No point in going here unless you’re looking for some fairly common Young’s beers.

I always try to visit this one whenever I go to London. Located almost at the corner a Gray’s Inn Road and Calthorpe Street, it is a traditional Youngs pub with a cosy, relaxing and laid-back atmosphere. Just a classic English pub! On my visit in March the real ales on cask were as usual in good condition and included Youngs Winter Warmer, Bitter, Special and Wells Bombardier. It is very convenient that you can buy bottles to take away (Double Chocolate Stout, Ram Rod, Oatmeal Stout, Waggledance, St. George ale, Champion and a few others in the bottle selection) (Visited late 11.03.2008).
