Just round the corner from Euston Station and close to numerous underground lines, the Bree Louise has long been a haven for real ale drinkers.
Sadly this pub is under threat and is due to be demolished sometime around 2017 due to the expansion of Euston Station to become the terminus of the new High Speed Rail Link to Birmingham.
This will be a real shame as the Bree Louise is always busy providing what is basically a permanent Beer festival with a large number of cask ales both on draught and gravity.
In addition they offer both a good variety of quality ciders and tasty, inexpensive, if rather basic pub grub. The staff are usually helpful and often a real delight.
I do hope that the Bree Louise will be able to relocate, if not it will be a real loss to Londons discerning beer drinkers. So try it while you can

I have mixed feelings about this placed: On the one hand itís really run down, but on the other there was a friendly atmosphere when I visited. The staff wasnít too impressive as they didnít bother updating the board and they didnít put new casks on to replace the ones that had run dry. The selection was good though in particular as far as ciders go. The food was okay as well.

We visited here on Thursday 28th March, after weíd been to the Euston Tap and Diwana (curry house). It had been a number of years since Iíd last been to the Bree Louise, to be honest I wasnít overly struck on it then and I was even less impressed with it now. On the plus side it is very close to Euston in a nice little neighbourhood and it has a v.large and forever changing selection of beers, it is also v.well frequented and is clearly a popular place. On the negative side it is the business that is also its achillies heel. We found it v.difficult to get to the bar, there is a pervading aroma of stale beer, carpets in pubs are not a great idea. My beer was far too warm, I was also not overly impressed with the staff who seemed somewhat reluctant to halt their conversation to serve me (and others) Loz had a Windsor & Eton Conqueror, I had the 440 collaboration ale by the same brewery, to be fair Loz gad a v.good beer. I am not sure that I would rush back here again when there are better pubs in the vicinity, but if it upped its game, got rid of the carpets kept beer a little better, who knows, it could be an absolute corker.

Decent selection, real scruffy boozer decor. Good place, but prefer Euston Tap just around corner.

Back Street boozer on Cobourg St 3 minutes walk from Euston.
Dingey and scruffy outdated 70ís interior. It hasnít changed from the previous incarnation, The Jolly Gardeners, which I occasionally popped into in the mid 90ís.
Beer range looks promising but the quality often lets it down, particularly from the stillage. Having been let down on these before I once decided on a pint that wasnít necessarily first choice but was cask. I ordered it and they proceeded to head to the stillage and draw it off!!!
Service is OK - 50p discount for CAMRA.
Not a place I tend to bother with anymore with the Euston Tap around the corner and even more convenient for Euston, in fact I think just the one visit in 2012 and not at all missed !

I loved this place... great pies, beer and cider... what more can you ask for. A nice selection of cask and gravity ales with a strong selection of ciders as well. Casks seemed to rotate fairly quickly. In side is a bit rough with out too much seating. Service was a touch slow but was also crowded during both of my visits. I loved both of the pies that I had here and thought the prices were quite nice for the food and beer. Given the proximity to Euston and Cider Taps well worth a stop in!

Real ales and ciders on casks and taps. Good selection. Always something new to drink. A friendly staff (2009, 2010, 2011)

Bit of a scruffy place. Good range of beers and ciders - a few on handpump but more on gravity stillage. The condition of gravity dispensed beers can be dodgy - be particularly wary of any where there cask is at an extreme angle as it may have been on for rather longer than it should have been. Despite itís shortcomings, itís still a very handy place to have right next to Euston station and would be evne more so were it not for the proximity of the Euston tap. Service is usually efficient even when itís crowded. Discount for CAMRA members.

The Bree Louise is a pokey pub located very close to Euston Station. It has a run-down vibe to it, with yellow lighting, dusty floors and spartan decoration. Thereís about 15 beers on cask available. On my visit, I was disappointed with the selections available. Most beers were pretty mediocre bitters, with a mild and the odd pale ale on offer. A solitary offering from Sambrookís was the only local beer available. My half pint of Moorhouse Black Cat wasnít in optimal condition. The prices were cheap, and CAMRA members do get a discount. The food (pies) was plentiful but not particularly good. The service was fine. Overall, this place needs to up its game. Perhaps a case of a famous place resting on its laurels? Its sister pub, The Duchess Of Cambridge, is much nicer.
