looks the same as Euston Tap on the inside. Focus on cider, with 12 taps. Tried a fw cider and had a decent time. Staff seemed a bit uninterested.

Located opposite the great Euston Tap in a similar size space but with a completely different feel. Interior boasts much more wood (think wooden bartop, back shelving & large wooden barrels for tables). Cider list is scrawled by hand on a large chalkboard that takes up the entire back wall.
Itís a lovely bar which has never seemed busy on all my visits, and almost always populated by tourists, usually American, eager to try Englandís famous cider.
And thatís where the Cider Tap falters. The selection concentrates mainly on still Bag in a Box "real" cider & perry. Itís a large selection, usually around 15-20 on offer, but you sense it desperately needs two large double fridges full of bottled sparkling cider to truly represent a fuller picture of what UK cider is capable of. Not the limited small bottled selection they currently have.
Staff, although helpful, similarly have almost no cider knowledge besides what theyíve tried from the cider selection themselves. Anyone visiting London should pay a visit to Mother Kellys who have a much better bottled cider selection in my opinion. If the Bag in a Box cider does it for you, then Bree Louise round the corner usually has around 6 on offer as well.

Visited just after opening on Monday 20/04/15 - thatís 3pm, not 1200, have corrected the info on the entry.
Former gate house of the Doric Arch on the Euston Road, bang opposite the Euston tap, sister venue.
Set up inside is a little different, bar to right as you enter, similar spiral staircase to the upstairs level.
About 10 or so ciders on tap during my visit, with my Dad - heís the cider man, but you are of course allowed to bring beers across from the Euston Tap and vice versa. There was also a token beer on offer - Bernard Pils.
Service was friendly and tasters were offered freely.
Bench seating outside in addition to the rather small interior.
Solid venue and seemingly a decent choice of ciders.

Really good place opposite Euston Tap. Cool to see a place dedicated to cider.

Not necessarily fair to rate this, as I was only here very briefly, once. I liked the environment, prettier, and less full of Londonís suited twats than its sister next door. There was an attempt at a cider = rustic tone, which worked for me. Choice of ciders was good - several would have been ticks for me. The one I had was pukka. Alas I donít know how quickly it rotates. If itís just the fixed dozen, end of, then I would probably drop it a couple of points. If Iím passing through Euston and I have just 15 minutes, Iíd pop in here first.

A bit more rustic than the neighbouring Euston Tap, spartan but appealing. Not enough of a ciderhead to know exactly how good the cider list is, but itís certainly extensive.

Not a bad place to pop in for a change of beverages. Revisited over summer and honestly not somewhere I came very much (if at all) whilst I was residing in London. Always quiet on my visits and far from the bustle of traffic passing thru Euston Tap across the road. Having said that, worthy a visit to try a good selection of cider on keg and stillage.

Brilliant if you like cider, the Euston Tapís cousin is a bit rustic chic, a bit Continental cafe. The cider selection is very good but not great: a lot of Lilleyís when I was there and a few others from various parts of England. Keg outnumbers still. Calvados and Normandie cider also available, Strongbow is not. I would however like some better quality ciders, as some are pretty poor. Please note that it isnít as busy as the Euston Tap, and Iíve noticed that it can close significantly earlier.

Just across the small road from Euston tap, and is located in a similar old guardhouse. Cozy place with good service. About 15-20 ciders and perry on tap at fair prices. Ciders is not really my thing, and i have to admit i enjoyed the shot of aged Calvados i had there more then the 2 ciders. But if you are into ciders the place is highly recomanded

Located in the other gatehouse opposite the Euston Tap. Rustic interior, with good range of mainly UK still & sparkling cider on tap and in bottles. Only downside was getting in just after opening meant that afew selections on the board werenít available.
