Visited on Thursday 18th Feb 2016. Been in here many times over the years but since the Euston Tap opened this was first visit it an while. Upstairs bar with a couple of rows of Fullers offerings plus guests. Picked up a new Abbeydale Dr Mortons beer which was in good nick and tried a Fullers rugger offering, service was good. Plenty of room, ideal for the golden blonde loving bus enthusiast as you can sit and watch the world go by at Euston bus station. Iíve never really been a huge fan of the place but it looks much better than it used to and the beer range was decent. I may pop back but the Tap gets prioirity.
Iíve walked past the Doric Arch (formerly the Head of Steam) so many times but been put off by rumours of it being a rough and unpleasant station bar. How wrong I was! Itís actually quite nice once you get past the anonymous tiled entrance and up the stairs. There are old railway signs on the wall and it has a cosy feel, which was completely unexpected. They have 15 hand pumps and 10 keg taps, with a much wider range of beer than is usual in Fullerís pubs, and the service was friendly.

Unremarkable Fullerís pub just outside Euston station. Selection of real ales is decent (5 Fullerís and 3 guests), featuring St Austell, Great Heck and Truman, but the beer I had was too warm. The big question is: why go here with the Euston Tap so close by? It shows sport, itís pretty friendly, but other than that it doesnít inspire.

Not a bad pub at all. Was expecting less for being a railroad station pub. Fullerīs selection on cask, some other british micros. Nice wood interior.
Lovely pub with dark brown furniture and varied interior. Good service. The selection consisted of course mainly of Fullers but they had a couple of guest casks as well. If youíre near Euston and need more space than Euston Tap or Cider Tap can off, this is a good choice. They also open earlier than the other two.
Visited several time. Placed close to Euston Station, itīs easy to get to. More cosy inside than the outside looks, lots of train related stuff as a part of the deco. Mainly Fullers beer on tap, but also guest beers are available. They do traditionel pub food as well, but havenīt eaten here. Friendly staff and beers are mostly in good condition.
Once one of the destination pubs for good beer in London when under the guise of the íHead of Steamí.
Popped by the summer before last under itís present set up under Fullers and pleased to see it still carries 2 or 3 guests as well as the Fullers range.
Still the same pokey grimy hole with the mock train compartment in the wall!
And you still need to get a code for the toilet downstairs from behind the bar (to stop junkies/vagrants wandering in off the street !)
Beer and service were fine.
Didnít try any food but it used to be pretty basic here - guessing it may be better now?
Once a beer destination in London - worth popping in if you have the time but with the Euston Tap within pissing distance this wonít happen very often for me!
