The Euston Tap is in one of a pair of elegant classical style lodges which originally flanked a huge archway and are now the only remaining structures of the entrance to Euston station from when it opened in 1837. The other lodge houses the Cider Tap.
The bar is in a necessarily smallish, square room with traditional green tiling below the dado rail and thereís a vertiginous spiral staircase leading to a second, windowless room and the rather unappealing toilets up top. Outside thereís a small triangular patio with a parasol and some high top tables and chairs where you can lean or perch and watch the world go by. Itís surprisingly quiet outside (relatively speaking) as the trees tend to muffle the noise, and perhaps soak up some of the fumes, from the busy Euston Road and the buses going in and out of the station. This being a main London terminus, however, itís not unusual to get hassled by the winos who hang round the station.
The 20 or so beers available on tap are listed on blackboards on either side of the bar and the taps protrude from a wall at the back. Not all of them are labelled and itís wise to order by number so that the bar person doesnít get dizzy by constantly having to turn round and check whatís what.

I canít add much else than to echo the sentiments of other raters regarding the venue itself. The potential is definitely there and I can understand itís still relatively new, but it really lacks charm and character as a beer bar. The priority - meaning beer, is just too inconsistent by way of conditioning, dispensing and pricing. ET does feature interesting casks, and always Marble and Thornbridge but you donít always know what your getting quality wise. Itís something that seriously needs to be looked into by the proprietors. Iíve noticed on numerous occasions that they donít take constructive criticism well, and as a patron, I donít think itís unfair to voice my concern especially when paying higher end prices for beer. And itís a shame as one definitely canít fault the range of beers on draught and whatís available in bottle. The staff do what they can to be friendly and show enthusiasm but at times it feels forced rather than sincerity. I honestly hope things can improve as the foundation is there already as one of the premier beer bars in London. Iíll check in regularly and see how it goes.

Have popped by the Tap many times since it opened in Nov í10, most recently 01/08/12.
Great old building - gate house and final remnants from the former incarnation of Euston station before it was concreted in the 60ís.
Smallish bar downstairs surrounded by 2 fridges. Small number of stools to seat perhaps 8 to 10 people down the sides.
Via the spiral staircase there is a smallish room and seating for 25 or so people. Seating also available outside in the beer garden (again small - 20 or so?).
19 keg taps and 8 cask.
Cask usually from around the UK, keg a good mix including usually at least 2 from Germany, Belgium, Czech, 4 or 5 US and some UK keg.
Good bottled selection in fridges either side of the bar.
No food available - last time I noticed you could order pizza in. Crisps, nuts etc available behind the bar.
Service always decent but can get A must on a tour of good watering holes in London.

Great pub. I worked here for about 2.5 months from when it opened in November 2010 until January 2011; but I donít think I bring any bias when I say this place is fantastic. The range is likely the best in London, with competition perhaps from CPK. Prices on cask ale are better than you will find almost anywhere in London, especially considering the range, quality and condition. The bottles and some of the kegged beers are quite expensive, so when people say "the beer at Euston Tap is expensive" thatís what theyíre referring to. The ambience here is interesting, something like industrial-chic, and given that the building is historic the management was limited with how they could renovate it. For awhile there was only one toilet, then they added a porta-loo outside, then added a second toilet upstairs. The space is not large but can hold more people than you would think, and the wrap-around bar makes ordering a bit easier. The music selection payed over the PA system is best in London. Period. (Iíd like to think I got them started on the right foot in this regard.) The food options are alright, with crisps and nuts available at the bar, and you can usually order pizza from a nearby pizzaria and they will deliver it. The staff is great, for the most part, and some of the bartenders really know their stuff. I try to stop in here once a week.

Me and Loz visited this place Sat Noví 13th 2010. I quite like the building, its a little quirky and appears to be one of a pair of gatehouses built for Euston Station. Inside it was still interesting but very small, there was a nice old metal spiral staircase leading up to a larger room and a single toilet I guess that they are going to have to sort something out regarding a disabled toilet. The bar could have been better laid out, Iím not convinced the horsehoe sort of shape works as it juts out to far forward. The beer list was fine, a couple of Marble beers including Dobber and Manchester Best plus a good selection of other stuff including a pretty large selection of bottled beers. It didnít really do anything wrong, its just that something didnít seem right, Loz found the stools uncomfortable and you had to sit up against the wall, admittedly there was seating upstairs but we were only here for the one beer. Beers seemed in pretty good nick, staff friendly although appeared a bit bored and wandered around picking bottles of beer out of the fridge and reading labels and looking at pictures on the wall. Not 100% sure about this place but prepared to give it the benefit of the doubt as itís new and will try again at some point.

In a historic gatehouse that is cool but tiny. There is a patio though, but in quite a busy area. The bar does smell a bit of sour beer. Service was pleasant and they were keen to offer samples, but it was slow. selection was pretty good with a nice range of bottles you can get to go. Prices were reasonable for the area.

We have been here several times now, close to the Bus and Railway stations and can be seen from The Doric Arch. The gatehouses have a slight feel of a gentlemanís toilet unfortunately, allied to this, there is a pervading aroma of disinfectant. The problem is that the gents upstairs is in a poor state. However despite the cold feel of the place and lack of ambiance, the beer range is terrific, there is always a vast array of beers and styles to choose from and the service is always knowledgeable. Not really a place to linger, more a quick pop in, but really worth a visit.

Strangest looking bar around, located in some swuare stone buildings. Nice to stand out front or sit in the prk and drink. Great selection of to beers and ciders. Pretty resonable prices.

Very cool building conveniently located outside Euston station. The tap selection is clearly the best selling point of this bar, there is always an interesting selection of UK, American, German and Czech brews available. The bottle range is interesting and ever changing, but is mighty over-priced in comparison to other UK venues. There are however more negatives: the limited toilet facilities and over-crowing almost every evening. Itís still worth a visit, but make sure you get there early!
