Thereís lot of good things to be said about this Fullers pub, not least the very full range of Fullers ales in keg, cask and bottle form - unless youíve specifically sought out the range in the past there should be something new or interesting for you to try here as thereís a great choice. The cask is not exclusively brewer orientated either and a guest or two exists here if you want some variation. Itís located on the upper level of the revamped station at the far end of the concourse that is open to all, not just commuters, which makes it a go-to destination if you are in the area or waiting for a train, although itís by no means cheap in either drink or food which is served here. As the name suggests it is the old Royal Mail Parcel Yard offices which have been converted and theyíve kept the various corridors in tact with the numerous offices and rooms opened up to provide the quaint and comfortable drinking dens with the features of the fine old building and its exposed brickwork providing the ambiance. Rail users are kept informed of their train times and platform numbers by an electronic board by the entrance which also includes an indoor balcony overlooking the busy concourse below.

Visited this flagship Fullers bar on Weds 13th Nov at 4.45pm.
Situated between platforms 8 & 9 at Kings Cross station, the Parcel Yard is up a clearly signed staircase that overlooks the station concourse and platforms. Once on the main level there is a sign for the íLoft Barí up a further flight of stairs to the right as you enter, though I didnít venture up there. The main floor feels like the proverbial rabbit warren with a number of different rooms and snugs spanning from the main approach to the bar which is straight ahead from the entrance staircase. The general feel of this venue is grandmas parlour, wooden floors, old carpets, low wooden chairs and tables, tin plate signage many of which is railwayana.
The place was fairly busy for the time, but at one of Londons main railway stations this was no surprise. That said I was served promptly and found a table to one of the side rooms that had a íreserved from 6pmí sign on it.
The clientele was largely commuters, travellers and local office workers although there were quite a few groups and the place carried a good vibe.
At the business end the beer range.is as good as any Fullers bar (possible exception of the Union Tavern). All the Fullers and Gales regulars plus 3 guests including beers from Notting Hill and Butcombe. Plenty of bottled Fullers offerings alo including some Vintage Ales. One downside is pricing, £4 for a pint of Fullers Black Cab Stout doesnít represent great VFM but you pay for the location!
Overall a solid pub, great look and feel, good for Fullers seasonal ticks and a few guests, pretty much as good as on station bar you will find in the UK, York and Sheffield taps aside. If you want to do a Fullers pub on a trip to London the Parcel Yard has to be the top pick !!!

A very good station pub, with twelve handpumps and a further 6 or 9 keg taps. Once the parcel depot for Kingís Cross station, the Parcel Yard has been nicely converted. Itís light and airy, with several rooms which give a flavour of what it must have been like as a sorting office. The range of beers is good too, with ales from smaller craft breweries sitting alongside Fullerís own brews.

Large pub inside Kingís Cross Station. Standard service. They have lots of different Vintage Ales including some of the older Vintages. Apart from that they have different Fullers and a couple of guests on cask and even a few guest bottles.

Nice place for a station pub - large and neatly done out, and Fullers beers are always a winner.

Visited here with Jackie & Simon on Saturday 21st April 2012. Impressively refurbished pub with a large and airy feeling with space aplenty. Nice layout and easy to access from station concourse. I believe that their were six beers on offer and it looked like a couple of these were guests, though as I didnít buy the round in here I am not 100% sure. We had one of the Fullers bottled rarities from the reserve range. I was rather taken with this place, and if in the vicinity or at the station would definitely pay a return visit.
