£5.85 for a bottle of Innis & Gunn that is £2 in the shop. Dumped on the bar without a glass ( which i had to ask for) and a sarcastic foreign server who called me darling when I asked for the glass. Music too loud (for the staff, not the customers). Horrible place.

Stopped in a couple of times when I’ve had to wait a while for my train. No atmosphere and service isn’t brilliant. However, the range is good. Last time I was there they had some Meantime brews, some Belgians and some American craft. Not a place that I’d go to spend an evening, but good for a last beer before the train home. They also have wifi, which is good.

Located to the right hand side of the concourse as you enter Charing Cross station, this beer house ’I think’ was the first of this small chain of bars found on the concourses of London mainline stations. Rather flat in ambiance, lets face it railway station bars Dont tend to have a lllcoal vibes, this beer house at least offers a quick bottle or pint of something interesting if you have time to kill waiting for your train. Tap choice is pretty tame, lots of Meantime and few common German/US offerings. 50 or so bottles to go at, again nothing rare, but you may pick up a tick!? By no means come here in search of good beer but make use of it if using the station. I remember the days when railway station bars would offer just a keg bitter and a macro lager or two. We would have cried out for a place like this 10 or 15 years ago but in this day we are spoiled!

Nothing to go on about here. Just a pub trying to hop on the craft beer bandwagon unsuccessfully. Really just a chain style place. Scopey summed it up completely. Pretty much meantime on tap with a few boring extras. Won’t go back

On our way to Charlton to watch their match against Peterborough we found this pub in a corner of the Charing Cross station. Two hand pumps for cask ales, 15 beers on keg and quite a huge selection of bottled beers, many of them from the Coopers Brewery. Nothing special with the place, but enough decent beers to choose from while waiting for a train (visited, 26.11.2012).

A funny little hole in Charing Cross station amidst the travelers and less interesting shops. Some pretty good beers available here, mostly bottled, with an international flavor to it.

An odd space - the bar also seems to be the entrance to various station offices and storerooms! The draught range is OK but mainstream, the bottled range a bit more interesting, All are pricey, however. Flights of three thirds are available at £5. The hot food is microwaved from frozen and of variable quality. Worth a try if you’re waiting for a train, or as a quick stop on a crawl maybe.

This is a new bar located inside Charing Cross station. I think they are trying to jump on the "craft beer" wagon, but fairly unsuccessfully. To summarise in general this is a poor man’s Draft House (e.g. like the one on Tower Bridge). Interior is standard rail station pub, with the added bonus of a live screen with train times! 15 keg beers (no cask) from the likes of Meantime, Innis and Gunn and Liefmans. Draft beer available by 1/3, 1/2 and pint measures, which is good. 50 bottles on offer, with nothing that special, but some decent options - Anchor, Goose Island, Camden, Schneider Weisse etc. Food options are pie and cheese, which is all you really need. Very pricy also - anywhere between £4-£6.50 for a pint. I doubt I will return, unless I am waiting for a delayed train.....
