Right at the back of Kings Cross station, and next to platform 9 3/4. This is a big multiform pub. Can be busy with people waiting for trains, but there is also plenty of space. The beer is hosting Fullers, as youíd expect, friendly a speedy service. It has a touch of the soulless JDW about it.
Took us a bit to find this one. For me this place is all about ambiance and atmosphere. Interior looks great, pretty large, decoration balances between modern and traditional pub. Was rather busy during our visit, with lots of commuters and travelers has this train station feel to it. Selection is more than decent, mostly Fullers casks and some guest ales. All in all nice place, would revisit.
Fullers new flagship pub at Kings Cross Station, just take the escalator from Platform 9 ĺ in the west-northern part of the station. Itís a very large place with many sections and rooms, airy, high ceiling, and in earth-coloured brick and wood dťcor. 12 cask ales, lot of kegs and good ranges of Fullers bottled beers. Mostly Fullers beers but also a few guest ales. Friendly service but the barman had never heard about Fullers Imperial Stout when I asked for a bottle (visited with Finn 27.11.2015).

As far as pubs on station concourses go, this is fairly interesting, and atmospheric. Loads of nooks and crannies. Loads of punters, too, on a Tuesday at 7pm. Beer choice, barring the Vintage Ales (from 1999 onwards), seemed dull, frankly. Despite how busy the place was though, service was quick, and friendly. Ok place when youíre waiting for your carriage home.
An oasis of decent (if overpriced) beer in Kings Cross Station. With an old-fashioned feel in a brand new refit, The Yard offers almost all of Fullerís offerings in one form or another: keg, cask and bottle. Enjoy a Vintage Ale for just under £10 or Ďslum ití with a Pride or Chiswick. Some worthwhile guest beers as well. Iíve just found my own personal Platform 9ĺ.
A solid Fullerís outpost. Located upstairs in Kings Cross Station, this place has around 10 casks of mostly Fullerís but also a few other breweries, plus standard kegs and a few decent bottles. There are several rooms to this pub, including a dining area, a sunlight patio, some rooms with living room feel to them. Interesting. Serviceable staff. Average pricing. Probably not a destination pub but a damn fine option if you are looking to kill time while in the Station.
