An excellent spot quite close to Kings Cross station, although in a surprisingly quiet, tucked-away little corner. You can enjoy a good range of cask and craft keg beers in fairly basic, but comfortable surroundings. has a pleasant, lived-in feel. They’ve been supposed to install a brwery in the basement for a rather long time but hadn’t yet brought the project to fruition last time I looked in. Service is friendly, knowledgeable and beer-savvy.

Small-ish very typical traditional English pub with a nice vibe (and slightly musty smell - at least on the day I were there) but with a surprisingly good selection of craft beers. Good location and friendly service so - as I’m in the area once in a while - I’ll be back there. There’s also a piano and if you’re lucky someone uses it. :-)

I visited the Queens Head, Thursday 30th October 2014. I had never been here before but with Craft, Clerkenwell, The Gunmakers and Bottledog (closest) all in striking distance this could either be near the start or finish of a pleasant little crawl that starts up or near Kings Cross/St Pancras and ends at Chancery Lane tube. The pub is a lovely pub on a smartish residential area (looks pricey around here) just off a busy arterial road that leads up to/from the aforementioned mainline station. Another pub that is an oasis of calm. It is a long, simply furnished pub with bar ahead to your LH side as you enter and seating mostly to RH side and rear but some comfier slob out sofas at front of pub. Admittedly it was quiet on my visit but it did appear spacious, though the garden/patio out back must rank as the smallest that I have ever seen, its great, but so, so tiny, three to four people out here and you are getting crowded at the one table. The service from the young bar lady was very good, beer choice also v.good. I had a Lagunitas Sumpin Extra, it was very pokey at 8.5% but a damn good DIPA. I really liked it here and glad I made the effort to seek out.

I thought this place was ace. Decent selection of ales on cask and keg. Friendly staff, simple food was top notch (my Spanish meat platter was) and a rustic feel to the place.

Visited Saturday as part of a crawl round Covent Garden and nearby on 16/8/14. What a find this was. Lovely traditional pub inside with a great selection of cask and keg beers.

Very nice pub hidden away somewhat just south of Kings Cross. Friendly service, beer selection not enormous but plenty of options both cask and keg and some good ones. I like this place.

Update... as it now brews albeit on a tiny plant I have changed it to Bewpub status. Beers can be cask or keykeg. A welcome addition to the beer scene in London. Often does beers from new local micros - last visit in Nov.13 - the Clarence & Frederick’s Oat Milk Stout was in fine fettle! Rumours that they will start brewing here, if they have not already. Craft key-keg beers alongside cask-conditioned beers in a nice pub with a laid-back atmosphere. Free wi-fi.

Around a 5 minute walk from King’s Cross/St.Pancras, the Queens Head is a charming Victorian back street boozer with a good choice of local and national micro cask and keg offerings. Visited after 5pm on a Wednesday and the Queens Head steadily filled up during my brief stay. The outside carries an ornate wooden bay window that juts out into the street slightly. On the inside the decor is minimalist, one medium sized room with a narrow annexe to the rear both wooden floored, dimly lit and with low level wooden chairs and tables. The bar is to the left as you enter and carries 4 cask and 5 or 6 keg offerings of note. Service was prompt and friendly and during my call I picked up offerings from Tempest and the Kernel. Other breweries represented included redemption, magic rock and portobello. Well worth the occasional 5 minute detour from the Cross.
