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.....
