A little gem at Euston. Kind of hidden. I had to use google maps. But it was not really that hard to find. If you turn right when you leave the train station. You will get it on your right hand after about 4 minutes. Lovely charmy place. Can be a bit crowded. Available beers is shown on a screen. Euston Tap do have a better selection, but this place is really well worth a visit also!
Visited on 29th July 2016. A few minutes walk from Euston this is an old corner pub, seating in the street plus a mix of seating inside. Screens showing a list of beers, not kept up to date with a mix of gravity and handpull. Tried a couple of the beers, one from each and the handpull is much better with some condition in the beer. Prices are high with pints around £4.40 but do offer 50p discounts for CAMRA and others. Service is OK. Itís not a pub I particularly like and donít visit often. The Euston tap has cheaper, better cask ales and is much handier for the station.
First of all, letís address the Bree Louiseís faults straight on: itís a bit sticky, the staff speak varying degrees of English, theyíre out of quite a few of the advertised ales, and the gravity cask can be slightly iffy. However if I had a pub like this near my house it would become a second home. 18 (well, fewer, but 18 are advertised) cask ales compliment 10 ciders along with a small array of well-chosen craft (my biggest bugbear: only 2 out of the 5 were available). No music to drown out the conversation. A proper town pub in the city. And the CAMRA discount takes it below my localsí prices in Ely. Under normal circumstances Iíd happily drink here all afternoon but by God are you spoilt for choice in this area, so a swift half or two will suffice.
Bree Louise With a cider/cask focus this pub has some intriguing selections but sticks to the traditional closing time of 11pm which is lame. Nice looking bare bones local pub, decent service. Not worth going out of your way for but if you are in the are you should pop in. 72
Terrible, just plain awful, a real ale pub selling poor beer at very high prices, even allowing for the fact that this is London. I couldnít finish my pint from the Windsor and Eton brewery, the ale was dire. The pub could really do with a good scrub, hygiene levels were sorely lacking.
Corner pub in the residential area immediately to the west of Euston Station. This pub is traditional in style but fairly ordinary in the main and doesnít put a huge amount of effort into its look. It does however have a decent enough row of ales that may warrant a look, certainly so if you have time to kill before a train and donít fancy the cramped Euston Tap. That said this pub was heaving on the Saturday afternoon I was in here, although that was very much down to the fact it was the last day of the 6-Nations rugby tournament with England playing at the time.
