Nice to walk into a Fuller’s pub and see a range of guest beers - not a feature of many Fuller’s pubs (not that I don’t enjoy Fuller’s beers sometimes too). Views over the buses coming and going outside Euston station is a great backdrop....
A really nice and good looking pub close to Euston Station. Well worth a visit. The only problem is that they have a quite ordinary beer selection. You might find one or two new beers. BUT Euston tap, Cider tap and Bree Louise is really close. Also nice places, and FAR better beer selection.
Visited on Thursday 18th Feb 2016. Been in here many times over the years but since the Euston Tap opened this was first visit it an while. Upstairs bar with a couple of rows of Fullers offerings plus guests. Picked up a new Abbeydale Dr Mortons beer which was in good nick and tried a Fullers rugger offering, service was good. Plenty of room, ideal for the golden blonde loving bus enthusiast as you can sit and watch the world go by at Euston bus station. I’ve never really been a huge fan of the place but it looks much better than it used to and the beer range was decent. I may pop back but the Tap gets prioirity.
I’ve walked past the Doric Arch (formerly the Head of Steam) so many times but been put off by rumours of it being a rough and unpleasant station bar. How wrong I was! It’s actually quite nice once you get past the anonymous tiled entrance and up the stairs. There are old railway signs on the wall and it has a cosy feel, which was completely unexpected. They have 15 hand pumps and 10 keg taps, with a much wider range of beer than is usual in Fuller’s pubs, and the service was friendly.

Unremarkable Fuller’s pub just outside Euston station. Selection of real ales is decent (5 Fuller’s and 3 guests), featuring St Austell, Great Heck and Truman, but the beer I had was too warm. The big question is: why go here with the Euston Tap so close by? It shows sport, it’s pretty friendly, but other than that it doesn’t inspire.

Not a bad pub at all. Was expecting less for being a railroad station pub. Fuller´s selection on cask, some other british micros. Nice wood interior.
Lovely pub with dark brown furniture and varied interior. Good service. The selection consisted of course mainly of Fullers but they had a couple of guest casks as well. If you’re near Euston and need more space than Euston Tap or Cider Tap can off, this is a good choice. They also open earlier than the other two.
