I’m aware this place is now closed, but I’ve visited many times in the past. In recent years I often found the quality of the beer to be pretty poor, to the extent that I stopped going there, despite it being a convenient place to meet friends.
Visited many times through
the years, very close to Euston Station, witch makes it very easy to get to. It is An older traditional city pub, with lots of cask beers, many on gravity, the gravity cask beers can sometimes be a bit dodgy, where the ciders and perries is normal in good condition. They have traditional pub food as well, always well prepared. Normal there is a very friendly and help full staff. You get CAMRA discount as well. - AMBIANCE 2 - SERVICE 7 - SELECTION 10 - FOOD N/A - VALUE 7 - OVERALL 13
Great selection of cask beer. Including gravity fed. Slightly more limited with the kegs. Its basically an more CAMRA place to go when bored of the trendy beers at the Euston Tap. One of my favorite places in London. I love a proper pub me!
A down at heel gem, the cask selection is eclectic and interesting. Unfortunately soon to be demolished for railway expansion, it is to be hoped that the proprieters will come up with something similar in future endeavours.

Visited on a Wednesday evening and place was packed both inside and out which was great to see. Great buzz to the place. Despite how busy it was, service was very efficient and the beers I had were in good shape. Despite some less favourable reviews here, on the evidence of this visit it’s a great pub full of character, charm and decent beer. **Update 22/1/18 - such a travesty that this place will be forced to close before the end of January thanks to HS2 and the redevelopment of Euston station. It is indeed a "proper pub" with great ale and cider selection. Will be a great loss to London pub scene.
Visited on a Saturday early afternoon. Short walk from Euston station. Hidden in an ugly little street. Park benches outside that go around the corner. Inside is a typical English pub, but one that lacks atmosphere imho. Low tables and chairs, carpets, large bar divided in 2 on the right, no music (not a negative per sé). Service was OK, had 2 cask ales and got a 50p discount with my PINT (Dutch CAMRA) card. Nice selection of cask ales, all typical low abv stuff though, and a few craft kegs. Don’t care for ciders, but they had 10 or so on offering. Not a place I’d go to again.
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. It’s not a pub I particularly like and don’t visit often. The Euston tap has cheaper, better cask ales and is much handier for the station.
