A unique little square building along the main road, they have a good dozen beers of varying styles. Good service, seating outside when it's nice. Heavy on the locals again, don't expect much representation beyond south England.
Still one of the best places in London. Granted, there are a heck of a lot more than there was when this place first opened, but it still usually has a great selection of cask and keg, and guaranteed new ticks. Often they get new releases, and it seems that beers get their debut rating when tried here. Inside is a tad dank, but the upstairs now has natural light, making it a bit more welcoming. Staff are usually quick, although I have witnessed a few occasions of some rather curt behaviour from some of them. For the most part, though, they’re very pleasant.
Located in front of Euston station. 8 cask taps, and almost 20 keg taps. Downstairs area is largely taken up by the bar / serving space, but their is more indoor seating up the spiral staircase, and when weather permits there is a "garden" area with seating, and small high tables on either side of the pavement. Always a decent choice of beers which in my experience are well kept.
Actually preferred the cider tap when it was open (just for a change) but that is now Euston Tap (East) and you can't go wrong with this bar (or any of the other railway taps I've visited. Great selection of keg and cask beers with the cask ones being well priced (£4 for a pint of Five Points Railway Porter). Service was fine though did see someone else complain about their drink and say they wouldn't be back. Good selection of cans and bottles too. Upstairs seating isn't convenient if you've a lot of luggage (winding staircase). Outside seating too which would be good on a warm day. Good music throughout the last visit.
Tiny bar by the entrance to Euston station. Fine selection of 24 beers, 6-8 are cask with the remainder on keg. The place is let down by poor service (often very diffident & borderline rude staff), and disgusting toilets which are upstairs via a steep spiral staircase. I’m unsure why money has clearly been spent on the toilets in the East Lodge, that needs to be replicated here

Visit on a Friday evening, October 2016. Two level place with the 2nd up a winding staircase. Probably the best bottle selection I saw in ten days in Britain, and interesting things on tap I had not seen elsewhere. It was busy but staff was friendly and happy to take a moment to discuss other stops on my evening pub crawl.
This one had so many more people than the East one, proper bottle selection here. About the same number of taps & cask. Not much difference in quality of offerings during my visit. Looks the same as the other one which is obvious given what the building used to be. Honestly I didn’t get why this one rates that highly one or two international beers but nothing impressive, had a Lagunitas IPA which is far from an impressive USA beer & I have seen it other far less geeky places. Draft is good, usual suspects in UK beer scene, some more traditional stuff but nothing crazy or wowing. Atmosphere was not hugely inviting. Not a bad place but I don’t get the monster score or the far high rating than the East location, East location changed its concept a lot I heard & the other concepts had lower success so that might explain that. Bottles were the likes of Tiny Rebel, Napar, popular modern craft styled beer,… Bigger USA names like Green Flesh. If only it were a bit cosier. Give it a slightly higher score for the bottle selection. It is not a bad bar by any means just the love is a bit too big in my opinion but it has history.
