Visited in December 2015 to kill some time while waiting for a train to somewhere or other. Itís nicely fitted out and has a more comfortable, pubby feel than many station bars. Thatís reinforced by the fact itís a bit tucked away right at the very back of the main concourse. On the down side itís very close to "Platform 9 3/4" so there are bound to be a good number of Potterites milling around in the vicinity. Beers are, unsurprisingly, mainly Fullerís but there are some guests amongst the nine casks & "craft" keg offerings - I picked up Trumans Gunboat Smith which was new for me. Not a beer destination in itself but a very superior specimen as far as station bars go.
If you can get past the Harry Potter fans at platform nine and three quarters and navigate the stairs, you enter a sprawling pub with lots of books and corners. Noisy is the ambience. Service is brisk. Selection is Fullers plus their small guest range. Could do more. But a pint before my train was ok
Right at the back of Kings Cross station, and next to platform 9 3/4. This is a big multiform pub. Can be busy with people waiting for trains, but there is also plenty of space. The beer is hosting Fullers, as youíd expect, friendly a speedy service. It has a touch of the soulless JDW about it.
Took us a bit to find this one. For me this place is all about ambiance and atmosphere. Interior looks great, pretty large, decoration balances between modern and traditional pub. Was rather busy during our visit, with lots of commuters and travelers has this train station feel to it. Selection is more than decent, mostly Fullers casks and some guest ales. All in all nice place, would revisit.
Fullers new flagship pub at Kings Cross Station, just take the escalator from Platform 9 ĺ in the west-northern part of the station. Itís a very large place with many sections and rooms, airy, high ceiling, and in earth-coloured brick and wood dťcor. 12 cask ales, lot of kegs and good ranges of Fullers bottled beers. Mostly Fullers beers but also a few guest ales. Friendly service but the barman had never heard about Fullers Imperial Stout when I asked for a bottle (visited with Finn 27.11.2015).

As far as pubs on station concourses go, this is fairly interesting, and atmospheric. Loads of nooks and crannies. Loads of punters, too, on a Tuesday at 7pm. Beer choice, barring the Vintage Ales (from 1999 onwards), seemed dull, frankly. Despite how busy the place was though, service was quick, and friendly. Ok place when youíre waiting for your carriage home.
