Nice big pub upstairs from King's Cross, plenty of seating. The ambiance is the usual English pub, and the taps are mostly macros with one or two craft ales thrown in. Didn't try the food. Decent option if you're in the area but not really a beer geek's paradise.
Visited on 19th August 2017. Upstairs at Kings Cross station you'll find this place, it's not far from the Harry Potter thing. It's a huge place, lots of rooms and the decor is railway themed with a 1930s theme throughout. It's really well done. Beer range is from Fullers with a decent cask range from across differing styles plus some keg offerings and a small bottle selection. Prices are steep, service was decent. Handy place for a tick whilst waiting for a train.
Surprisingly big really, seems fairly old, toilets looked ancient. Still some tourist vibe but not all the way. Located conveniently inside the station and open very early especially given that this is London. Not as crowded as you would feel, actually rather calm. They offer cliché UK food including a vegetarian British breakfast which is neat. Didn’t eat here. About a dozen cask, obviously plenty of Fuller’s were in good condition I think, classical suspects, one or two new ones. Kegs are the usual rubbish. Limited number of bottles, all usual suspect. They did have almost all of the Fuller’s Vintages available for hilarious prices going up to £ 300+ for the oldest vintage, even the newest one was like £ 30, I think that they are for display purposes only. Attentive, friendly service, quite decent far better than you would expect.
A Fullers bar just beside the 9 3/4 station . The pub is old with floors that seems to be from 2 senturies ago. Lots of smaller rooms that have caracter. The normal Fullers beers and some other. Fast service at 11 am.
Visited in December 2015 to kill some time while waiting for a train to somewhere or other. It’s nicely fitted out and has a more comfortable, pubby feel than many station bars. That’s reinforced by the fact it’s a bit tucked away right at the very back of the main concourse. On the down side it’s 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 Fuller’s 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 you’d 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.
