A natural Britsh pub that specialises in beer and is onmly 5 minutes easy walk from the Kings Cross St Pancras transport hub. What is not to like. AND there is not "background" music, only live and sometime impromptu. Lots of nice components of a good pub, though it is not a brewpub as far as I am aware.
Great little place near Kings Cross. Traditional, cozy interior with a back garden area and street seating to boot. Only a small TV. Reasonable number of taps with good rotation. In addition to trad and modern craft British beers, they have a few high-end guest taps to serve the local geeks. Recommended!
Popped in here while waiting for my train as only a few minutes from kings cross. Nice looking pub ’traditional style pub". They had one of there own beers on my vist, and a range of cask and keg beers. If this range was in my town, I’d be there all the time. But it might be normal for London. Friendly staff, even though the bar was packed. The prices seemed high for my shires wallet, but I was in the big smoke. Definitely head here again is I have time waiting for a train.
Visited on Friday 26th February 2016. Nice old boozer a few minutes walk from Kings Cross. Place was heaving and full of folk in the way. Hard to see what was available at the bar but managed after much hipster shuffling. Good range of cask and keg beers. One of their own on tap. Beer quality good. Prices not too bad. I’d go back and try and pick up more of their own beers. Maybe on a quieter night as it is a decent old pub.
This is a pleasant pub within easy walking distance from St. Pancras Station and the Eurostar terminal. It is on a pleasant residential road in a quiet area which is surprising in relation to where it is. The pub was buzzing and busy on our visit, conversations leading the way. It was a touch hard to find out what was available as the bar was packed. A pretty decent place to visit.
An excellent spot quite close to Kings Cross station, although in a surprisingly quiet, tucked-away little corner. You can enjoy a good range of cask and craft keg beers in fairly basic, but comfortable surroundings. has a pleasant, lived-in feel. They’ve been supposed to install a brwery in the basement for a rather long time but hadn’t yet brought the project to fruition last time I looked in. Service is friendly, knowledgeable and beer-savvy.
Small-ish very typical traditional English pub with a nice vibe (and slightly musty smell - at least on the day I were there) but with a surprisingly good selection of craft beers. Good location and friendly service so - as I’m in the area once in a while - I’ll be back there. There’s also a piano and if you’re lucky someone uses it. :-)

I visited the Queens Head, Thursday 30th October 2014. I had never been here before but with Craft, Clerkenwell, The Gunmakers and Bottledog (closest) all in striking distance this could either be near the start or finish of a pleasant little crawl that starts up or near Kings Cross/St Pancras and ends at Chancery Lane tube. The pub is a lovely pub on a smartish residential area (looks pricey around here) just off a busy arterial road that leads up to/from the aforementioned mainline station. Another pub that is an oasis of calm. It is a long, simply furnished pub with bar ahead to your LH side as you enter and seating mostly to RH side and rear but some comfier slob out sofas at front of pub. Admittedly it was quiet on my visit but it did appear spacious, though the garden/patio out back must rank as the smallest that I have ever seen, its great, but so, so tiny, three to four people out here and you are getting crowded at the one table. The service from the young bar lady was very good, beer choice also v.good. I had a Lagunitas Sumpin Extra, it was very pokey at 8.5% but a damn good DIPA. I really liked it here and glad I made the effort to seek out.
