Pleasant enough Shepherd Neame bar, although its location close to some of the major stations means it has a chain-bar styling to it. It’s not as nice as some other pubs run by this brewer, but the durable traditional fixtures and fittings probably means its easier to keep this place clean and fresh in appearance. Its a corner pub a block south of the Euston Road and you’ll find Shepherd Neame ales in both cask and keg along its bar, which has two sides to it as there’s a part wall separating the service area.
Visited on 22nd August 2016. Just off Euston Road and on a street corner this is a nice looking pub, inside the seating is a little cluttered and the decor is OK. It’s a large open plan place.
Had 5 Sheps beers on cask plus a couple of keg offerings, had a pint of the Goldings Summer beer which was in good condition, maybe not to my taste. Prices are steep at £4.35 for a pint. Go to the Euston tap with beer 60-70p cheaper and much better unless you have a real hankering for Kentish beer.
2015-09-25. Beer selection was just okay, with a handful of Shepherd Neame casks - they own the pub. We found a cozy booth in the corner after clearing away some leftover glassware from the previous residents. It was quite busy at around 6:00 on a Friday with both the after work crowd and the rugby world cup on the TV. The decor is almost a stereotypical British pub from a North American perspective from the carpeting to the wall coverings. It’s nice enough, likely more so during quieter hours, but the beer selection is limited from a beer geek perspective. You will likely visit due to proximity to Euston and King’s Cross station.
Decent side-street boozer found between St Pancras and Euston. Fairly ordinary but there’s some grade A mock-period (read: tacky) wallpaper. This place can get very busy, but it was lively without being packed on my last visit. Only Shepherd Neame on the five cask handpumps, but it’s served to perfection. SN’s more decent bottles such as their IPA are also on offer. Decent enough.
Old pub close to Euston station. 5 cask with Shepherd Neame beers + some keg macroes aswell. Boring selection, but infairly good condition. Food is okies, nothing great, but eatable. Fast service and fairly good value for money
Last visited here in 2009 for a works leaving do.
Long standing GBG entrant (when London didn’t have the strength in depth of pubs it has now - but no doubt CAMRA will insist on it - YES just checked the 2013 GBG and its in there !!!)
Dreary kind of place with well kept, for what its worth, SN beers.
Friendly enough clientle and busy on our visit.
Not one I’d reccomend making an effort for !

Fairly run of the mill pub notable primarily for the fact that’s it’s the only Shepherd Neame pub I know of in London to serve the full range of their cask beers, including the relatively rare Kent’s Best and the current seasonal. That’s five on handpump. Sadly they don’t have the Shepherd Neame microbrewery beers, but I don’t really know which pubs do have them regularly. Certainly none in London as far as I am aware. So, handy for vistors as a one stop shop for clearing up their Shepherd Neame cask scoops in a single location, should they so desire.
