About the Pub

A visitor in May 2022 reported no cask beer available but a follow up found one cask beer - Five Points Pale. Brick Peckham Pale Ale was also listed on the beer menu but not available. You have to be seated on arrival (table service only) and the price is currently £5.50 for a pint but they have a compulsory 12.5% service charge that took the cost of a pint to £6.19. Note that payment is by card only - cash is no longer accepted.

A relatively new pub, dining room and bar on Granary Square, King’s Cross. The name is inspired by the industrial past of King’s Cross, and the Victorian Lightermen who worked on flat-bottomed barges, known as “Lighters”, on the canals and rivers of London.

On three floors offering great views across Granary Square and the Regent’s Canal, The ground floor has some high tables and stools by the bar but is mostly laid out for eating. The canal-side bar, which is more for drinking, is open Tues to Thu evenings from 4.30pm, from noon on Friday and from 11am on the weekend. Food served from opening until late.

It can get very noisy, especially when busy in the canal-side bar, as the low ceiling and "industrial-chic" decor cause the sound of voices to reverberate, exacerbated by the somewhat unnecessary booming bass from the speakers (which is about all you can discern).
