About the Pub

The pub history dates back to the early eighteenth century, when it was a coffee house, and then a tea garden and resort. It appears to have been rebuilt in the 1920s, when the adjacent block of council flats was put up. Internally, there seem to have been a number of refits, with 1920s fireplaces and more modern features visible. The large single room has a central bar with mosaic work on the bar back. Lots off wood panelling and large mirrors enhance the atmosphere. There are ten handpumps plus a selection of craft keg beer.

The floor is polished wood, with tiles round the bar. The main drinking area, with a 1970s electrolier, extends to a small, heated and partly covered beer garden at the rear: there are also tables along the front terrace. There is piped music but no TV. Breakfast, lunch and dinner served - go to the pub's website for more details - operating an all day menu updated with new dishes every three weeks. Sunday roasts until they have sold out.

The pub is about 350m from Euston main line, tube and bus stations, through a passage from Doric Way. There is a speakeasy cocktail bar, the Cosy Kettle, in the basement that is open after the pub has closed. The pub opening hours that we list were taken from an A-board outside the pub in Feb 2019 and they differ form the hours on the pub's website.
