About the Pub

No Limits are now running the place and have added hostel accommodation. Contrary to fears there is still cask beer, Doom Bar. Opposite the St Pancras Alms Houses, this blue tiled pub stands on the corner with Grafton Terrace, just a few doors down from where Karl Marx once lived. Walk back into another era and admire the horseshoe bar that divides the pub into 3 areas. The back area to the left has a table football machine and a pull down television screen to right. The L-shaped bar, above which is a very stuffed fish, dominates one room. This is very much a locals' pub with dartboard, large cabinet displaying silver sports trophies and television in the corner. There is a pull down screen for big events. The upholstery and carpet is blue balanced by wood wall panelling and large plants on the windowsills. The pub is food free. Listed on CAMRA's London Regional inventory.

Historic Interest

Local Camden listing:- A mid 19th century public house on the corner of Grafton Terrace and Southampton Road. Of three storeys with rendered elevations, rusticated quoins and window architraves. It is a storey taller than the neighbouring terraces which enhances the visual landmark status it has within the streetscape. It was given a major refit between the wars, as indicated outside by the buff and mottled dark blue faïence facing. The dividing walls were progressively cut through between about 1973 and 1986, but you can still gain a good sense of how the pub was laid out half a century or more ago. There were three rooms, each with its own external doorway and also an off-sales area entered from Grafton Terrace which remained in use till the late 1970s. There are plenty of inter-war features remaining. These include extensive wall panelling, exposed timbers in the ceilings (to create an olde worlde effect) and the bar counterand back fitting. The most intact part of the Lord Southampton is the left-hand rear area which forms an intimate panelled space with its own glazed hatch to the servery. It’s here that the door to the gents’ leads off and from it a big surprise – to get to the gents’ you need to walk over a steel bridge spanning a small enclosed yard below.
