This was our favorite pub during our five day stay in London. My wife was very happy with the lamb burger and I enjoyed their burgers, fish & chips as well. Great drink selection but limited seating. Conveniently located near St Pancras / Kings Cross.

Visited on a Tuesday night and was quite busy. Great range of real ales and a varied pub menu. The fish and chips were excellent. The landlord made us very welcome and made sure all was well and that we enjoyed the meal.

We popped in here for some food whilst waiting between trains after searching nearby places to eat via Google Maps. It was lovely. Brilliant atmosphere, friendly staff. Food was delicious. I would definitely visit again.

tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
