The Tap has been around for about a year now

I have probably visited once a fortnight on average since then

8 real ales and 19 keg taps all housed in a small 2 level stone gate house to the original Euston Statin

The real ales can be as cheap as £2.70 a pint for a 3.something % session beer, which represents excellent value for CLondon

The cask ales are typically British micro's, Bristol Beer Factory and Thornbridge being regulars

The kegs will contain American, Czech, Belgian and German and also British - often Brew Dog

I had a Dark Lager from Calvers, a keg only (I believe) Suffolk brewery on Tuesday of this week (18th Oct), had bever heard of them - so the Tap always throws up interesting and unusual offerings

They have 4 large fridges packed full of bottled beers from around the world

The pricing is a bit cheaper here when compared to The Cask or the Craft

No food available but I think you can order in pizza?

The gatehouse opposite has signage up for the 'Cider Tap'. I was told back in the summer that this was likely to open in September, but no signs of life yet!

I went here after the rave reviews I saw, it was good but nothing great. I think the location is very cleaver but to be honest the selection was good on tap (for UK pubs) but not smashing and not very broad, I did like the fact it had some foreign beers but when I went there probably 30% of the taps were not operating so a little underwhelming. In terms of vibe I though it no better than a lot of British pubs (better beer selection yes) but as far as Vibe goes not really.

Service was good and attentive I was at the main bar so very good from that angle and fairly sound beer knowledge as well.

Another place that's hard to fault. The focus is on a good and ever-changing range of the best beers they can lay their hands on, be it in bottles, cask or keg. What's not to love?

Neat vibe. Nice selection. Great to have near the station so you can arrive early and relax before hopping on the train. Nice service to boot. Small inside but bunch of seats outside. Really interesting spot.

Love this place and the cider place in the matching building across the road! One of the very best selections we saw in London on a recent trip, both cask and tap, as well as a small but very good bottle selection (available to consume there or for take away). Although it doesn't look as if it would fit, there is also a nice lounge upstairs to sit. Highly recommended for selection.

This place is a gem. It has twenty taps, bottles, and great prices. I'm sure I'll visit several more times during my trip. The tap selection is hard to choose from, which is a nice problem to have. They are generous with tasters as you decide what you want.

Euston is in an amazing location for me as its by the station which is always handy for a sneaky one before te train. They have a great rotating selection dependant on imports and the tap selection always has the right balance of UK and Foreign. Food is okay considering there's nowhere to cook it so bar snacks is all you get

Small place by the rail station, and an awesome place to go when I wasn’t feeling the loudness and generic beer at the hostel I was staying at. Great bottle list and a big tap list. Service was very friendly. Business seemed to pick up a lot around 5, go figure. Would recommend this place if you are in the area.
