A pretty new place in a really cool building righ toutside of Euston Station. the atmosphere is made by the building itself and the area outside the bar which I thought was cool and has tons of potential for improvement. Quality of the beers there is right up there all the casks were in good order and the bottles were all of very high quality. Mostly US and German Bottles, with a few Belgians mixed in but not that many. On Cask there were quite a few high quality British beers and a couple US and German on draft. The prices were very high, I will only get the local cask beers there myself adn I ALWAYS will check the price before asking for the beer. The service was OK but the staff was not very knowledgable and kind of stupid when they got a complaint (not from me) about a £7 ($11) pint of Anchor Steam Ale from a customer who thought that was outragous (import or not IT IS!!) The customers ended up leaving angry and making a bit of a scene (for others to see) and the staff just poured out the beers and went on. I'll go back for special releases and maybe to meet up with a friend but won't make it a regular spot until they get their act together. . . which I hope they do.

Lot's of potential and as they are new, we'll have to see how it works out. I will edit this or re review if/when things change.

Edit: Service seems to have improved with new management and the Tap will hopefully only keep improving. With more and more beer focused pubs opening up in London these days it will have to in order to keep up.

Visited with my wife during our honeymoon in London and Paris.

Tried the following beers:
Summer Wine Stateside (cask)
The Kernel Export India Porter (bottle)
Magic Rock Salty Kiss Gooseberry Gose (can)
Chorlton Citra Brett Pale (sample)
Siren Calypso Berliner Weisse - Calypso (sample)
Pressure Drop Pale Fire (sample)

Bartender was very engaging and extremely generous with samples. We also had a nice chat with one of the patrons. The fact that this place is right outside a subway station is pretty cool. Our overall experience was great, and we would certainly come back. Recommended.

Having an affinity for well-crafted ales and train stations, it is a pleasure to find them together. I learned about Euston when visiting its sister at Waterloo.

The menus are similar since they have the same owner and buyer. They both have a handful of cask conditioned ales and three times that for taps. Although I did notice that Euston has a better bottle selection... of which I bought four.

Given that Euston Station is undergoing a renovation, I have a ready-made reason to stop by again on my next journey to London.

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.
