Great cheap little watering hole, with a large selection of booze that won't break the bank.

On the Friday I went, I had to stand outside as the tiny building was packed, but this didn't bother me either. It's a good place to socialise whether with friends or work mates, especially in warmer weather.

Only minor point to make; the toilets upstairs are not recommended. They are tiny and the smell is pretty bad. The only other toilets nearby are located inside Euston station.

What a gem a little back from Euston Station towards the Euston Rd with proper beer, rock on! Watch out for the spice boys though if your from out of town they'll give you a sob story.

.....but the one I had was admittedly very tasty.

This is a very cool pair of bars - the old gatehouse to Euston station I guess - with some very interesting strong ales. You need a well-filled wallet with pints around the £5-£7 mark but I'd rather pay that here than the fiver a pint stuff at some of the gastroboozers that have been thrown together.

This is a straight up and down good beer bar and a cool meeting point.

My husband drinks here with his brother when they both happen to be in London at the same time. Wanting to see what all the fuss was about, we went for a drink here as we had some time to kill between trains recently.

Pros:
+ really interesting building, with inside and outside seating.
+ extensive selection of beers if that's your thing.
+ not as expensive as I expected for London, depending on what you drink (can be very expensive otherwise).

Cons:
- I asked for a glass of white wine, and was given no choice about which type.
- there are no dedicated female toilets. One male toilet, and one mixed gender toilet. It was foul.
- There is a strong smell of urine upstairs.

We initially sat outside, but as the chap next to us started smoking we made our way up the spiral staircase to the upstairs indoors seating area. The room is functional, but really smelt badly of wee.

This sounds awfully stereotypical, but I can see why this place appeals to young men. It sells lots of different types of beers and is probably one of the 'in' places to be seen at. I just don't think I'll be seen there again.

Fantastic selection of beer, some cheaper than others but all within the expected range of £4-£5 for Central London but a few are as low £3.70.

Not sure how often the selection changes but I would recommend the Harpoon IPA and one of the Session IPAs.

Great atmosphere spilling out on to the street, especially in good weather. The only downside is the lack of toilets leading to frequent queues at peak times.

Definitely would recommend and would visit again
