About the Pub

Named after the esteemed poet who led the fight to prevent the station's destruction, do not be deceived by the outside of this pub on the upper floor to the right within St Pancras Station (from Euston Road), it is quite a labyrinth. Drinking on the outside terrace you can admire the enormous statue of the kissing couple and watch the Eurostar trains come and go underneath the amazing glass roof that epitomises St Pancras and has been beautifully restored by the redevelopments.

Walk into the bar and you can see two of the original pillars (one partially covered) now painted in a bold red colour. This was following a brief closure in Spring 2018, which has resulted in a darker brown stained interior with green tiling and lots of framed posters of the railway age. This is the second refurbishment since opening, as in 2014 the open-plan kitchen was moved and the bar put in its current place which, being much longer, allowed 6 handpumps to be fitted.

To the back is a pleasant bar area with several mirrors. Walk through to the left and there is another area which almost feels like a meeting room with its large central table. Walk through again and the more formal eating area here has a nice feel, almost of a Victorian Eating Room. Keep going and you'll get to the toilets.

The food menu could be described as British Gastro, with breakfasts from 8.30am, check website for fullofferings. The house beer Betjeman Ale is re-badged Sharp's Cornish Coaster. Guest beers after latest re-opening were from Sambrook's and Truman's at £5 a pint.
