About the Pub

Opened in 1999 and located on the Upper Mezzanine above The Lawn (the second floor level of the mainly eating and drinking complex) at the front (Praed Street side) of the station and reached via two sets of escalators, stairs or a lift. The traditional pub interior features a long bar, mirrors, and old photographs of the station, with train information screens and two TVs for sports; there are cafe-style seats outside. The raised area up stairs to the left of the entrance is a designated dining area and the raised areas can also be hired for events. The pub does not get too crowded, even in the rush hour. Note that the bar may close early if there are football crowds passing through, and also note that before 10am the licence states that alcohol can be served only with a meal. The pub was the local CAMRA branch's Pub of the Year in 2015.
