Quick visit here. Good choice of drinks, a 'local' location away from close proximity to tube stations and tourist hubs, though on the main road into King's Cross. Would be interesting to see what the food was like, regarding the 'gastropub' label. The ambience/decor did...More

Just go and I promise you, you will want to keep going back. The Sunday roasts are out of this world. The sheer size of the Yorkshire pudding fills up the hungriest of mouths & the Meat is fantastic. I had the chicken which is...More

leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated

tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
