Pub SignMan left this review about The Jackalope

A revisit to this place – now run by the people behind the ‘Tap’ pubs (Euston Tap, York Tap etc…) although more in line with their non-station venues such as the Resting Hare – found things, on first glance at least, looking much as they did when Sam Smith’s owned the pub. The first notable difference is, of course, at the bar, where the Sam Smith’s brews have been replaced in favour of four handpulls which offered Five Points XPA (£4.10), ELB Pale Ale, Redemption Rock The Kazbek and Adnams Southwold Bitter, with the XPA being in fine condition. The dark wood panelling is still the predominant feature, but this has been infiltrated by some ‘Jackalope’ themed wallpaper, which cheapens the effect somewhat. Meanwhile, the seating has been modernised and there’s a room to the rear left, behind the bar, which I don’t recall being open previously. Pop music plays in the background and the lack of soft furnishing has left the place loud and echoey when there’s a decent sized crowd in. Overall, I thought the pub had made some gains in terms of the diversified beer selection and additional seating area but taken a step back when it came to the décor and acoustics. Still a good bet for this part of town though.

Hidden away down a quiet mews close to Regents Park tube station, this is an attractive Grade II listed Sam Smith’s pub. The interior is very smart and clean with plenty of dark wood, a nice carpet and some comfortable banquettes and leather upholstered low stools. The overall effect is of an upmarket traditional pub and judging by the posh clientele and lack of modern day distractions such as TV screens and games machines, that is exactly what this pub is. The front windows have nice etched designs bearing the pub’s name and although the main room is now mostly opened out into one area, the positioning of the previous partitioning is still fairly apparent. The bar, with its small curved counter, is over to the left hand side where a few display cabinets display various artefacts, but for me, the right hand side of the room is the more pleasant space to enjoy a pint. There is a nice fireplace on the far wall and there are a number of old pictures of sportsmen hung above the banquettes. A few high shelves display various bottles and jugs, but overall the place feels very simple and uncluttered. There is one separate room to the rear right with lots of dark panelling and furnishings including some very smart looking banquettes that run around the entire room.
As a Sam Smith’s house there are no surprises at the bar, with their normal range of keg products on offer. Thankfully the Old Brewery Bitter is served on hand pump and my pint set me back £2.90 – a price rise of 96p since Malden Man’s visit just over two years ago, but still a competitive price in this part of London.
I never feel all that comfortable in this sort of posh mews pub for some reason, but I thought that the Dover Castle was a friendly enough place. It’s certainly worth a look for the warm traditional interior and a comparatively cheap pint of beer.

Tucked away on a quiet mews the pub is part is the group that includes the Euston tap. Old style multi roomed interior serving 3 real ales and 11 keg taps. Well worth seeking out if in the area.

First time to visit this one in its new guise and new name since the former Sam Smiths days and was pleased to find the wonderful dark wood heritage interior largely unchanged and I still found it a good pub.
This was one of the SS houses that used to have OBB on pump so clearly three operating Ale pumps with a decent Adnams Mosaic, 5 Points Best and one other I didn’t note provides more choice that those days. But as mentioned below there is more of a focus on Keg craft here and the nine taps had a decent range of styles and the Siren Porter I also tried was very good.
There is a Thai kitchen in the downstairs room with its own tables, but you can order down there and they will bring it up to the upstairs pub section.
I do like London mews pubs and it was good to find this classic pub still in operation.
