Just around the corner from Kings Cross station, this is a spacious, open-plan Young’s pub with bare floorboards and tatty half panelled walls. The room sees the servery run along the rear wall, where some nicer panelling can be found and the bar has a pleasant counter offset by a pretty ugly metal framed bar back. A couple of structural pillars with drinking shelves around them stand opposite the bar and then beyond that there are rows of tables and chairs with fill much of the rest of the room. Large windows down two sides offer dull views of the large brick wall that makes up the side of the station, but allow plenty of light in, which seems to filter its way through to all corners of the room. Much of the ceiling is decorated with distressed, old fashioned tiles and the room has been painted in boring gastro colours, despite the pub still being very much wet-led from what I could see. Decor includes a great deal of horse racing themed items, for reasons that were never entirely clear to me, plus a few bits of dubious local interest including a nice ‘Kings Cross for Scotland’ railway poster and one of those daft ‘Platform 9 ¾’ signs. Loud music was playing on my midweek evening visit, but this was very much irrelevant given the even louder clientele whose voices were ably amplified by the echoey interior.
Just a paltry two beer line-up on the bar – the inevitable Youngs Ordinary and the expensive guest ale, which on this occasion was Purity Mad Goose at a maddening £5.00 a pint. One real cider was also available on handpull and my pint of the Mad Goose was okay but failed to justify the price.
There was nothing inherently wrong with this place, but there were definitely areas for improvement – the interior seems to be long overdue a good tidy up, modernisation needs rethinking and some soft furnishings wouldn’t go amiss – but ultimately it is the excessive prices for average beers that will prevent repeat visits.

Apparently recently made over, signage outside urges visitors to see how "sexy" the pub is. Twaddle, a slightly L-shaped space, bar on the back wall, open to view kitchen in one corner. Stairs lead up to an unvisited roof terrace, in the bar there are distressed blue boarded walls and columns, an exposed brick feature wall and plenty of horse racing related decor including some decent paintings. The ceiling is panelled and of some vintage. A large vase of flowers marked the end of the bar and tea light candles in glass bowls flickered on the tables.
I didn't see the menu or prices as it was early before lunch but I doubt it is cheap, the beer certainly isn't. A pint of Purity Mad Goose was £4.80, they also had Young's Bitter and the dreaded Doom Bar. Plastic and pretentious.

One of the Kings Cross type pubs that doesn't have to try too hard to attract customers.Busy.Doom ,Mad goose and Youngs beers.
