Will Larter left this review about The Scottish Stores

I came here several times in 2015/16/17 but always when with company or towards the end of a crawl, when I struggle to remember enough to write a review; I do remember on my last visit getting into a fairly drunken conversation at the bar as to why I was wearing a Luton Town scarf and hat but catching a train to Sheffield. As has been mentioned, the beer then was cheap and plentiful, and you would struggle to find elbow room at the bar or a seat at a table. There are now bar hangers again, so the first problem remains to some extent, but there was plenty of room once I had been served - in fact I had the whole of the room on the right to myself at 8pm. There's plenty of room for more beers on the bar, too - just two beers on whereas four would have been more usual five years ago. I remember getting Camra discount here before, bringing the price per pint below £4 as Quinno noted in his review on 2016, but I paid £2.70 for a half on this occasion. (Not a complaint, just an observation. And I never ask for a discount these days anyway.) My Riverbed Red from New River brewery was in very good condition. This is one of a number of decent pubs close to Kings Cross station (King Charles I, The Fellow and McGlynns would be others) that are well worth a visit either before catching a train or after stepping off one.

What a transformation! Last time I was in here it was a seedy strip bar. Not a place for the faint hearted!
It is now a decent pub well described below with excellent service. I had a cracking pint of Hammerton N7 (in fact I had 2 it was that good!)
Pick of the pubs near Kings Cross for me.

In Kings Cross again this evening with some time to kill and decided to look this one up again.
Sadly my visit demonstrated the effect on cask offerings in London Town caused by Covid. Only one of the four hand pumps in operation and buy the printed beer and cider list that was on every table that seems a fairly permanent thing at the moment. Fortunately it was quite a good Hammerton N1 Pale Ale ( but then it doesn’t have far to travel) which saved me from having to choose one of the many UK or foreign craft beer options available. Still well worth visiting for the wooden interior but unfortunately currently not the good ale Emporium it was before the pandemic struck
