Blackthorn _ left this review about Euston Tap

A quite unusual pub housed in a tall vertical building that was perhaps some sort of gate house in a former life, it’s one of a pair either side of the approach road to the station, although the other one to the east was not open on our Saturday lunchtime visit. There is a small amount of outside seating on a terrace and the surrounding pavement.

Internally it’s fairly minimalist, and could perhaps qualify as a micropub were it not for the music that were playing. The bar counter takes up a good percentage of the available floor space, and together with refrigeration units for bottles, this covers the whole of the back wall. The flooring was some sort of quarry style tiles, although oblong in shape rather than the more usual square. Glazed green tiling was on the lower part of the walls, as well as a ledge for resting your pint on. Seating was fairly limited, consisting of stools around the perimeter and at the bar counter. A rather steep spiral staircase in the corner led upstairs, although we did not investigate this. Other than that, there was little of any note other than a chart on the wall showing different styles of beer.

Beers on tap were Moor So’Hop, Adnams Bitter, Redemption Trinity, Bad Seed Shortcut, Beartown Sha-Man, Five Points Pale and Five Points Best. Another dozen or more craft ale options were available on keg, dispensed from taps mounted to a copper plate behind the bar counter. The solitary cider was Adnams Wild Wave which is a new one on me, but went down rather well. It’s certainly an unusual location for a pub and there was a decent beer selection, but I didn’t really warm to the pub style and it’s not anywhere that I would rush back to.

An odd place for a pub but it works. Great selection of cask, keg and bottled beers which are not that expensive. I have been looking forward to visiting this one and I am glad I did.
I didn't attempt the spiral staircase!

ORIGINAL REVIEW August 2011.
My first visit to this very fine addition to the London drinking scene.I visited on a Friday after work fully expecting a heaving bar,but pleased that although busy it was never rammed.There is a lot of transient custom with folk popping in for a quick one on their travels,and customers spill outside to drink on the terrace or on the pavement with a fine view of buses manoeuvering .On my visit the blackboard to the right of the bar listed 8 cask ales with an admirable range of strengths and styles from various well respected microbreweries while the board to the left listed 12 kegged beers and lagers ,many at high ABV priced by the half.The fridges supply interesting bottled beers.I thought the ale prices very reasonable for the location.
If you have a head for heights it is worth ascending the tight spiral staircase to see if there is a seat available because the ground floor is primarily for vertical drinking.The loos are upstairs as well which needs to be factored in by anyone with mobility issues.
The clientele is not dominated by beer tickers,the kegged beers were more in demand than cask and a younger generation of drinkers were in the majority on my stay.As others have mentioned the less experienced staff have not quite mastered the skill of serving customers in the order that they have been waiting at the bar,but thankfully the punters are more versed in bar etiquette and normally point out who should be served next.
I will definately use this pub again,there is always the chance of being presented with an outstanding ale to get your teeth into.

UPDATE

Over 2016 I have used The Euston Tap on a number of occassions and feel compelled to increase the score here to 10,simply for the outstanding real ale selection in absolute peak condition from the likes of Marble,Siren Craft,Arbor,Cloudwater and Hopcraft.The bogs are still a mess,it can get crowded immediately afterwork on a friday,but that's a price worth paying if you are hunting for the very best that real ale can offer.And the prices are more than reasonable for Central London.Can't wait for the conversion of the Cider Tap opposite to another cask ale emporium which will also allow a spruce up to this bar in time .A "Must Visit" when in the capital.
