Pub SignMan left this review about Little Creatures Regent's Canal

This is a large, shiny new brewpub from the Little Creatures Brewery, tucked away behind the new Coal Drops Yard development behind Kings Cross station. You enter through a doorway with red plastic flaps hung in front of it, which made it feel like I was walking into an abattoir or something. Thankfully, this isn’t the case, although the large room you find yourself in does have an industrial look and feel to it. The servery is directly opposite as you enter the room, with a white glazed brick tile counter front with thick wooden top, gleaming serving area and six very large tanks on the bar back, some of which were full of beer ready for dispense. High tables and stools fill the space opposite, under the full height front windows, which let in a lot of light in the day but make way for muted lighting in the evening. To the far right there is a somewhat cosier space with some long, padded benches arranged in front of the open kitchen. Stairs here lead up to a small mezzanine area with some very basic seating options and no customers. Meanwhile, over to the left, you’ll find a raised seating area with backless benches through the centre and nice padded banquettes around the perimeter. A lot of the tables here had been reserved for diners, which forced those just wanting a drink to make do with the standing room opposite the bar. The brewery can be found in a screened off area to the front left, visible through windows and with an image of the brewing process drawn on boards to one side. Pop music played in the background, but this was lost under the loud chatter that echoed through a room pretty much devoid of any soft furnishings.
There was no sign of any cask ale on my visit, but the keg taps had seven Little Creatures beers on alongside a few guests from the likes of Camden. I tried the Little Creatures XPA, for which I was charged £5.90 a pint, which is insane for a 4.9% beer brewed half a dozen paces away. The staff here were prompt but fairly perfunctory and the beer, for what it’s worth, was reasonably tasty, but nothing that you haven’t tasted a great many times before.
I quite liked the look of this bar, as I thought the industrial stylings were a good fit for this heavily redeveloped area, but the overall ambiance left me a bit cold, as did the lack of available seating and the crazy pricing. It’s worth popping in if you’re exploring this interesting part of town, but with prices that would make the West End blush, I can’t see me coming back.

This is my style of brewpub.Big ,light airy high ceilinged with the brewery kit on display.All keg with one beer brewed on site on my visit.Outside seating.Reasonably priced but a big mark up on halfs.If you sit outside you have a view of a fascinating block of flats that have been built into and around a gasholder.Clever.

Ultra-modern brew-pub located just north of the Coal Drops Yard development, with most of the kit sectioned off in one corner but with six large stainless-steel tanks behind the counter. Mix of furniture and semi-industrial decor under a ceiling high enough for a small mezzanine at the far end. Also has a narrow patio along the main frontage. Excellent range of craft keg beers in a wide variety of styles, and I was offered tastings of the Rhubarb Berliner and West Coast IPA before settling on the Bulldog Red IPA (£4.00, schooner).
