Evening visit whilst waiting for a train from nearby St. Pancras. Not as busy as I expected and Fullers/Dark Star beers dominating the beer range on offer. Good service as usual in here. I have not listed all the beers that were on offer.

Mid evening visit. A true warren of a place to explore.

Fuller's - ESB5.50AcceptableSeemed tired to me and proved to be a right chore to drink
Castle Rock - Session IPA 2.0v1.7 Simcoe/Ahtanum/Columbus4.00PoorTaking the letter after O at £5.25pp. Accepted as cloudy but I chewed the cud on its tastelessness which was not the clean tasting hopped beer I had had elsewhere. 2 other customers after me quickly challenged and after debate staff offered replacements (including to me) and took it off sale

Thursday evening and very busy but with a commuter crowd rather than the people with suitcases earlier in the day. I was served immediately which seems to be the norm in here. The list of beers below is done from memory and I have probably missed a few.

Those nice people at Fullers sent me a voucher code for a free pint, I don't know why but I am not complaining. This was just after mid-day and the pub was very busy with a good mix of customers and plenty of suit cases. Good service here as usual.

I decided it was more comfortable to sit in here than in the Eurostar departure lounge, and then nearly missed my train because of very slow-moving security queues.
