The first thing that stood out to me upon entering this pub was just how remarkably clean it was. It had the layout and furniture of and old school boozer, but none of the grubiness. The service was so good that I can't think of a way it could be improved upon and this is probably what drives the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The only fault that I found with the pub was that the Guinness Cold was a bit naff - curious for an Irish place. Given the high standards on every other aspect of the pub I'm going to assume this was a rare occurance.

I will make a point of returning to this excellent pub.

Friendly traditional Irish local in a quiet back street. Pleasant to sit or stand outside in good weather. Usually 3 real ales on. It is hidden away but popular with locals and commuters. The best pub in this area. I discovered this pub many years ago and have been coming back ever since.

Some people reckon that this is the best pub in Kings Cross
that's not saying much

On a summer's evening sitting outside you could be in Parisian back street.

Well perhaps not.....

On my recent UK visit I stayed briefly in the King's Cross area & discovered some new (for me) pubs near the hotel. I enjoyed McGlynn's because it seemed that most customers were locals enjoying punting, pints & banter, and the odd tourist (me) was made most welcome. Pride was 3.80, which was pretty reasonable.

An excellent, traditional boozer attracting a good bunch of regulars which makes for a good atmosphere. Since its on a backstreet you avoid most of the passing Kings Cross trade but quite a few more choosy commuters do make up the numbers.
Landlord was a friendly old fella as well.
