|This pub goes from strength to strength. Devastated to miss the Basqueland tap takeover tonight, but enjoyed my local Hammerton anyway before my train. With the King Charles and the Queen's Head Kings Cross is becoming a destination pub area.|

|Went here for the first time after the Lords test last week on the way back to the station and having time to kill.|
Wondered why I hadn't seen it before but after chatting to the barman I understood it had undergone a fundamental change which involved more than just a name change!
Was impressed with the range of beers available and with the decor as well.
Sadly we only had time for the one pint but I will add this pub to the list of those handy for the railway station!

|Now returned to the original name, the Scottish Stores. No longer a strippers' pub with blanked out windows and weirdos hanging around the entrance. There are 7 real ales and 6 on keg; also Weston's Old Rosie.|
A very good pint from friendly and efficient staff, but at a price: £4.40. There's a very nice interior which is Grade II listed, this is also on CAMRA's London Regional inventory of pubs with interiors of special historic interest; a great interior with wood panelling, inlaid with coloured painted panels of some sort; there's some some etched glass too.
Certainly worth a trip and now definitely the best real ale pub in King's Cross.

|Went in last night; 8:55pm one of the strippers, around 5 5" asked me for a pound as I waited at the main bar to get served...., to go round to the stage area to the right to see her performance.....she said....'seeeeee the show' in a Spain or Eastern accent. I put a pound in her glass, moved round to the stage area to see the show. The same girl approached me,' A pound pleeeeas'|
'I just gave you one , 25 seconds ago!' I said. No you didn't, wasn't me she said, giving a very wide grin.....a pound please?
I left, disgusted at the scam, which is good, because customers do no get a receipt.... I had no proof she was lying and was so would have been asked to leave if I did not give her another £1

|I'm the sad bugger who went in to look at the interior as this is listed in CAMRA's Inventory of Classic London pubs (even though it doesn't sell real ales). You can see what it must have looked like years agao even though it is dark and pretty dingy inside. How boring is that - but yes I did chip in my quid and watch a pleasant little girl take her clothes off!! |
