All In London Review

A Craft beer pub housed in the old Euston mail processing lodge...

Review Image
The Euston Tap might just be the most surprising pub in London. Located within a stone’s throw of Euston Station, it resides in a former lodge once used for processing mail and customer inquiries for the trains. Transformed from a disused space, the Euston Tap now has one of the most impressive shells going from which to sell its eclectic range of craft ale.

A blocky, cube of a pub, there isn’t a great deal of space to drink inside, which is fine in summer when the pathway outside doubles as a makeshift garden. We’re not quite sure how they get away with the sheer number of people taking over what is essentially the beginning of the entrance to Euston, but they do. During colder months be prepared to squeeze in. There is a second level of seating but being a commuter’s dream (i.e. not a Wetherspoon on the station concourse) it fills up rapidly after five.

As if the building weren’t enough, the Euston Tap also keeps a vast range of craft beers running through their centralised wall of pumps. From Licher Weizen to Odell IPA, there is a little something to suit all tastes. And naturally, the list of beers on offer is always changing.

The atmosphere inside and out is lively and the mix between beer lovers and after-workers keeps the clientele interesting – there is nothing not to like here. A lovely pub in a highly original setting, the Euston Tap is a pleasure.

Who fancies a pint of Willie's Old Groyne?

With a façade fitting of what lurks on the shelves of the fridges and in the cellar below, The Euston Tap is a fine pub. There are eight rotating cask ales, 20 keg beers and over 100 bottled beers. Forget about the wacky and disregard affiliated breweries, The Euston Tap is simply about delivering the best in craft to London. Try: Rogue Dead Guy Ale.

Who can resist after work drinkies?

One for brew connoisseurs: this independent pub opposite Euston station is devoted to craft beers, so you won’t find big name brands here. Instead there are over 150 bottled beers and plenty of offbeat draft choices, plus they also have a dedicated cider bar called the Cider Tap.

They say who, they say when, they say how much...

The choices around train stationstend to be limited to the usual traveller’s options i.e. Café Rouge andNando’s, but here there’s the Euston Tap, an independently owned pub in a boxy building that used to be a mail processing lodge. Their beers frequently change, but as a rule you’ll find handpicked beers from small breweries rather than mass-produced ones.
