Three to try at…Euston Tap

Sup on a cold one a stone’s throw from the big interchange – with great people-watching guaranteed

The outside of Euston Tap


oused in an old station building, the Euston Tap is arguably the area’s most famous bar, and this awesome daddy of craft beer joints, open for nearly a decade, routinely chalks up around 20 draft beers on keg and another half dozen on cask.

Our tip? Get there before 6pm if you want to nab a stool – best spot is by the window on the left as you enter, with lively people-watching over Euston Square Gardens and the busy thoroughfare beyond.

The outside terrace is surprisingly spacious too, with an enclosed, covered area as well as high stools and tables dotted about the pavement. Oh, and the crowd is more Londoner than daytripper, so it feels like a neighbourhood bar rather than station pub.

Three to try

Fourpure Juice Box
Pure tropical flavours, at 5.9% this is a deceptively powerful number which is charged by the half pint But as a citrus IPA, it ticks all our boxes: fresh orange zest, aromatic hops, a note of mango and a touch of bitterness. Hoppy, zesty, refreshing.

Pressure Drop Pale Fire
This American pale, at 4.8%, is lighter than the Juice Box: some juicy fruit aromas match a note of pine and balanced bitterness. It’s awfully easy to get through a couple of pints, in fact.

Lagunitas IPA
If you’re bamboozled by the sheer range of beers chalked up and enter panic mode, simply ask for this grandpa-joe of US craft beer. Don’t be fooled though, it packs a punch at 6.2%; but it’s also a safe bet – a well-rounded, highly drinkable IPA, with notes of barley and hoppiness.

Euston Tap is open daily 12-11pm at 190 Euston Rd NW1, more info here. Want to go on a pub crawl round Euston? Read our guide here.
