Skinners Arms, King's Cross
The streets just south of the Euston Road are home to a number of solid, straightforward pubs, a fair example of which is the Skinners Arms. With its plush carpet, striped wallpaper and a surprisingly high ceiling, here's a traditional boozer which offers a decent spot to while away a couple of hours. Its regulars are drawn from the nearby offices, but expect local residents and even curious tourists popping into the sample the fare on offer. Whilst it's not a stone cold classic, the Skinners is an unpretentious pub that does a fair job in keeping its regulars - and first time visitors - happy. Those whom Greene King's beers leave cold will also find one or two guest beers on tap, and if hunger calls, the sizeable portions of standard pub grub should satisfy.

This has been the best pub in London that I have found so far. Great people, great beer, great prices, great location... It is a worker's pub and not so much of a tourist pub. They have different ales every time you go in there. Craig and Margaret, the owners, could not be more attentive and kind. The food prices are surprisingly good and the food is awesome! The pub is very picturesque and inviting. It is one block away from St. Pancras Station. So, walk one block past O'Neill's pub on the corner of Euston road and enjoy the Skinners Arms.

The previous comment is a bit harsh but I do know where that person is coming from. The moody, sullen Irishman that was running the place has gone now and what a change the new Landlord has made. Gone is the frozen food on the vintage Menu. In is a new modern Menu with fresh Food, cooked to order. And what a choice of Guest Ales! No Pump has the same Ale on twice which means exceptional variety. And there is now a huge change in the other types of Drinks on offer, especially for females. I no longer have to go to Mabels Tavern for a change, The Skinners Arms has changed for the better, go and see for yourself.
