The Boot, King's Cross
One of the numerous Irish pubs hiding away in the less than salubrious back streets of King's Cross, The Boot is worth a visit just to marvel at the various items they've decided to nail to the bar - a pair of skis anyone? As you'd expect, the Guinness is top notch and makes up for the total lack of ale (unless you fancy a John Smiths) and standard lager selection. It's a no-nonsense pub of the old school - one big, slightly ramshackle room with a pool table in the corner and a fridge cabinet next to the bar proudly displaying an impressive choice of crisps! If you're peckish, they serve sausage, chips and beans etc at bargain basement prices. We last dropped in on a quiet midweek evening when it felt a bit like a social club; it seemed most people were known to each other and the barman by name, but we were made to feel welcome. Perhaps not one to go out of your way for, but it does the job.

How to find the The Boot pub
Take the St. Pancras exit and head down Euston Road. Cross over as soon as possible and take the Judd Street left turn. Cromer Street is the third left and the pub should be visible on the left when you turn the corner.
