The Parcel Yard

Just past Platform 9 ¾ at the new and much-improved King’s Cross you’ll find The Parcel Yard, which is already the best pub in a London station despite having been open for about two minutes. It is light and airy and clean and welcoming – all the things, indeed, that station pubs so rarely are. Fuller’s, the Grand Old Duke of London brewing, own this place and while there are plenty who would insist they don’t belong in the ranks of craft brewers, much of their beer is certainly good enough. The Parcel Yard (housed, as the name suggests, in a restored parcel office) has for sale all of Fullers’ sometimes magnificent Vintage Ales plus an interesting crop of guest cask options.
