A sports bar right next to one of Britain's busiest railway stations. A recipe for an insanely packed and miserable experience. Not quite. While not the prettiest bar in London it had a great vibe with 3 separate pool tables, one table tennis table and a punch bag machine (warning, this is insanely addictive and I lost a lot of money on this thing). Be aware that you'll almost definitely need to reserve in advance for tables. On top of this, more TV screens than you'd ever need showing the main sporting events. They also have a great deal going on for cocktails - two for one from 2 - 8pm. A few things let it down for me. The size of the main bar is a bit small and they need more serving staff (due to the length of time it takes to make cocktails). The fact that you need to book in advance for tables is annoying. Thirdly, the staff are quite lax about kicking people off of tables once their allocated slot is up. Furthermore, there are no real ales on tap. Overall I had a good time here and would not shy on going back.
Pretty much a complete dive. I went for a mid afternoon football match and it was ok in that it was showing it and served beer, but the whole place smells and is stick. Seems to cater for those who know nowhere else to go

As soon as I entered, there were some top melons pressed against me. Decent start, but it got better from there. Straight into the VIP for a very reasonable dollar, great banter all over the place. VIP was unreal. Wife wasn't too happy but there was a direct taxi from outside to a door in king's cross with a star on it. Expensive night, but well worth the two grand. Been morning glory for the last week. Recommend it to everyone.
Well, it's one of the few places of its kind in the area. Ok for a quick appetizer, but the main course is questionable. The alley outside isn't a place you want to hang around at midnight...leaks are taken.

This is a cool little place where its name really does resemble what the place is like. It's a box room with screens literally everywhere. So no matter if there is a giant in front of you you definitely won't miss out on seeing any of the match. Not expensive, good starting place before you go out out.
Could do with bar upstairs having better seating to watch screens but other than that decent all round
