Drink at the Betjeman Arms

The world of station pubs has few highlights, and whilst London Victoria has a decent upstairs Wetherspoons there are few contenders that rival the likes of the one at, say, Huddersfield. However, your author had a perfectly pleasant trip to the Betjeman Arms at St Pancras International on Saturday, and felt it was worth sharing.

Run by Geronimo Inns, the pub would be nothing particularly special were it not for its setting within Sir George Gilbert Scott's original Grade I listed red brick Gothic building, with an 'outside area' beneath the grand arches of the Barlow train shed. It makes a fine spot to sit out and admire the architecture. London station pubs have come a long way.

  1. I look at your site everyday here in Los Angeles, finally a place I've been too! I popped over to St. Pancras while visiting in January to see the renovations of the hotel (beautiful) and the station as well. Sat and had a pint and watched the world go by for a too brief moment, very nice. Keep up the good work, cheers...
