The Bree Louise, London

I only recently visited the Bree Louise for the first time whilst I was staying in a hotel near Euston Station. I’ve been visiting London regularly for over 10 years but had never come across the pub. Boy had I been missing out.

Situated a stone’s throw from Euston Station and a short walk from King’s Cross St Pancras, the pub is a free house that holds a perpetual beer festival. At any one time there may be over a dozen beers and numerous ciders on offer.

The pub has many beers from breweries in the area (e.g. Sambrooks and Dark Star) as well as beers from further afield including Wales and Cumbria in north England. They serve some of the beers (around half a dozen) on handpumps with the rest (up to 11 I think) on gravity.

Breweries featured there when I visited a couple of weeks ago were Brains, Purple Moose, Dark Star, Sambrooks, Loddon, Brakspear, O’Hanlons, Batemans, Marstons, Jennings, FFF, and Freedom (Organic Lager). They also had 6 ciders from Westons and Biddenden Bushels Cider.

The pub itself is relatively small and due to the drink selection gets very busy in the evening, especially at weekends. They serve traditional pub food in particular home-made pies which are apparently really good.

And if the pub couldn’t get any better, CAMRA members get discount on food and 50p off a pint which means that most beers are around the £2.50/£2.60 a pint mark which is excellent for central London.
