I had dinner here on a work trip as it was the top rated local restaurant on TA. I had the chicken and leek pie and it was really good wholesome pub grub. Very reasonably priced and good friendly service. The IPA I had a pint of was also really good (though didn't catch the name of it, hadn't seen... More

The place had good vibes and good choice of beers . I had a burger which was only OK (probably because of some spices that ruined it a little for me somehow) , nevertheless the whole experience felt very good and pretty cheap.

Headed up to King's Cross and needed a place to eat before heading to Wembley to see Spurs (what a disappointment!). We had done a quick recce the week before and spoken to Keith (from Derry) behind the bar. What a lovely, friendly chap! Anyway, we got there about 5.40 p.m., walked in and went to the bar for a...

Had a very enjoyable lunch yesterday at The Skinners Arms. It was my first visit and I chose the pub based on the other good reviews. I booked a table for lunch and the four of us had a really good meal. We all ordered steak and ale pie and the sticky toffee pudding so I can only vouch for... More

We were let down by another pub in the locality but managed to get a table here. This was the best bad thing to happen to us as the Skinners is a real find - good beer, great food and a welcoming landlord. Highly recommended.

Visited this pub as a possible post walk venue for a group of walkers that I was due to lead along the Regents Canal. This is what I would call a proper pub with good old fashioned service, decent range of beers and good moderately priced food. I requested some information i.e. when were last orders for lunchtime meals etc.,... More

A group of four of us visited the Skinners Arms yesterday evening at 9pm after a long day walking around London. The pub is very well positioned being a short walk from Euston, St Pancreas & Kings Cross train stations so is a good stop to catch a drink or two when arriving or catching a train! The pub had...
