Finding a nice pub close by to a London main line station is not easy. Mabel's Tavern is just a few minutes walk from both King's Cross and St Pancras stations and not much further from Euston Station either. It is definitely a nice pub!...More

It’s a short walk from Euston and Kings Cross stations. The beer is always tasty and the staff make sure everyone gets served in turn. A great place for a beer before a long train journey.

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and

They certainly did last time I was there - Tottenham v Liverpool last season. Probably best to ring them though.

Mabels Tavern is a traditional English pub with a variety of different ales but emphasis is placed on a varied food menu. The ales are highly regarded and have regularly won awards from CAMRA.Mabel's Tavern apparently takes its name from a local woman, Mabel Macinelly who was born in Dublin, Ireland. She married into the family who owned Hamilton House in Mabledon Place and became Mabel Hamilton.Not much information is known about Mabel except that she owned a cat called Felix and she died in the 1970s. Since her death she has been known to revisit the pub and on one occasion she called the landlady's name repeatedly in the early hours of the morning. She has also been known to operate the dumb waiter that used to stand in the pub - this is a little eerie as the dumb waiter was ripped out of the pub several years ago. The occupants have heard it in operation in the early hours of the morning but when they investigated there was nothing to be seen.It has also been said that Mabel had a grandaughter who has recently visited the Tavern when researching her family. If you know anything about Mabel and her life in Dublin or London we would be fascinated to hear from you.
