Set in the tangle of unpromising streets behind King’s Cross, the Driver is a stylish gastropub with a ‘vertical garden’ and a decked roof terrace. It’s complemented by three more floors of dining and drinking space, above a street-level bar and restaurant of equally interesting design.
Finding a down-to-earth pub in the King’s Cross neighbourhood is harder than you might imagine. Don’t worry; this list delivers all the backstreet boozers you need to have on the radar – from places that champion craft beer from breweries around the world to gastropubs and watering holes with handy rooftop terraces. Cheers.
