The Fellow

Pitching itself as ‘an alternative drinking and dining destination in King’s Cross’, this gastropub comprises two imbibing areas, each a standout in this rapidly changing locality.

Offset from the restaurant that takes up most of the ground-floor space, a holding bar has a counter lined with taps of Otter, Peroni and Sharp’s Doom Bar; Pimm’s by the jug (£11.50) is a popular alternative. Upstairs, a pretty walled garden adjoins an evening-only lounge bar with low seating, cocktails and regular DJ sets.

To complement the Mersea Island wild oysters and whole baked Tunworth cheese, the dozen wines by the glass range from an entry-level Cantiga Viura (£2.90/£15.50) to quality Chablis, Sancerre and an unusual Hatziadakis Cuvée 17 from Santorini in the £30 bracket.

The upstairs cocktail list has its own recherché menu featuring Trealy Monmouthshire air-dried ham and Barkham blue cheese.

Nice enough pub, with a fairly tucked away small rooftop terrace - great to go to on sunny days - and good food options. Bit on the pricey side but this is to be expected with its central location. Good ambience all in all and friendly staff.


This is a lovely pub, with a great wine list and menu though it's definitly on the pricier side of things. However, with great seating, friendly staff, ambient lighting and fantastic tunes it's a great spot if you're in the area and looking to meet friends or a date.


Really good food, went on a Tuesday after work and grabbed the last table downstairs, so it probably gets busier later in the week. But the food was tasty, generous portions and served quickly. If, like me, you've hit your early-mid thirties and like a pub with a bit of music that doesn't drown out conversation, and a nice comfy seat, this could be for you.

Was very busy when we went last Thursday so I do recomend booking in advance to secure a table. Food was wonderful (worth the wait!) and service was warm and friendly. I had the Hare Parpadelle (sp?) whice was lovely and rich, with a glass of the house Rioja. Good sized portions too so if you want to save room for dessert maybe skip a starter.
