The Euston Flyer, Euston Road, NW1

When we walked into this pub a member of staff dropped a big tray of glasses that he’d just taken out of the dishwasher, creating an unholy racket that was so enormous that the many drunk lads in the pub were almost reticent to begin the inevitable ironic ‘whey’ noise at first. Like they were so taken aback by the scale of the glass catastrophe they weren’t sure if they should wait a while before laughing about it.

Maybe the glass incident swayed us, but we enjoyed this pub. It’s not entirely dissimilar to the nearby Euston Rocket, but seemed to have a better, more fun atmosphere. They’ve got a decent selection of beer, the food looks good, and they show sports on the big screen. The lagers are reasonably priced (two Veltins cost us £9.70) and they serve four-pint pitchers, if you want to pretend you’re still in university.

Spacious, friendly and a good atmosphere mean this place is well worth a visit if you’re in the area. We can’t guarantee that you’ll get the entertaining sight and sound of 50 glasses turning into 50,000 microscopic shards though, unfortunately.
