Union Tavern

52 Lloyd Baker Street
Kings Cross
WC1X 9AA

Although this pub is not a listed building, it has an historic pub interior of some regional importance and the description is as follows: “Victorian/Edwardian pub still retaining much of its original fittings including a large former publican's office. The inner lobby has a ‘Union Tavern’ mosaic floor. Two floor to ceiling partitions remain with a number of decorative glass panels including some deep cut mirrored panels. The original island bar counter remains and the back fitting (painted brown) has many engraved mirrors. A Victorian water tap remains on the counter, sadly, lacking its handle. Now very much a gastro-pub the left hand side is for dining and has a food counter at the rear. Some original windows and door panels are now in frames on the wall. Good Lincrusta ceiling on right hand side.”

The Union Tavern featured on the From Battle Bridge to Mount Pleasant: Evening Crawl of Pentonville, Kings Cross and Clerkenwell in December 2016.
