SquareMeal Review of
The Betjeman Arms
You have to wonder what Sir John Betjeman, who famously saved St Pancras from the wrecking ball, would make of this Geronimo Inns pub named in his honour. It certainly has the seasons covered, from
a warren of refectory rooms for cooler months to a large summer terrace overlooking Euston Road – although inattentive & offhand service can take the edge off things. A popular breakfast
selection delivers everything from eggy bread with maple syrup to sausage sarnies, while the short all-day menu is pure pub grub: prawn cocktail, lamb steak with rosemary potatoes, rainbow trout
with a watercress & potato salad, & suchlike. Beer drinkers should make a beeline for the decent selection of hoppy brews (including the eponymous Betjeman Ale) & there are plenty of
good wines, too.
