Every 1st Thursday of the month


London’s King’s Cross has a rich heritage of music and entertainment. Minus the pretensions of the West End, King’s Cross has always been a can’t-fail destination for a good night out and The Star of Kings looks set to continue that legacy, presenting bands and DJs on a packed programme and a massive Funktion-One sound system, as well as providing the atmosphere of a good ol’ fashioned pub.

Dishing up tasty food and delicious drinks, you can chow down next to the open fire in the winter or on the beer terrace in the summer. With a comfy ambiance, classic décor and free wi-fi and coffee refills, it is the ideal spot to catch up with friends, grab a few cheeky bevvies after work and listen to some great live music.

I always make sure to come here at least once a month with a few friends! The staff are always friendly and they make the best burgers around. Great atmosphere and great people! I always make a habit of going back :D Adrian visited The Star of Kings on 08 Oct 2016

Been here quite a few times, booked it for a Christmas work do, various leaving drinks and come here occasionally for lunch. Really good venue with nice and friendly staff, great burgers and the Rum Punch is to die for :-)

I ran a charity comedy night in the basement and it was wonderful. Staff were incredibly helpful and all the acts and the audience had an awesome time. Venue is great, soundproofing is excellent and has a lovely feel to it. The host of my gig liked it so much she booked it for her solo show as well, which was also great! katemcassidy visited The Star of Kings on 22 Jul 2016

A great venue and a great pub in a great location. The staff are amazing and I'll definitely be booking the room again for our little revision group. Top marks! Recommended! Adrian visited The Star of Kings on 20 Aug 2016

Great venue, really good service and the upstairs function room provided everything we needed; It's the new home of our once-monthly event. We host a music industry discussion event, usually with 30+ people. Couldn't have been happier with the place over the past 2 bookings. Thanks Star of Kings! bk_1000 visited The Star of Kings on 22 Sep 2016

Perfect venue for my 50th birthday celebrations! Staff were extremely helpful, efficient and game for a laugh (wore the red wigs I provided for the theme '50 Shades of Ginger'). Good location for all coming from in and out of London - even abroad. Thanks for a great evening. Rosalie visited The Star of Kings on 14 May 2016

Having come here quite a few years and I'm always impressed with how versatile this place is! Been here for meals, after work drinks, rock nights, a cousins 30th birthday (the last two via the function room you can hire downstairs). It's nicely off the busy roads of Kings Cross. Lots of fun. One of the better pubs in the area!

Didn't even hire the function room - held my birthday bash slap bang in the middle of their fantastic Rockaoke night (last Friday of every month) and couldn't have asked for more :-) We'll all be back!

Been to lots of events here - downstairs room held my cousins 30th a few years ago but they do regular rock nights there too. Decent place to meet for lunch too!

I had my 30th birthday party in the upstairs function room last weekend. I was so pleased. The staff were all so friendly and flexible when some of my guests turned up late. I can't recommend highly enough :)

We had our engagement party in the upstairs function room and it was great. All the staff were very accommodating and helpful and the room itself was perfect. Thanks to the Star of Kings! curiousal visited The Star of Kings on 16 Jan 2016

What a great venue! Excellent customer service from the moment I went to see it. It hired a really cool basement downstairs. It is a bit rough around the edges but nothing the decorations could not cover. We had loud music and covered the room in balloons and banners which the venue were cool with! They were relaxed but efficient and really friendly! They tailored things to suit us including drinks packages and would recommend! Well done Star of Kings! My sister had an amazing hen :) daniellehaxby121 visited The Star of Kings on 10 Oct 2015

The Star of Kings was a great venue to host my 30th Birthday Party at. I was quite specific with what I wanted and the team where very accommodating. In particular Lincoln was helpful when sorting out the technical side of the evening. Everyone had a great time. The food one was great too. I would definitely recommend this venue if you want a space to hire. laralara visited The Star of Kings on 10 Oct 2015

Fantastic venue with really welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff - felt really well looked after and will definitely be returning! The food here is also fantastic, definitely try the 'Babe Fries' - skinny chips with cheese, jalapenos and bacon. Yum!

Great venue. We went to the Star of Kings for the scotch egg burger and was not disappointed. Very friendly staff and a good range of drinks We'll certainly be visiting again.

Why I probably wouldn't recommend The S.O.K I was holding a seminar and booked their upstairs function room. Whilst the room itself is more than adequate (they could easily seat 25-30 and have a large tv monitor). It was the lack of professionalism that I have a problem with. I made the original booking and was handled very professionally by the Manager Lincoln and who emailed the booking form and event sent me a reminder prior to my event confirming that it was booked for 10am the following morning. I'm sure you can imagine how angry I was when I turned up at 9am the next morning to find a locked building, in fact someone turned up at 9.55 am to open up. After complaining to this person who offered no apology and clearly wasn't in charge but helped me set out the chairs he disappeared downstairs. This is about the time when things went from bad to worse.The function room is located above the pub and access is gained by a separate entrance. As you enter there is an interconnecting door that leads to the pub before going upstairs. In attempting to find the toilet I went back downstairs only to find the connecting door and main door locked. So I went back upstairs to find what I hoped would be another toilet. After trying several doors I walked up another flight of stairs it was only when I wandered passed someone in bed that I realised I was in the residents quarters. I apologised and explained the situation and used the toilet before returning to the function room. Several minutes later she came downstairs in a somewhat dishevelled state and identified herself as a manager but it wasn't her shift. When I explained the situation and my embarrassment she told me to "keep my hair on and stop stressing" she also requested that I do not come up to her living area despite my earlier explanation. In summary I can say that what might have otherwise been a good day was let down by the bad attitude of the staff and was exacerbated by the fact that the person in question was herself a manager

oh what a great night for my 50th birthday party. Great venue, superb, friendly, efficient bar staff. Great food too, love those 'sliders'. Fantastic unpretentious pub in an excellent location - can highly recommend.

I organised a pub quiz in the function room and it was fantastic! The pub is in a great location and the staff were very helpful. I could play my own music, and they had a TV that we could use for a presentation. Excellent menu as well. Great night!

The staff were really helpful & very accommodating. The pub has a great character & it is in an excellent location. A great night was had by all! Thank you! We will definitely come back.

Booked upstairs room for our Engagement Do. Staff were friendly and organised from the off. No charge just deposit in case we didn't show. Room was very clean and tidy for us, including tea light candles 'for ambiance'. We had our own music using iphone/ipod, which they turned up on our request as the night progressed. Lovely staff,who weren't phased by a few of our party being a bit raucous at kicking out time - they took it all in good humour. Like a lot - especially when other places charge silly amounts for room hire. Don't go changing, star of Kings x

We had a great work night out last Thursday evening. Lovely pub, good atmosphere, food was delicious! We had a mix up on the timing of the food, and the manager sorted it out in a jiffy. Thank you!

This was the perfect venue for my leaving party. It was easy to find and near public transport. The venue itself was set out just the way I wanted it and the service from the staff was impeccable. Couldn't fault it. Highly recommended.

The Star of Kings was the perfect venue for my night. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and did a lot of furniture-shifting to help me get the room how I wanted it. I also had one or two unusual requests which they were happy to fulfill. I felt very welcome there as did all my guests, and my deposit was returned to me easy peasy at the end of the evening. Highly recommended!

Really great venue, and very helpful and friendly staff. Downstairs room was perfect for our comedy night and got a lovely crowd in. Very very good beers on tap too.

Great Pub, really friendly and we were extremely well looked after by Lincoln All of our party had a really good time. Nice selection of beers also I would recommend highly!

Fab little place! Came here for the Rockaoke night which was immense! Also tried the food (currently provided by KOME) which was absolutely delish! Had us all raving. Only downside was the Prosecco was a little pricey, but I coped without it! ;-)

Reserved us a space for 20 to watch the England game. Places us right near the TVs. Good service for drinks - always room at the bar and food was delicious and prompt. Thanks for having us!

Advertised as a good venue for world cup football - 3 screens over 3 floors. We booked an area for 6 and requested a table close to the screen. When we got there, the entrance to the pub is not that great, half the flooring is missing and covered with a rug. there was only 1 big and 1 small screen, our area was reserved near the small screen, and enough for only 4 people. We were disappointed and went to watch the second half in another venue close by.

I had my birthday here in the private basement and it was great! Our own little club in the heart of London. We brought our own DJ and partied all through the night! Great space to know about
