Description

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.

The Star of Kings - London Pub Review

Hailing from north London, I’ve grown up considering King’s Cross as a bit of a no-go area. If I’m not getting stuck behind helplessly lost tourists I’m being pushed, shoved and trampled on by city workers. But, the recent...

Everything was excellent except that fries and nachos for the table took longer to arrive than burgers ordered later. Staff were very nice and apologetic about the wait time which made up for this though. Visited The Star of Kings on 2018-02-20

We had an absolutely brilliant afternoon at The Star of Kings! Literally from the moment we stepped into the pub, laden with small children and prams and bags, John was incredibly helpful and we felt like the function room was an extension of our home for the day. Light and spacious, lots of seating space and a really good roast lunch! Visited The Star of Kings on 2018-02-18

The bar staff were amazing, really friendly - however, 2 of my guests had to leave however as the kitchen was closed early as they couldn't keep up with orders, which was really disappointing.It took over 1/2 an hour early in the evening to get 4 portions of fries for the table.

Reply from The Star of Kings

Hi Sorry to hear you had to wait for food and that we were unable to cater for your friends. We are very busy at this time of year and unfortunately sometimes we can't keep up with the demand for the food. We do try to keep everyone informed when the is a wait for food and unoftuntely sometimes have to stop taking orders that we would be unable to make. If you would like to come back in January we would love to make it up to you.

Great bar, great atmosphere. I booked an area and it was all laid out ready for us, easy to find with no fuss. Only downside was that the music was loud so it was difficult to chat and hear people. I get that loud beats adds to the Friday night atmosphere, but there was no dance floor and so it was mainly a space for chilling and chatting so loud music was kind of out of place and unhelpful!

I hired the basement for a 40th party and the events team couldn't have been more pleasant, professional and helpful with getting everything in place, and gracefully answering my annoying questions! We had dedicated bar staff who were a lovely presence throughout the evening, and all drinks and food ordered were sorted without any fuss, and were delicious. The basement is a great space for an event and even if you have less than capacity as I did, it adapts to fit - with plenty of room for dancing. It's also a very affordable option if like me you can't afford crazy amounts of money to hire a space, or don't want to be worrying about a minimum spend all night. Thanks chaps!

We weren't informed that kitchen would be closed, so we didn't manage to get any food for the night.

We held a charity quiz at The Star of Kings and from first contact to turning up on the night communication was excellent and professional. The staff were friendly and the room was perfect for our event plus having a dedicated bar area meant there were few interruptions to proceedings. Everyone attending had a great time and the food and drink were really good - those sweet potato fries!!! Our only complaint was that the sound system wasn't very good and noise spill from the adjacent bar meant those closest to it could not hear very well. Otherwise its fabulous place to hire a room and I would totally recommend. Visited The Star of Kings on 2017-06-28

We used the venue for my wife's 48th birthday party and couldn't have asked for a better venue. Everything from the size of the room to the quality of the music system was perfect. The staff were extremely polite and helpful and of course the central location of the venue meant that our guest were able to travel to and from the event hassle free. By the way, the food that we ordered was also spot on. Great night. Dennis Roberts Visited The Star of Kings on 2017-06-17

I am a veteran Rockaoke night singer! Great as always. Looking forward to next month already! If you never had a go at this yet, you really must! The band are a real friendly bunch. As the event is regular feature, the people that frequently come to these nights like myself are very enthusiastic and are simply the best! Everyone is willing you to "nail" your song and give you a massive cheer when you finish your number. It's Karaoke for the Big boys and Girls. Newbies are really made to feel welcome too. The atmosphere on some nights is absolutely electric! Instead of just being a bystander here, you have the chance to become part of the night's entertainment! Visited The Star of Kings on 2017-04-28

Food was slow (over 1 hour) but was decent once we got it. Main issue was the staff who were rude and uncaring (e.g. swearing loudly at the fact that we were sitting upstairs presumably because the food has to be carried further, or being told to be patient when politely asking where the food was after 45 mins of waiting). A bad experience overall. Visited The Star of Kings on 2017-01-16

As before, very well organised. No problems at all. Everything went smoothly. My only slightly negative comment is, that at times there was an awful lot of clanging and banging in the background; so much so that at times, we had to wait until it was finished before we continued talking. This was the same on Saturday night. It sounded like the kitchen was behind the wall and that someone /or some people were being particularly heavy handed with cutlery, plates, pots and pans...? However, we injected humour into it any time it happened. I thought it would be helpful to point it out, as others may not find it quite so amusing. Marjorie Visited The Star of Kings on 2017-01-09

Chris was very welcoming. He and the other two members of staff I have dealt with have all been very efficient and friendly. The tables and correct amount of chairs were all set-out as discussed.

It took ages to get our initial drinks as the server couldn't remember our order and had to keep coming back to ask us to repeat it (we ordered three soft drinks). We'd reserved a table for dinner, but people were sitting at it - we politely told them we'd arrived but they refused to move as our reservation was for 6.30 and it was only 6.20 - fair enough, but they were a bit rude (we hadn't noticed the time). Only two bar staff were working, which meant waiting a while to get served throughout the evening as there were quite big groups and orders, but the food came really quickly, and was very tasty.

We had a lovely time. The food and drink was very good and the staff were great. We had a large group including some noisy children and the staff made us all feel at home. Thank you Star of Kings! Visited The Star of Kings on 2016-12-04

Rockaoke is AMAZING! The Start of Kings venue was perfect for this. The bar service was friendly and very good. The booking service and confirmation email was excellent. And, when I needed to change my table booking time from 7pm to 6pm, on the day of the event, the staff member I spoke to was very accommodating and helpful. The only thing I though was odd was that the kitchen was closed for 30 minutes, 6:30pm to 7:00pm, during dinner time. Visited The Star of Kings on 2016-11-25

Glad to hear you enjoyed Rockaoke. We love having them here. In fact so much we make them do NYE here. Sorry to hear you had problems ordering your food. Sometimes we we take big orders we have to close the kitchen for a little while so they don't get too backed up. Cheers

We held a brilliant quiz night at the Star of Kings. helpful staff, enough room, good food and reasonably priced beer. What more can one say about a good pub quiz. The players said the quiz was good too but I couldn't possibly comment as I was the Quiz master! All in all, a really good night out! Visited The Star of Kings on 2016-11-23

We enjoyed the evening - there was however a mix up with our food, two of us had cold food, two of us had to wait so long the others had finished eating by the time the food arrived... The pub quiz was great and the environment perfect... Visited The Star of Kings on 2016-11-15

A nice venue once inside. Food orders were on hold for a coupe of hours dealing with a function upstairs. The burgers where OK if a bit salty, joined by a few cold fries on the plate. Great beer (N1) served. We went on a Tuesday night when the quiz was on which was good fun, Visited The Star of Kings on 2016-11-08

Burgers were decent, sides were average. 15 minute wait for food after the first two meals were brought out to the rest of the order, despite ordering in sequence of each other. Had to ask where the food was, sides came out cold. Visited The Star of Kings on 2016-10-27

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!

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! Visited The Star of Kings on 2016-09-22

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. Visited The Star of Kings on 2016-05-14

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!

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!

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. Visited The Star of Kings on 2015-10-10

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

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

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!

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.
