Nestled between Liverpool Street Station and Spitalfields Market, The King's Stores is a vibrant hidden gem, with an ever changing selection of craft and cask beers, a carefully chosen wine list, and a fantastic seasonal menu to suit all tastes.

The bustling main bar is the perfect place for after work drinks and we are THE pub for all the biggest sporting action. If you're looking for something more intimate or a taste of our regularly changing menu, we have a dining room just off the main bar, bookings and walk-ins welcome. While our first floor boasts two beautiful function rooms, available for casual dining and drinks or for exclusive hire and events.

We had lunch at 2pm when it was nice and quiet. Service was friendly, attentive and quick. Food was very good (although on some dishes you couldn't help thinking there could have been a bit more). The air conditioning meant that the temperature was perfect - even on the hottest day of the year. Overall a great experience.

Good food and good service from Eduart made up for the distraction of the TVs, mercifully they were on Mute, but why have them on at all?

Tasty well presented food but more vegetarian and vegan options would be good only one option available for each.

The evening went very well ,the group were welcomed and shown straight to the table. Service continued to be of a high standard and friendly level. Food was very good and arrived promptly and the drinks offering was varied and interesting. I have been to the Kings Stores before so was prepared for the lively bustle of the venue which some would say is too loud for them. Overall a very enjoyable evening relaxing with friends.

Would have been 5 stars, but we asked to be seated next to friends and weren’t. Otherwise it was great! Great place to watch the Champions League Final!

Excellent food while watching football match. I’ve asked for the table near the screen to watch Champions League final and was seated just opposite the screen. Could not be happier!

Kings Stores was the location to meet with friends we had not met with for almost 2 years. From the moment we walked in the staff were helpful and friendly. The menu is not extensive but offers popular trusted favourites. Nicely cooked and presented. We did not feel rushed we were there most of the afternoon as we had so much to catching up to do.

The upstairs restaurant is a great place to escape the noise of downstairs bar and experience the great service and food. It is hard to find a quiet place to eat in a pub round here so this is a great option

Very good pub food just 3 minutes away from Liverpool Street Station. Big screens for sports. We went on a Friday evening while afterwork was at its most raucous. But the food compensated for the jolly merriment and noise.

quite a small venue in the bar area for seating, I went with friends for sunday lunch. There were hardly any vegetables on the plate, the roast potatoes were quite hard and barely any gravy. However, they did supply more when I asked for it. Overall though I probably wouldn't rush back here

6 of us met up for a reunion after 20 years since we had worked together. We decided to book a table at the Kings Stores and even though the place was absolutely packed we had a great table where we could hear each other but the real bonus was the table service, never once having to battle our way to the bar. Delicious meals too! Many thanks to Abir and his colleagues for looking after us so well. The main bar area was very busy and noisy so worth considering booking a table if you are going to eat as well.

I booked a table for dinner here and based on the other reviews specifically asked for to be upstairs. When I arrived I found that upstairs was booked out for a private function and we were seated in the middle of the deafeningly loud bar area. Since I wanted to talk to the people I was meeting, not spend two hours shouting we made our excuses and went to the Italian over the road. I have no idea how the staff have any hearing left after a full shift.

Overall very good. The staff were very friendly and informative and our server was great and recommended a very nice wine. The sweet potatoe wedges were a little over done but we enjoyed everything. It would be great for a birthday party. The music was very loud downstairs but, upstairs, it was much better. I would recommend to others and go back again.
