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.

The manager made sure it was an absolute nightmare for us from the beginning to the end. The pub was empty, not a coincidence. To avoid at all costs.

We regret to hear that you are displeased with your recent experience with us again! The manager on duty was trying to keep everyone happy as we had a few people complaining about the noise. It's very disappointing that you have left us your second 1 star reivew in one week. I hope you can understand that we are still operating under governmet guidelines, and we cannot have tables mixing with each other. We hope you will consider us again in the future. Take care. Kind Regards, Dario

What a discovery!

We walked in and we got warmly greeted and asked if we had booked a table also he helped us to do the NHS Test & Trace which we both find it understandable. As we got seated and served, the place got busier and seeing the host greeting the guests and assuring that NHS Test & Trace is followed it made us feel safe, stopped from having second thoughts we even stayed for dinner. I had jerk chicken and my friend had dbl cheese burger both were delicious and outstanding service.

I highly recommend and surely we will be back.

Simply put the manager treated myself and my brother disgracefully. He called my brother impatient on his arrival due to a difficulty with the QR code system. We then sat down to watch a football and have a nice chat with friends to which we celebrated as normal with the rest of the pub as a goal went in. And he decided to specifically come up to us and tell us to be quiet we weren't overly loud he was obviously having a bad day and looking for someone to take it out on. Terrible service from him which is a shame since the female bar staff were lovely.

Place was a little dark and felt lacking in atmosphere but that's probably just indicative of the times. The staff were LOVELY, perfectly placed level of engagement with us, very attentive but not invasive. Thank you!

Great place to swing by after work for a couple of cold ones and some pub grub.
The table service was fantastic especially in the current climate.
We didn’t get her name but the Italian girl who attended to us all evening was fantastic. We’ll be back soon no doubt.

Had a great Sunday lunch here on 19 July 2020. Melt in the mouth roast pork belly, cracking roasties, and crackling, tasty veg and luscious gravy. My friend's roast beef was equally good. Great price compared to other trendier Sunday roast joints. Friendly staff. Bottle of excellent Rioja at £27 but cheaper, but decent, wine available. Seriously worth a trip to Liverpool Street. Just needs more customers in these strange Covid days. Highly recommended.

Was lovely until all the West Ham fans arrived to watch the football. Abusive, intimidating, obnoxious. Staff did nothing, was left to punters to try to intervene which predictably almost ended in a brawl. We and most others left. Pretty unpleasant experience.
Id recommend the place but check if there is a game on first. Management need to be clear on who their audience is.

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.
