Went to a party here recently. The venue was brilliant and the staff were lovely and friendly! I would definitely recommend it as a private hire venue and may host my own party here in the future!
Nice quiet bar (went on a Tuesday around 8pm), served quickly at bar, nice atmosphere.
Nice pub. Not much ale but what was on was in good condition. Pleasant roof terrace but a lot of steps to get there and walls too high to get much if a view.
Good beer and nice atmosphere. Handy for Kings X.
Wonderful venue for a private event. Had such a blast. Great vibe.
Fantastic fish and chips! I was their for a business meeting on Monday 11th Feb; we were very well looked after by attentive staff. Very nice vibe too - Smart and relaxed. More...
Stunning hasten with stunning food. Service with a smile. Hidden away from the crowds. Expect a nicely furnished new age feel but warm dark wooded pub
Nice bar serving good food and drink, we found this on our way to the Emirates after the tube was evacuated and we decided to walk.
Last night I played at the Driver in Kings Cross 3rd floor. I have played in many private hire function places and I have to say this place is REALLY GOOD value for money. They have a late licence till 2am Thurs & Fri & 3am on Sat. The drinks are cheap. It looks good (not high end) the sound system is fantastic, they have CDJs or Technics & Pioneer mixers for your DJ to play on. The place is centrally located and they have three rooms on three floors like this one pictured and a gastropub ground floor - for a meal before your drinking sessh. I'd highly recommend this place for people who are looking for rooms for parties (where the bars and clubs are asking silly minimum spends). Best private hire sound system I've played on in along time (loud, clear and bass heavy too - even though you can't see the subs). Remember... it's cheap so you can pay your DJ MORE! ;) More...
I had my celebration fundraiser here and I absoloutly loved the venue! (second floor) Event manager, Alice and all staff were amazing and very attentive. Great food, drinks and ambiance! I highly recommend, a great venue, especially for an event! �� More...
Work 'do' on 1st Floor! Good venue, looked great on ground floor too as we came in and friendly staff! Would like to try again to sample menu!
Went to the Driver for lunch on Tuesday 11th August at around 1 O'Clock and the pub was packed full of diners. I was seated after 8 minutes of arriving and given a comprehensive 'Gastro' style menu. I ordered cod and chips and my partner had the burger. Both were of great quality as was the attentive service. Strongly advise to book in advance though to avoid disappointment. More...
top notch place x
Visited The Driver for the first time this evening. All the staff were super friendly and very accommodating as I'd brought my puppy along and they managed to find us a place to sit. I'll be back!
What an amazing Friday night we had in this place! We've been once before and it was inviting enough that we just had to come back for dinner but this time we had the pleasure of meeting an incredible member of staff named Viera who completely blew us away. Genuine friendly service, constant laughter in her presence and you could tell she knew what she was talking about. Simply amazing. We will be back for sure. More...

I have been scouting for a venue for my bday party and Gemma has been really nice to show me all the options both times I went, we also stayed for dinner, we had scallops with butternut squash puree, chorizo, halloumi avocado salad and sharing plate with falafel, courgette and halloumi sqewers, I also had 2 raspberry collins cocktail and we were very happy with quality and taste of the food. I think I will book one the rooms for my party! More...
Lovely cosy friendly place, great wine, great sharing platters, great staff
I had my 40th birthday party at the Driver and it was brilliant. The food was fantastic, all the staff were very helpful and helped make the evening run smoothly. If you plan to have an event then I highly recommend The Driver!!! More...
Great venue. Great food and great service for our large group of over 50 people. Roof terrace was a lovely space. Would definitely recommend and go back.
Lovely food, lovely place, great service and the little dog is cute �
Good spot for a private gathering. Staff were very attentive. They were also a great help ensuring everyone left safely.
Life's a card game
Fabulous food, great atmosphere and genuinely lovely service.
Interesting pub with variety of drinks. seems to be a choice for many with friendly staff.. On a Wednesday and attracting quite a number of pub loving people... Love the sculpture art works around and the 14year old dog (I think owned by one of the friendly staff). Enjoyed the food too, I must add More...
Great food, great service, nice atmosphere and decent beer selection. Oh, and friendly resident dog.
Great to sit on a roof bar in London. Could do with more fraught beer on roof terrace and maybe improve on the view. Nice atmosphere and enjoyable.
We had a staff work drinks here for 60 people on the rooftop terrace. The terrace itself is lovely, the staff were so pleasant and helpful, and the food was fantastic. We will definitely be going back here again. More...
This place is great with a relaxed but busy atmosphere and lots of crazy trinkets around. Even if I had a negative thought for the place, which I don't, I would never say as I wouldn't want to upset the owner who is quite literally the nicest person I've met. She was attentive and always made sure my group were taken care of, something she did all night with everyone. I would definitely return... Even if it's just to be ignored by her lovely dog again.
