The Signal Box is located upstairs in the station’s terrace at the Eastern end featuring a bar and dining space and an “outside bar” with seating. A pub has been mooted in this area for some time, indeed it was initially thought that Greene King had an option on the space, but now it is occupied by London's main brewer of cask beer. It occupies an L-shaped space that can be accessed by stairs, lift or escalator. There are three distinct areas, two of which offer table service. The outer terrace looks over the main concourse and faces the train indicator boards although a large pillar tends to obscure the view. There should also be a train indicator screen in the main bar while there is also a smaller bar in the dining space. All six cask beers were from Fuller's in the week of opening. Real ale range:- Dark Star Hophead; Fuller's Oliver's Island; Fuller's London Pride; Fuller's ESB; Two seasonal beers.
