The Flying Scotsman is a Grade II listed public house at 2–4 Caledonian Road, Kings Cross, London.[1]

It was originally called The Scottish Stores, and was designed by the architects Wylson and Long, probably for James Kirk, and built in 1900–01.[1]

The Flying Scotsman closed in November 2015, and re-opened as The Scottish Stores (its original name) in December 2015, as a pub specialising in craft beer.[2]

The pub features in the 1999 film The Protagonists.
