British
Simple classics, beautifully cooked in an atmosphere elegant yet relaxed

The perfect place to meet, eat, work or relax in the heart of London's King's Cross St Pancras

A menu based on seasonal British ingredients cooked simply yet creatively, with new dishes including Mey Selections' beef croquettes with horseradish mayonnaise; pan-fried fillet of pollock with smoked bacon, peas and baby gem and creamed beetroot spelt, beetroot crisps and goat's curd.

Plum + Spilt Milk keeps service turning from dawn through to midnight. Floor-to-ceiling windows and hand-blown glass light bulbs warm a restaurant and dining room in a class all of its own.

The menu seems a bit stuck after several visits, but is always high quality food. Service and attentiveness is impeccable. Costs are high even for this quality and mark up on drinks a tad too high. But I will be going back again!

Good location and comfortable, nice decor and booths above King’s Cross Station - pleasant food (though small portions). Good place to come for a quick bite and chat.

I like this place for meetings when we need to talk. The environment is great and the staff are friendly and accommodating (this time we needed to swap tables because the sun was too strong, and they were fine about it). The food was good on the whole, but the starter didn’t quite work - coconut and pea hummus was inedibly soapy, but full marks for trying. It’s expensive, but you’re paying for the convenience of a good meeting place over lunch at Kings Cross station. I will definitely be back.

I went for a business breakfast. It took 50 minutes for our food to arrive, the excuse being that we had ordered boiled eggs. The other dishes were cold.
Normally the service is a lot better

Excellent food and service
Our waiter was very friendly and made us feel very welcome even though the restaurant was quite quiet and you can easily be forgotten when it’s like that.
Absolutely loved the plate of truffles for my friends birthday and would definitely return
Thank you an excellent experience

I took my parents here for a celebration brunch. Generally we enjoyed our meal, except for the eggs - we all had poached eggs, and the ones my parents received were completely hard boiled inside, whereas mine were runny with uncooked white inside. The portions are large and satisfying, and the coffee is of a good standard. Service is attentive and the restaurant has a pleasant ambience.

Nice but uninspired food, excellent service, but the place was half empty on a Friday night. Far too expensive for what it is but still pleasant overall

The restaurant noise levels were quiet and hence it was easy to have a discussion with my guest. The menu coices were excellent and the food delivery was prompt and quality excellent.
The staff from the first arrival to end were all attentive, helpful and delivered excellent service.

Very nice brunch menu with good choice for everyone. Do be aware though that the coffee pricing downstairs in the bar is rather on the expensive side. Better value upstairs. Pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff.

We had to wait to order and it took 15 mons for my sister’s diet coke to arrive The service was really poor, but the food was quite good but extremely expensive for the tiny portions of extremely unexciting food

We enjoyed our dinner at Plum and Spilt milk last Saturday night.

The food was delicious.Two of us had the duck,which was very tasty,while the other two enjoyed the sea bass.

We shared the plum and spilt milk,which was wonderful and the chocolate mousse/salted caramel dessert.

The service was good and the bar had a good choice of spirits.

I was surprised that the restaurant was quiet as we had a very good meal and we would happily go back to try the brunch or back for dinner.

A perfect way to start the day in a lovely restaurant with a very good breakfast choice. Staff were attentive and efficient. Maybe food could have been a bit hotter but otherwise a pleasant experience we would do again when visiting London.

Food was tasteless. Courgette starter was soggy. Fish main course rubber. Service overbearing in a way. Lots of interruptions. Seems to be laid out as a club and was very quiet for a Friday evening. Other restaurants in area were packed. Food needs to be a lot better than this for the prices charged.

I’ve been before and it was very good. Today my scallops were barely warm. The beef quite well done ( they said it would be quite rare). Veg non descript. The potatoes looked as if they’d been peeled last week - rather grey looking and not appetising at all. I have to say the plum and spilt milk pud was lovely. Service not great considering the place was a quarter full which surprised me. Disappointed to the point I probably won’t go again I’m afraid.

I've eaten at Plum then nothing. After about 15 mins we caught the attention of a waitress and ordered glasses of champagne, which took a while to come; then had to catch attention again to order food, and yet again to order wine. Tiresome, because the staff were certainly not run off their feet!

The Plum + Spilt Milk is in a handy position, especially when you are meeting up with friends, and coming in from different areas. The food is always good, and I am forever tempted by the Full English, but they also have exciting vegetarian options.

Went with friends who had just had harassed 10 hour drive so needed something soothing. And this was - interesting and tasty tarty cocktails, menu good for veggies and the carnivores with imaginative presentation.
Only reason not 5 star all the way is that the service was slow (but very charming)

Everything was outstanding, the chef and all the staff were fantastic. Food was divine and atmosphere classy and very welcoming. This is one of the top high quality places to have a business dinner, go on a unforgottable date, celebrate a special occasion, stop by for a great foodie experience when in town on your own, or go for a drink and the signature dessert that bears the same name as the restaurant..You will not regret!
