    At the corner of Kings Cross this slightly hidden restaurant offers a haven of peace, quiet and comfort from the hustle and bustle down at street level. Wood panelled with comfortable chairs this is a place to relax. A fairly short but appealing menu and excellent wine list are provided. Service is professional attentive and smart. The crab starter and fish main course were well presented very tasty and reasonably priced. Even the desserts tempted me - a delicious and artistically presented crème caramel with added fruits. A lunch of this quality including aperitifs and a bottle of Pinot Noir for £100 per head in this area seemed excellent value. We will go again!

    The staff were delightful and so friendly and engaging. The food was just ok. Both our main course meats were very chewy ( some of which is down to the cut but not totally). The vegetables were great and the crab start was very good.

    Beautiful venue. Food was OK - though the eton mess was amazing. Service was slow and unattentive. Had to keep asking serving staff for things - drinks menu, to be able to order, asked twice for coffee, asked for condiments. Very slack on the service front and it wasn't even that busy Drinks menu lacked non alcoholic alternatives - e.g seedlip/alcohol free spirits or beers that would be commonly available in a supermarket. Overall it was ok. Nothing special. Good location but there are many other restaurants in Kings Cross I'd go to instead next time I'm in the area

    Everything was great apart from the fact that our reservation was at 10am….and they closed the kitchen AT 10AM!!! So they wanted us to order as soon as we sat down and we felt very rushed. So weird they allowed us to reserve at that time! The service and food was amazing though, so I’d definitely come back…just not at closing time!

    Went there because Condi Nast listed it in its top 50 restaurants in London. It's located near St Pancras Station and so was conveniently located for me. The food was good but nothing special: the crab salad consisted of a quenelle of minced crab, with a piece of toast and some dill cucumbers. I had the poached trout for the main course with French fries. The fish was bland though cooked well. I then waited for a waiter to show me the dessert menu. No-one offered and the restaurant was not full. I had to ask a waiter for some tea and again had to ask another waiter who walked by for the bill. The price was reasonable but I would not rush there again.

    This was a good place to catch up for a quiet chat over refreshments tea or coffee . It’s more of a restaurant but mid afternoon was quiet . I think they expected us to eat but it’s a really good place for a business coffee near at Pancras and kings cross stations. The decor and ambience was lovely.

    This place is on the first floor, not the ground floor, which also serve food as Bistro/bar. It’s very well appointed and waiters/tresses are in a modern uniform. They were excellent. The food was good. We enjoyed the experience and will go again. It’s not at all like a busy station venue up there.

    We had breakfast at the restaurant after arriving at Kings Cross early. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, and we chatted a lot. Mostly, though, we were very surprised at the quality of the food. Not only was it well prepared and presented, but the quality of the ingredients was clear. We will eat here again.

    Beautiful dining room. Really good service. Breakfast was one English breakfast at £19 which had 1 egg, 1 sausage, 1 piece of bacon. It was ok but def nothing special even in the taste and poached eggs on toast with avocado, again really plain, no chillies, onions etc in the avocado. Was still glad we went to experience the atmosphere etc but have had way way way better brekkies.

    Discovered this gem completely by accident butcdecided to book it celebrate my cousin's birthday. The decor is classic but not stuffy- so comfortable. Our server Christopher was excellent and sweet and the front of house manager was very attentive. Their recommendations from the menu were spot on! Asparagas, lamb, Eton mess/chocolate mousse. Prepared to perfection! Don't forget a bottle of rosé- delicious! I can't wait to return accompanied by my friends! Worth every penny spent!

    We were very pleased to have discovered Plum & Spilt Milk and had a very pleasant evening. The food, service, and ambiance were quite special. The sea bream and trout were very well prepared, and our waiter Chris took good care of the 3 of us. We also found the building and ATT work very interesting. We are happy to recommend this unique restaurant-.

    It is a nice place and the staff were helpful but a couple of points: - the crispy bacon was so crispy it was difficult to cut - everything arrived together - the plum yogurt pot and the fruit salad should have arrived first, followed by the main hot dishes. This meant they had to be eaten after the mains. Thank you.

    The food and service was really excellent. We went for a late lunch when it was 98 F outside. The restaurant was air conditioned and had a wonderful ambience. Make reservation in advance! When we came back to Kings Cross later that evening we stopped in at the GNH bar for a drink; which was also very nice.

    Very average food but very expensive. Ordered the sweetcorn fritters and poached eggs - the eggs were over cooked and not runny. My friend had the pancakes and they were very dry. When charging £4.80 for a black Americano - you expect better! We were the only people in there so no excuse either.

    Visited on a Saturday for Brunch. Not bad. Menu had grubby finger marks on it which is something so easily rectified and creates a nicer impression. Waiting staff were ok but didn’t seem very happy or friendly. Nice options on the menu. Food good. The whole experience was just ‘ok’ Would rather get a table at the Booking Office in the St Pancras hotel.
