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.

Had a wonderful 18th birthday event for our daughter. It was a late afternoon event so the restaurant was rather quiet. Lovely food and happy staff. Thank you.

When you first enter the hotel it has a great atmosphere. Sadly the restaurant was completely empty , not sure why on a saturday night? While some of us enjoyed our main courses I couldn't help but feel it was not worth the high prices. The ruhbarb crumble was very disappointing as was the accompanying oat milk custards, a tiny portion and cold.
The staff were very friendly indeed though.
Also as its in a hotel there is a very mixed audience,. Some dining in track suit bottoms straight from their hotel rooms. So its not so chic as the decor suggests and pics on the website suggests in my opinion.

A London based friend recommended this restaurant to me, hailing it as the best Full English breakfast in town. He wasn’t wrong. Delicious.

I have been here before , and will go back again , the food and my wine choice were excellent but alas, this time the service was not as good as it could have been.

After having the bill delivered, and after waiting for quite some time, I had to go the service point to pay for our meal.

This is a pleasant restaurant in the Great Northern Hotel. Waiters were very helpful and attentive. However, the food was disappointing - my starter of smoked mackerel strongly resembled the pre-packaged type found in supermarkets. A main course of gnocchi was acceptable but uninspiring but the deserts, Plum + Spilt Milk, was excellent.

What a great place to meet friends who are travelling to Scotland.
Have had a few meals unexpected meals here .
One question, why is there only one bar open? The last time there we had to stand.

Disappointing to have to ask for the lunch menu. “Sorry I’m always forgetting to give that”. Good location and nice layout for a confidential discussion. Food well presented albeit lacking seasoning.

Went for Sunday brunch with a friend and we both ended up having roast beef - the beef was yummy and came with a huge Yorkshire pudding and really beautifully cooked vegetables. We were too full to have desert so opted for truffles and coffee.

A lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon

The decor especially the lighting is beautiful, all the staff had a smile on their face, the menu was varied in it’s options for brunch and the food was great. Really great location as well. It wasn’t too busy but busy enough that it had a great buzz. Delicious Bloody Mary too.

Disappointment is the way I would describe this evening.
Our expectations were very high after the amazing Valentine's experience we had last year. Food portions seemed on the small side. Presentation was lacking. A sharing Valentine's dessert we expected a bit more than a few shortbreads and sponges chucked on a plate for a dessert.
The management expertise has changed too. Sad to say after all these years we will not be visiting again.

My American guest had the mackerel starter. It was an embarrassment. Pieces of smoked mackerel on a small mound of salad. A 5 year old could have prepared it. Maybe I missed something. The main courses were better but overpriced. I won’t be going back.

It was ok. The waiter spilled water all over our table and we had to ask her to clean it up and bring us new napkins. The beef wellington was great.

Hidden gem situated between Kings Cross and St Pancras station.
The upper lounge and main restaurant have a lovely ambiance. Shame it suffers from the same problem as other hotel restaurants being over-priced. Worth a visit if you are on a company expense account.

My boyfriend booked this as part of a Christmas gift to me and I’m afraid to say it was a very disappointing experience. The table we were initially sat at was a very awkward shape for 2 people to eat at, and we asked to move to a different table. After ordering a pre-dinner cocktail each and wine for the meal, we were told that ingredients for one of the cocktails was not available so another had to be chosen. The wine then appeared before the starter or either of the cocktails. We finished both our starters (my broccoli soup was very tasty) before the cocktails even arrived. After the starter plates were cleared, I explained that I had dropped the remaining piece of bread on the floor, which was greeted with a nod and it being left on the table (no offer of more bread). Mains were perfectly serviceable, without being noteworthy. We eschewed dessert, ordered the bill and then waited to pay. After 15 minutes and waving down a server, we finally paid a bill of £120+. For a restaurant that was barely a third full at 7pm on a Saturday night, this was a very disappointing evening

The vegetarian breakfast is poor, it feels more like its the meat one with just the meat taken off, no potato, no veggie sausage or anything and why does vegetarian mean spicy beans?

It just looks like half a plate that you couldn't be bothered with
