    One of the best Sunday roasts I’ve had! A lovely spot with a really great atmosphere. Went there with 3 other friends and we’ve really enjoyed our late lunch. The only problem I have is while at the bar downstairs, a waiter took away my glass without asking, while I still had a drink in there. Found it extremely rude and inconsiderate. Had a great experience with other employees so hoping it was just an unfortunate event, would be good to educate staff on this though.

    Came here for breakfast and the food was delicious. I got the fried chicken Benedict and my mum got the scrambled egg with salmon. Staff were a bit slow with service despite it not being very busy and it was also freezing inside- I had to wear my big coat all brekkie which isn’t the nicest. Overall I would recommend coming here as the food is great and so is the location.

    Had some drinks here - great atmosphere inside, love the look of the place lots of glass and brassy colours. Staff were really friendly and gave us good advice re the wine list, also had a delicious hot toddy.

    The menu reflected that of classic English pub food, but elevated. The stunning views added to the overall very enjoyable experience. I would say that it is this that you are paying for since although the food is nice, nothing particularly irresistible. Would recommend for anyone who wants a classic King’s Cross view and London lunch.

    Dreadful. Consistently rude - from the bar to the restaurant with the exception of the receptionist and one waitress. The chicken arrived raw as shown on picture. The manager was very rude and tried to convince me that this is not pink and that was not their fault but they are happy to change it if I insist. Lots of extremely loud customers. It felt more like a cantine at the stadium rather than a restaurant. Not recommended
