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.

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.

I’ve deducted points for the “welcome” we got. We arrived slightly late (about 8 mins), which we’re definitely not in the habit of doing, and we apologised. But the reception we got: no smile, not even a hello. Just: “Ok but your late so you’ll have to order quickly.”

Yes we were a little late, we accept that, but still WELL within the grace period. If they didn’t want us there, just tell us our table has gone. Don’t so grudgingly take us to our table as though we’ve just ruined your whole week.

Despite not feeling at all welcome, they cooked up a decent steak and chips. And the Bloody Mary was superb. Also, all the other staff were excellent and courteous and speedy.

Shame about the welcome.

Outstanding food, excellent location and setting. Head waitress is incredibly stroppy for no apparent reason. Which is a shame because everything else at this place works really well.

A lovely setting, but for me personally, as a Sunday lunchtime the choice of food was very limited and less than I expected.
The food we did have was nice but the place was virtually empty so didn't have much atmosphere. This could be due to people still wary about venturing out due to Covid or it could usually be like this.
Will definitely try again in the future on another day

Nowhere near as good as it was before Marriott took over, food is poor effort they can’t make a good cocktail. To put it short, don’t go

Went for a late Saturday Brunch to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Liked the setting, champagne brunch is good value, friendly & efficient service. Lovely gesture of chocolates for the Birthday girl. Would go back again to try the the main menu on the weekdays.

Definitely paying for the convenience of beings close to St Pancras, but the food is tasty, if not particularly diverse. As is perhaps to be expected from a hotel restaurant, it was quite empty.

The menu’s quite short but it covers all bases and the food is very tasty - not the cheapest night out but definitely worth it when you want to treat yourself. Impeccable service and great wine pairing recommendations

The staff were lovely but the service was a bit slow particularly given that there was hardly anyone in the restaurant.
The food was overpriced for what it was. You needed to pay for side dishes to go with most meals and the food certainly wasn't outstanding which would have reflected the price. Wine was very expensive and nothing outstanding. Watch the menu as they only price by the glass or carafe.
The sauce with my sole was supposed to have garlic in it, if it was there you couldn't even taste a hint of it. My partner had the squid risotto and the squid was a bit tough.
Some of my Jersey Royals (not sure they were) we not cooked properly.
Shame as the venue and location is really nice.
Sadly, I won't be returning.

The food was great, we really enjoyed the ribeye and burrata. They also gave us a lovely little plate of complimentary truffles for our anniversary. Highly recommend the signature cocktails: breakfast at Tiffany’s, lady violet and the message in a bottle. The service was great.

One small tip: if you’re not British and want water with dinner, ask for tap not still otherwise they’ll give you a bottle of water rather than a carafe and charge you £4.50 for it. Other than that A+.

Really enjoy going to this venue and pleased it has opened up. Staff are friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about their offering.

Would have given it five stars but the portions need to be a little bigger and service a bit faster. Neither is really an issue as our party was talking so much we hardly noticed.

We love to go to the Great Northern Hotel for cocktails first. They do the best cosmopolitan in London. Afterwards we went upstairs for dinner at Plum & Split Milk. It was our first time here and were impressed. In particular the Summer set menu is really good value for money. We also ordered from the A la Carte menu and would really recommend the Cornish Squid and Eton Mess for dessert!

Overall a lovely experience and would return.
Thank you.
