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.

Although a Monday I expected a restaurant of this type and positioned where it is in central London, to be sharp, it wasn’t ....

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!

Not sure if this is just breakfast - but don’t be in a hurry. Every time I’ve eaten here, the food is VERY slow in coming out. Not ideal when you’ve got a train to catch. Yesterday was almost 40 minutes.

I was really torn between given it a 4 and a 5... would probably give it a 4.5 if I could. The restaurant itself and the decor are lovely, really really nice place to have a relaxing meal. The food was lovely - some of us rated ours as amazing, some as very good. The staff were lovely with the exception of one slightly unfriendly one. Our waitress overheard us saying it was my husband's birthday and they kindly brought some chocolate truffles with a candle and a happy birthday message written on the plate, which was a very sweet gesture (and rather nice chocolate, may I add!).

All in all, we had a lovely evening and we'll be definitely going back.

For me birthday brunch!
We had a lovely time. Staff were friendly and it wasn’t hot (hottest day of the year). I was even given some chocolates as a birthday gift and a card! Lovely service. Lovely food! Cocktail were pricy but I suppose it’s the area!

Plum and Spilt Milk never disappoints. I eat there every time I’m in London because I know I will enjoy the meal. I’ve had the fish, the steak, and this last time, the scallops. I shared the scallops as an appetizer, but it was so good, I also ordered it as my entree. I never pass up the Plum and Spilt Milk for dessert!

Staff is always amazingly attentive and courteous. I just love this place and will keep coming back as long as the food and service stay consistent.
