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.

I had better memories of the food, I have to say I would have expected a way higher performance from the kitchen given we were one of two tables that night. Service was lovely and drinks from the bar downstairs were also very good

We had a nice lunch at Plum and Split Milk. The three of us respectively ordered the bacon burger, the mac the portion should have been double the size! Overall, it was a nice environment, the service was fine, but we just felt it was overpriced for what it was. I wouldn't return.

Food was pretty awful and service was not much better. The staff were all over the place and came out with the wrong order twice...

A very chaotic atmosphere. Very disappointing, avoid.

I have been to this restaurant before and continue to enjoy the food and atmosphere
It was really good to see the staff in PPE making everyone feel safe during this Covid crisis.
I went with my family and we were all very well looked after and the food was the expected high quality.

Our initial reception was with someone clearly in the wrong job but after that the service was excellent. Food was good but small portions. No ambience as sadly it was deserted due to Covid.

Fantastic food and wine good service but unfortunately it was quite empty and ambience wasn’t as good as usual. No fault of Plum & spilt milk just the impact of COVID-19 would definitely recommend to friends

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.

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.

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
