Simple classics, beatifully cooked courtesy of highly acclaimed chef Mark Sargeant, 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. Sublime.

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.

The food was absolutely horrific. After waiting 40 minutes for the food... a burger! We said to the waitress that the chicken isn’t he burger was non existent and she replied that’s how it comes. The Asian slaw was not saw it was dried up carrot and lettuce plonked on the side of a plate. The food was practically inedible and I was completely shocked by the food and the service. We will never return

I booked a table for an early supper with my daughter. As the weather was so bad when I arrived at St Pancras I decided to go straight to the restaurant. I was welcomed warmly and had a cup of tea and a dessert in a bar area. i was very impressed by all the staff I met and by the whole ambience. The food and service in the restaurant was delicious and impeccable. A very comfortable and not too formal atmosphere with delicious, imaginative food is perfect for us. We will be back!

The food was excellent apart from the green salad which was old and had clear brown edges to the cut surfaces. It was returned to the kitchen whereupon a larger bowl was produced but of equally poor quality. Our delightful waiter dealt with it all brilliantly and reductions in the cost of our meal was readily forthcoming. It was just such a shame that the food that needed such care was excellent but a simple bowl of salad leaves was so shabbily produced. Having said that we will be back.

The location is perfect for a meal before a train journey as was my reason for dining here. The venue is very impressive and staff incredibly friendly and attentive. Food is stunning along with a very well chosen wine list. All in all will certainly become a regular!

The staff where nice and the setting is good. But the food was awful. The new potatoes where served in burnt butter , leaving a bad taste in mouth that took ages to dissipate. The rest of the food was very bland and over priced. I wish I had complained but I needed to leave.

It was a Saturday night and only 4 tables had people on. Dishes were very small, a “rack of lamb” Main for £30 turned out to be two lamb cutlets With not accompaniments. Food was ok but not worth the price tag - was about £80 a head with wine. Service was perfunctory, not rude but not welcoming. Dining room is a nice setting but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone, there are much better restaurants in London.

We had booked a table 1.5hours prior to our train leaving for a quick brunch. We mentioned this & were advised that we may not ne served in enough time. However, the manager went out of their way to ensure we had our order taken ASAP so that we could receive our order quickly. It came really quickly & the food was absolutely delicious. Thank you so much for accommodating us and ensuring we made our train.

FOOD
Had 2 courses of which 2 were excellent though by no means perfect.
The lobster salad starter was delicious and the lobster had been beautifully cooked although I was surprised at how much shell was left in the meat.
The main of pork loin with miso was also beautifully cooked although by the end it was starting to taste a little dry probably as there was no quite enough veg to go with it.
Dessert was an immense let down. The treacle tart tasted as though it had been acquired from a supermarket and the clotted cream ice cream tasted like a normal vanilla ice cream with some raspberry sauce. The port paring in the menu really didn’t work for me
SERVICE
Seemed there were loads of staff to cater for the full restaurant but service was just really slow and I never got the feeling anyone really wanted to serve me.

Unfussy but smart decor that could accommodate either a casual meal or something more special. Attentive, helpful staff with good knowledge of the menu and wine list. Extensive choice on the menu but not (as can sometimes be the case) at the expense of the quality - the food was good and interesting without being pretentious. Not especially cheap, but then this is central London. I would go back. Their breakfast and lunch menus looked great as well.

This visit was disappointing. But let's start on a high. The Restaurant is lovely, the service was excellent.The table exactly what I requested. However the food was mediocre. The scallops bore a strong resemblance to queenies. If they had been served at Mark Sargeant's Rocksalt restaurant they would have been sent back to the kitchen as, also, they were overcooked. Then Rack of Spring Lamb, what can go wrong, nothing really beautifully cooked and presented; but just 2 pieces, where was the third ?
A real disappointment.

Nice venue and good vibe on a Sunday but service was a bit haphazard. Despite several tables being available we were seated at the least attractive option and told the others were reserved already. Only for other guests to arrive and be offered a choice of tables. We did then move to a better table so that was fine.
Waiting staff were friendly but overworked so took a while to take orders and tended to get distracted by other customers en-route to the table.
Strange that they only do a limted brunch menu and two roasts until 4pm on a Sunday. But nevertheless our roast pork dinners were good. Only criticism was that the crackling couldn’t be eaten as was too chewy and didn’t want to risk broken teeth! Pork itself was good and veg very nice. Good pudding and cocktails were good. Overall nice ambience and Venue and food was nice but more staff needed.

Plum and Spilt milk is always a favourite of mine. Went at 14.30 for late lunch and the service started well - but got a bit 'off peak' possibly as staff went off shift. When you are charging expensive prices then you need to make sure that you are on point all the time. I still highly recommend and will be back in the future.
