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.

Its a nice place and food is ok - the service however is terrible. Every person who works there has an attitude. I thought the food was for free until the bill came. London has alot of choice to go there.

Good brunch food, but very poor service - waiters and other staff seemed very busy but consistently ignored the customers and left us waiting to order and to get their attention. The setting is beautiful in the old railway hotel at Kings Cross. The prices are a little on the steep side.

Delicious food and tasty cocktails. The decor of the dining room is sophisticated and the views of the station below provide a contrast. Lights were a little too bright considering it was an evening visit.

I have to say I found the decor and food both of a very high standard so had no problem with that. However, the service was incredibly rude, I can’t remember being treated that way in years. There was a general unfriendliness from the entry staff to the table waitresses which I can handle, but when it came to payment the waitress was very abrupt, took payment for the meal on my card but then forgot to add the tip so then had to add that on as a separate payment (in hindsight I should have withheld the tip!). The card machine then refused to take payment and she then accused me that my card wasn’t working (even though she had used it literally 1 minute earlier..) - when we pointed this out she gave me an indignant look and repeated it wasn’t working and refused to accept it was the machine. It turned out that the card machine was faulty but we had no apology. Not great..

Food was outstanding- delicious flavours and premium presentation. Unfortunately the staff did dilute the premium experience a little bit. We didn't feel like we were "waited on" as we anticipated for a restaurant of this calibre and therefore resented paying the service charge.

5 of us for a brunch to see off our Son to university.
Long delay between ordering and getting our food and when it arrived it was lukewarm and in parts ( rather worryingly sausage ) was undercooked. When we complained the reason given was that the chef was busy ( restaurant was only half full ) To be fair they removed items from the bill but we would have preferred to pay full price and have hot cooked food.

The menu seems a bit stuck after several visits, but is always high quality food. Service and attentiveness is impeccable. Costs are high even for this quality and mark up on drinks a tad too high. But I will be going back again!

I like this place for meetings when we need to talk. The environment is great and the staff are friendly and accommodating (this time we needed to swap tables because the sun was too strong, and they were fine about it). The food was good on the whole, but the starter didn’t quite work - coconut and pea hummus was inedibly soapy, but full marks for trying. It’s expensive, but you’re paying for the convenience of a good meeting place over lunch at Kings Cross station. I will definitely be back.

I went for a business breakfast. It took 50 minutes for our food to arrive, the excuse being that we had ordered boiled eggs. The other dishes were cold.
Normally the service is a lot better

Excellent food and service
Our waiter was very friendly and made us feel very welcome even though the restaurant was quite quiet and you can easily be forgotten when it’s like that.
Absolutely loved the plate of truffles for my friends birthday and would definitely return
Thank you an excellent experience

I took my parents here for a celebration brunch. Generally we enjoyed our meal, except for the eggs - we all had poached eggs, and the ones my parents received were completely hard boiled inside, whereas mine were runny with uncooked white inside. The portions are large and satisfying, and the coffee is of a good standard. Service is attentive and the restaurant has a pleasant ambience.

The restaurant noise levels were quiet and hence it was easy to have a discussion with my guest. The menu coices were excellent and the food delivery was prompt and quality excellent.
The staff from the first arrival to end were all attentive, helpful and delivered excellent service.

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.
