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.

Good food and great decor. The staff were very friendly and helpful when choosing dishes, although service was a touch slow given the restaurant was quiet at the time we visited. Would definitely recommend, particularly for special occasions.

Found this restaurant in a Google search and decided to give it a try. Dinner with a friend/business colleague. Good food, good service, and I think reasonable price (friend paid!). Can’t recommend it too highly. I will definitely go again. (Booking using Opentable was very efficient. Received email confirmation a few minutes after making the reservation online.)

Plum and spilt milk was recommended to me by a work colleague as I was in town travelling. When myself and my work friend arrived we were in awe of the decor and light features but unfortunately the meal itself wasn’t so brilliant. Coupled with a very dour waiter I wouldn’t be racing back!

A terrible meal;we opted for the duo of roast ( pork & beef ) ; meat was fine , although crackling on pork chewy , but the vegetables were disgusting - the roast potatoes were inedible, the vegetables dried up & the yorkshires tasted stale. Would not eat here again although stayed at the Great Northern & that was fine ( although did not try breakfast ).

Could not fault, staff very helpful and attentive, (but not over the top) food was exceptional. We were celebrating a birthday and we’re given glass of champagne when we were all seated and a celebration plate of truffles when the meal was finished.
Thoroughly enjoyed

We were processed through our meal with huge speed and if they are seeking anything other than a fast food reputation they should think a bit more about how they deliver the food. The starters were very nice, however both mains were disappointing. Wouldn’t look to go back, I am afraid London offers far too many better options.

We had a really nice, leisurely meal and the staff were still attentive after 2 hours! The menu was pricier than I expected - around £30 for mains is quite punchy. Sides at £4.50 is also steep. But I liked the decor, atmosphere and the fact we could linger as long as we wanted. The sea bass was delicious but the John Dory fillets were very small and a tad overdone. The dark chocolate mousse was divine. I also liked the carafe options on the wine list.

Great looking restaurant and amazing staff! Food wasn’t the best I’ve had but then we did go for the £25 per 2 courses over lunch menu so fair enough. I’d defo go back.

Welcome was poor, disinterested and I had to get up and go for menus whilst in the bar.

We were not told the a la carte menu was not in place when we booked so this just left the limited brunch menu. Food was ok - Cauliflower hummus was god for what it was. Pork chop was small & very fatty, veg with ponzu sauce were flavourless. Burger average, fries over salty. Asparagus was good (as it should be in May) Hollandaise sauce not freshly made. I ordered sauté potatoes and got fried baby potatoes in their skins - these are not sauté. Dessert was good and coffee excellent.

Wine list good; excellent Provence rose for £35. Pre-lunch drinks expensive £12 for an Aperol spritz (just Aperol and soda) is ridiculous when Campari and Orange was only £9?

Service in the restaurant was friendly and helpful.

Perhaps it was a bad day but at £190 for 2 people who had a pork chop and burger for main course, it was very poor value for money. There are much better options in London which was perhaps why they only had 30 customers in for lunch.

Décor is great but food lacklustre, lacked skill in execution, lacked balance of flavour and poor seasoning.

Just average food. Great G&T at the bar. Nice servers but they were too busy so service was slow and impersonal. Nice ambiance but really uncomfortable. Banquette seating and oval tables look cool but is uncomfortable and impractical. There were 4 if us. Oval table too big to sit across from each other and have a conversation. We all tried to sit in the banquette but some sections are the hard supports and it’s awkaward to have a conversation. You have to have your head turned all the time and those in the middle are swiveling back and forth like watching a tennis match. We moved to a traditional table. Better but table support was so large there was nowhere to put your feet. In the end average food, disappointing service, uncomfortable setting. Others may not be so bothered by it but I won’t go back. Sadly disappointed.

We had a fabulous experience. Our mains were delayed and we were given a free soup. Our waiter was the right level of attentive, polite but had a real personality. Very good. Only thing is that it could have had some lighter options - we were there for a lunch meeting and would have appreciated more salad options.

We had very pleasant evening meal here with friends. Lovely dining room , great decor, up on the second floor of the hotel, great lighting / booths. Food was fresh and flavoursome and cooked beautifully. Service was friendly and not invasive. We were left on the table for the whole evening from a 7:30pm booking, which is rare these days in London where second sittings are often the norm.
Only down-side is the toilets are in the basement 2 floors down (but though there are lifts) There is a cosy bar in the space next door.

Great decor, calm ambiance in the midst of busy Kings Cross, and truly fantastic service - friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Went for a Sunday roast, which was delicious overall although the vegetables were rather bland and poorly presented. The plum and spilt milk dessert was fantastic - a must order!
