Nice food in a great location. The restaurant is located in a little "Barbican" with its concert area and Guardians newspaper. It has a great view on the canal just next to it. Service was good and food was honnest.

Attentive and friendly staff, although a Friday evening not especially in the restaurant although bar was very busy. The Texel lamb rump was excellent, cooked to perfection as was the flat iron steak. Reasonably priced wine. Would certainly visit again

I assumed booking for 6pm at the same venue as the concert (7.30pm) would leave time enough for at least 2 courses- but no. We were shown quickly to the table, and food came reasonably quickly after being ordered, but everything in between let it down- even after the waiter had checked with us that we were going to the...

Hi there, I totally agree with your assumption and we pride ourselves on being able to deliver a 3 course meal in a timely fashion for all our pre-performance diners, and would absolutely agree that 90 minutes is ample time to do this. Whilst it would seem the seating and food delivery were both in a timely manner, I’m at... More

A modern restaurant and bar towards the rear of Kings Cross station. We were there for a works Christmas night out - a restrained affair. All of us had steaks - sirloin for two of us and a shared t-bone for the other two. All the food was of a high standard - excellent beef that was well cooked. The... More

Went for lunch with my wife on a Saturday. Initial impressions were good, although they were overly keen to get us into the restaurant rather than eat in the bar - when we checked the prices later we realised why! Service was good at first, drinks and menus arriving quickly, but it was downhill from there. We waited so long... More

Dear Nigel, Firstly I would like to apologise for replying so late, as with the festive period and holidays, I didn’t have an earlier chance. It seems not paying for the service charge was absolutely the right thing to do as based on your comments, I would agree that you didn’t receive the service that we strive for and I’m... More

We had lunch here, 3 generations of my family aged from 75 to 20. Lovely staff, lovely meal and such a fabulous location with comfortable outdoor seating areas, sadly we had to continue christmas shopping but I imagine it very difficult to want to leave in the summer months..... We will return.

Located at the back of KX station, this place could be ok if it was not for the crowd with literally hundreds of people standing and drinking at the bar and the food which was pricey and just about average. Service was really slow but staff ok. We really picked the wrong night couple of weeks before X'mas and most... More

A pleasant lunch with beef sourced from the owners farm. Unfortunately the drinks pricing is silly so lunch for two was £100. However it is an interesting experience and a great arts centre.

Although the service was good, what was served-up left much to be desired. £10.00 for miniscule cheese slices, a few tiny oatcakes, half a teaspoon of jam and thinnest slice of celery I have ever seen. There were a few grapes, but I'm not accustomed to having my wine in pill form!

We had a lovely evening, preceded by a workshop from Jake the master butcher, and followed by a 5 course dinner (or was it even 6?) with an excellent selection of wines. Many thanks to Sebastian!!
