I had the roast beef on a Sunday and my wife had the roast lamb. Probably the best Sunday roast either of us have had in 3 years of living in London

We had a traditional roast dinner here one Sunday, and enjoyed it very much. The veg were cooked more than we prefer, but there were plenty of them and the flavor was good. Nice lamb roast for us, beef and chicken and salmon also available. The regular dinner menu looks more adventurous, but the traditional Sunday lunch roast was homely... More

I was staying near by so I thought I'd give this place a go, the plan was to have a pint with dinner and read up on the next stop on my trip. I ordered the Sunday roast which was wonderful, with a Yorkshire pudding that puts mine to shame. The staff were lovely and were up for a chat,... More

I read about the Harrison and decided to go for a walk and find it. It is a bit out of the way and I thought I might of gotten lost looking for it. Fortunately, I kept looking, and it was really worth it. I had the Pork Medallion which was jaw dropping good. I topped it off with an... More

I Googled 'Sunday lunch in Kings Cross' but it was the Trip Advisor that came up with The Harrison. Having read the reviews, I thought it was worth taking a chance. The pub restaurant is not set in the most elegant of streets but looks quite presentable on the corner of Harrison Street. We were not disappointed with the quality,... More

This is a local pub first, small and informal with a varied brew list (beer, ciders, stouts). It is also serves very high quality meals with an emphasis on locally grown/farmed ingredients. A little out of the way but so worth it!

The waiter was very nice and polite. We gave us a sample of haloumi cheese, since we've never had it before. It was perfect. The Harrison is a nice local restaurant with lovely meals at a very affordable price. Definitely recommend!!

We were staying close by and I had found this place on the internet. Hubby had the beef and I had the spinach and mushroom wellington, Both were well presented, hot and the veggies were lovely and fresh, Cost for each was about £11 and it was worth every penny. I don't think you'd be disappointed if you give it... More

We had had a great weekend at Twickenham (sadly Ireland were edged out of it 13-10) but it was now time to head back up North via St Pancras. My daughter was tasked with finding the family a place to have Sunday lunch before we went our separate ways. We have a saying in our family "We've dropped on here"... More

Met up with family for food while visiting London and the food here was fab. Staff really friendly and helpful as one of our party wanted something that was not on menu but the kitchen staff happily sorted it out. We all had different foods so quite happily tried each others. Would definitely recommend after a long day in London... More
