A couple of weeks ago I popped to London to meet up with a dear school friend who was in the UK for just a couple of days, passing through.
We met at Plum + Spilt Milk in King’s Cross for a lovely fish lunch, cocktails and a good old catch up. The name of this place intrigued me, and after some digging on the P+SM website I found this little explanation:
“What’s In A Name?
The name of this restaurant refers to the nickname for the original LNWR Dining Car No 5159, the oldest dining car in the world, painted in the railway’s livery colours, the evocatively named Plum and Spilt Milk.”
Located on the first floor of the Great Northern Hotel, Plum + Spilt Milk is trendy, but business like, stylish but classic, a perfect combination. I plumped for a ‘King’s Garden’ drink wise. A delicious mixture of cucumber, mint, lemongrass, gin and apple juice.
Food wise, we both opted for fish, Hake for me and whole Seabass for Y.
The fish was, as it looks, delicious and the service was wonderful. Plum + Spilt Milk is within spitting distance of King’s Cross station, making it the perfect destination for lunch before or after your travels. Even better, they have a 45 minute menu meaning you needn’t be late for your train!
Although we didn’t need the 45 minute menu as we weren’t rushing, we were a little tight on time, so opted out of starters and desserts. However I will definitely be going back to Plum + Spilt Milk to indulge in more of what they have to offer, hopefully on the way to the continent!
