Square Meal Review of Plum + Spilt Milk ?

Lodged within the lavishly refurbished Great Northern Hotel, Plum + Spilt Milk takes its name from the distinctive colours of the first-class dining cars once pulled by The Flying Scotsman. It’s a ‘yesteryear venue’ with a heritage name and ‘quixotic decor’, but the kitchen delivers ‘confidently egalitarian’ British food courtesy of former Gordon Ramsay deputy and man of Kent Mark Sargeant. Starters of Folkestone whelks, potted shrimps or ‘thrillingly creamy’ smoked-haddock soufflé strike a seaside pose, while mains bring perfectly seasoned steak tartare, wholesome lamb-shank hotpot and various items from the high-tech grill (ginormous loin of pork with spiced apple chutney or deboned ‘Jacob’s ladder’ beef ribs, say). For afters, baked Alaska and Kentish gypsy tart are good shouts. The adjoining bar sports a mega drinks list, while ‘sassy, clued-up service’ chimes well with the classy interiors.

    ytTastes :: Plum & Spilt Milk at the Great Northern Hotel

    My late night visit to Kings Cross one Friday evening reminded me that I had yet to visit and check out the Great Northern Hotel. So when my friend whom I hadn’t seen in a while suggested meeting up, I checked to see if there was a restaurant or bar on the offering at the hotel since it was an ideal meeting point for the both of us – both of which exists, the bar, GNH Bar, and the restaurant, Plum & Spilt Milk. Not having read much about it, but the words on the website caught my eye “Elegant yet relaxed…” this was what we needed! So reservations made, and I looked forward to my first outing after a bout of illness.,,
