Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Set in the tangle of unpromising streets behind King’s Cross, the Driver is a stylish gastropub, with a ‘vertical garden’ and a decked roof terrace, complemented by three more floors of dining and drinking space, above a street-level bar and restaurant of equally interesting design.

There you can sip a San Miguel, Blue Moon or St Austell Tribute beneath a reindeer head in the loungey area by the fireplace or at the bar, itself hewn out of a jagged tree trunk.

The tables are for diners (seared kangaroo rump, grilled skate wing), while drinkers can partake of cocktails such as the house mojito with a dash of Frangelico. Wines start at £4.40/£15 and run up to a Château Haut-Bages Averoux at £70.
