Rotunda Bar & Restaurant
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This King's Cross bar and restaurant has a cracking location when sunshine hits in summer. Sure, its addresses says traffic-heavy York Way but Rotunda's real plus comes from its view out back, of the bobbing barges and boats of Regent's Canal. There's usually a cute little garden set up on the terrace, too.
The food is focused on British produce, but with influence from across Europe. Expect dishes such as texel lamb with black cabbage, shallot and anchovy dressing, grilled baby chicken with smoked parsnip and turmeric purée and chocolate and almond lava cake with cherry compote. The spot has a farm-to-fork ethos, with their very own farm in Northumberland supplying both their lamb and beef directly.
The drinks list includes seasonal cocktails, beers from Camden Town Brewery, Pressure Drop, Beavertown, Five Points and Brewdog, and a wine list with an old world slant.
Following an extensive refurbishment in summer 2018, the new look Rotunda restaurant features an open view kitchen, exclusive chef's counter dining and meat ageing cabinet. The bar has also been extended with a new semi-enclosed covered area.
Enjoy seasonal, modern-British food with all the beef and lamb sourced from its own farm in Northumberland, hung for 32 days in the onsite hanging room and finally butchered by the in house butcher.
A real 'farm-to-fork' ethos. Finally, there's an impressive selection of craft beers, wines and seasonal cocktails.
