At the foot of the King’s Place arts centre – a “lovely space overlooking water” with a glorious canal-side terrace – Green & Fortune’s stylish venue offers a “good selection of small plates and excellent, if pricey, beef and lamb” from its own farm in Northumberland. “The pre-concert set menu is super value, but best of all is the Sunday roast lunch”.

Development after development is emerging around King’s Cross, so it’s easy to forget this early arrival, by Regent’s Canal, at the foot of the Kings Place art centre. Run by top figures in ‘the Murphia’ (Green & Fortune’s John Nugent alongside the building’s owner Peter Millican) its top culinary attraction is beef sourced from its own dedicated Northumberland farm. In summer, enjoy the huge outside terrace by the water.

A “great location on a quiet stretch of the Regent’s Canal” – which runs past the King’s Place arts centre – is one selling point of this modern British restaurant, which is on the ground floor of the complex. With beef and lamb from its own farm in Northumberland, it is “definitely a place for the serious meat eater”. There’s a feeling, though, that “the Rotunda has never quite reached its potential, despite years of trying”. Top Tip: “be warned: if you choose a canalside table and it rains, you’ll be handed an umbrella”.

A “great setting” next to the Regent’s Canal, with a large and attractive terrace that comes into its own during the summer months, isn’t the only feature that raises this bar/dining room to being a destination rather than merely an arts-centre amenity – “its farm-to-plate ethos is something special” too, with a dedicated Northumberland farm providing all beef and lamb (hung onsite in their own hanging room, and with an in-house butcher). A recent refurb has added an open kitchen and large meat-aging cabinets on view.
