“A superb, airy restaurant – comfortable and relaxed” – is the general view on this three-year-old from Richard Caring’s Ivy Collection group, which occupies “a beautiful setting” in revamped King’s Cross. There is a more downbeat alternative, though, suggesting it’s “rather trading on its name” with its “functional” menu of “bistro favourites”.

“Very flashy decor” – and (it is claimed) ‘the largest al fresco dining terrace in north London’ – help entice diners to this “busy and buzzy” King’s Cross yearling from Richard Caring’s Ivy Collection, and sharing all the ‘affordable glam’ design ethos of the group. Everyone finds it an agreeably “lively place” but beyond that views are sharply divided: and whereas fans report “good quality brasserie food at all times of day”, critics dismiss “ordinary” food and “uninterested service” that’s “not up to their pretentions” or the “ambitious prices”.

“The fantastic decor and impressive bar greet guests with a ‘WOW’” at The Ivy Collection’s new opening on the former site of Bruno Loubet’s Grain Store (RIP), which also boasts a bar and al-fresco dining terrace. “Unfortunately all this does not translate to the average food offerings” which live up to the DNA of Richard Caring’s ever-expanding stable.
