My mom and I were looking for a pub near our rented flat near King's Cross. The Drive had some good reviews and looked interesting. We ordered the £13 fish & chips and the £11 beetroot, butternut squash, peppadew pepper risotto. The fish & chips were great, but the risotto was AMAZING. I am not a fan of peppers in general, but these peppers were stuffed with goat cheese and mixed in with...more

I've been a few times, and mostly to catch the rooftop patio. It's up several flights of stairs, and fairly walled in (not that there's much scenery to be had around King's Cross). The drink selection is fairly standard, and they didn't have a bar set up at the roof when I went so it was a bit of a trek for drinks. But feel free to check it out if you want some elevation with your libations.more

What a lovely restaurant, Staff fantastic, food yum, just needs attention to detail.

They offer a nice drink selection, from which the Merlot is my favorite.more

What a lovely surprise!

My friend and I were wandering around Kings cross (waiting for another friend, who was planning to have a drink with us before jumping on a train to the North.) I had never heard of this pub, and we only came here because I have just received a tastecard through the post, so was keen to see what kind of venues were listed on the tastecard app.

I called as we walked up...more
