Central Station


This bright and buzzy gay-friendly restaurant in King's Cross is loved by locals for its down-to-earth atmosphere, chilled ambience and brilliant British menu. Suitable for business dining, dates and after-work drinks-and-dancing, Central Station Bar and Restaurant is a great local pub with an Islington vibe and a killer roof terrace for summertime sessions. The first-floor restaurant is light and airy and decorated with lilac banquettes and chic dove grey and white wallpaper, and star dishes at Central Station include the salmon and smoked haddock fishcakes with mango salsa, salad and rice; the summertime tagliatelle with pinenuts, Parmesan cheese and parsley; and the lamb burger served with hand-cut chips, salad and relish.

Central Station is not the classiest of establishments.

I'm sure it has a very loyal, local clientèle, but I'm afraid I won't be back.
