LONDON | The Drake & Morgan Collection are one of the head honchos in London’s hospitality game. With an impressive portfolio of restaurant and bars across the city, such as The Anthologist, The Folly and The Bothy, the restaurant group has swiftly become a staple for London foodies when it comes to finding the perfect culinary escape. We headed over to the flagship Drake and Morgan restaurant nestled within the newly developed creative and business development in Kings Cross Square.

The spacious multi-floor bar and restaurant is framed with oversized windows with an elegant interior. Both the restaurant and bar are moodily lit, fitted with plush leather couches and Instagram ready settings. With neighbours including Google and Universal Music, the clientele is predominantly corporate with a busy Thursday evening seeing the restaurant occupied with merry city workers and groups of young professionals having a good time against the faint backdrop of chart music.

The ‘All Day Menu’ menu is simple and carefully constructed. A reflection of modern British dining cuisine with central European, British, Asian and even Caribbean influences including dishes such as the Charcuterie Board, House Greek salad, Pearl Barley Risotto, Thai Green Coconut Curry, Half Jerk Chicken and of course, Fish & Chips. An jam-packed drinks menu includes mocktails, wines, sour shots, champagne and cocktails. Upon scanning the menu, we decided to kick off with a refreshing zingy crafted ‘Red means stop’ mocktail (or as Drake & Morgan call them, ‘Abstainers’), along with crispy squid and ham croquettes.

The crispy squid and ham croquettes arrived piping hot, served in pretty quaint bowls. Golden and fried to perfection, the crispy squid was tasty with the perfect chewy, bouncy texture. The winning starter was the ham croquettes, creamy meaty on the inside covered with a delicately crunchy breadcrumb outer layer. Deciding on an overall star dish, once we reached mains, was easy – the gloriously meaty tender chunky lamb chops served with a generous spoonful of greens. The tangy mint sauce made for a pleasantly sharp complement making all parts of the dish blend beautifully. The grilled sea bass with bok choy and charred lemons were incredibly rich with a smoky edge. Both dishes were complemented with sides of crispy and fresh large onion rings and steamed broccoli scattered with almonds which added some extra roughage to the gluttonous mix.

We couldn’t resist dessert so we gave in and opted for the creamy vanilla and cinnamon panna cotta with Anzac biscuit, dusted with cinnamon and a medium sized chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream. The pannacotta was a nondescript dessert, though the brownie was smooth, doughy and chocolatey.

All up, we paid around £45 a head for astarter, side, main, drink and dessert, which we think was quite reasonable. Unlike many branches of hospitality groups, which can all look a bit sameish Drake and Morgan stands out as having its own identity. The restaurant is specifically made for the city dwellers who appreciate fine dining at an affordable price with plush aesthetics. It’s a classy space for creatives and colleagues to hang out, with charming service, quirky cocktails, fresh, innovative, hearty food and warm atmosphere. It’s worth a visit, even if just for those lamb chops!
