Drake and Morgan
London-North and Northwest London
May 11, 2018
The flagship King’s Cross branch of the London bar franchise is huge but stylish and attractively designed – it makes the best of the space: contemporary large and light with different areas in which to kick back with an after-work drink. There are two bars, a dining room and an open kitchen. There’s a decent cocktail list, catering to all tastes, and all of their wines are offered by the glass as well as the bottle. Try the Doctor’s Orders, a blend of Kamm & Sons, smoky mezcal, honey water, ginger and lemon. The Smokin’ Mary made with chili vodka is another hit, and we like the sound of the Brewin’ Up which pairs gin with tea cordial. The food menu is also well constructed, offering light bites and more substantial dishes including various tasty grilled things, lobster mac’n’cheese, blackened cauliflower (very on-trend) and a soft shell crab burger which sounds all kinds of delicious. They also do a cracking brunch.
