Bar + Block New Spring Menu 2018 | Kings Cross*

 

A few weeks ago, Darcy and I treated her Dad to a Father's Day meal. I have spoken before how I feel it is really important for us to do things as a family even though we are no longer together, and this was the perfect opportunity to send some family time. 

We were given the opportunity to review the new Spring Menu at the Bar & Block Steakhouse in Kings Cross Which is a great after work location; meet up with girlfriends,  date night or for a bite to eat before you jump on the Eurostar which is only a 10 minute walk away from St Pancras station.  


The cocktail menu is fab, I had to try a pop corn martini. They also have a candy floss martini which I will definitely be getting next time. Even better Bar & Block have half price cocktails Monday to Thursday between 5 - 7pm!! 


We sat in a little booth where we could admire the hustle and bustle of the kitchen, whilst munching on beef flavoured popcorn. Which they need to start selling by the bag.  

 As a parent, I always worry if restaurants are accommodating to children. However, I did not need to worry as they were more than welcoming with kids colouring and crayons and a perfect children’s menu too! There is plenty to pick from and for only £6.50 you can choose from Veggie Sticks, a Main and Dessert  and a choice of either apple or orange juice. 

Darcy picked steak, which I was a bit nervous about as she had it before. But I had no need to worry as she woofed it all down. 



As Bar and Block is a steak house and I am now a Pescatarian I did wonder what options there would be for me. But I was spoilt for choice.  For starters we had Atlantic scallops, which melted in the mouth and crispy salt and pepper squid which were so tender and not greasy at all. 


Our lovely waitress suggested we tried St Clair Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. I'm no wine expert but it was lovely, refreshing with a peach edge to it. 



 For main I went for hot-smoked salmon, which came with potatoes, peas, asparagus, green beans and rocket. Although it was a light meal it was very filling. T went for the Butcher's Block, 10oz Picanha Steak topped with Chimichurri sauce served with chips and a side salad.


We just had enough space for pudding, Darcy had ice cream. I went for the Lemon and Clementine cheesecake which was lovely. T doesn't have a sweet tooth so opted for cheese block which includes Cheddar, Brie and Stilton served with toasted bread, apple slices and honey. They were out of Brie so offered him a different cheese of his choice 

All in all, it’s a great place for drinks with the girls or for lovely lunch spot with the family. 

Have you been yet? What did you think?

  2. Having been away for so long, I couldn't believe how much Kings Cross has changed recently, it looks amazing, and this place looks like a great addition! Love the look of that calamari especially. Would love to visit for a candy floss martini alone! :D

  8. It’s really nice to see restaurants accommodating families more. It’s my biggest worry when going out to eat and that usually means we stick to what we know. I like how much choice was available to you for your dietary needs. The cheesecake sounds so refreshing and light.

  10. It sounds like they catered well for your daughter. Colouring while you are waiting for food is great, isn't it? And well done for continuing to include her Dad in things - it can't always be easy.
