Great little casual café/restaurant in-between Euston and Kings Cross stations. Very good freshly made burgers and fries with excellent service thrown in.

VOC Bar.Cocktails.Grill is set in a hidden courtyard just seconds from the bustle of King’s Cross and St Pancras stations. Unique cocktails, hearty grill dishes and a homely, speakeasy-style feel have made VOC a popular city-centre haven since launching in 2009.

Irresistible burgers and steaks lead the VOC menu. Served with chips, discover the ‘Old Smokey’ burger, made from dry-aged Scottish beef with smoked cheese, mayonnaise and salad, or for a vegetarian alternative try the mixed bean falafel pattie in a brioche bun with hummus. From 21-day aged Scottish Highland beef, rib eye, sirloin and fillet steaks are served with a choice of barbecue, blue cheese, peppercorn, or wild mushroom sauce.

The drinks selection at VOC Bar King’s Cross is just as enticing, pairing an impressive range of craft beers with expertly crafted cocktails. Stand-out concoctions include the Boston Flip, which includes bourbon whisked with Madeira wine, black treacle and a hint of absinthe, all emulsified with a whole egg and dusted with cocoa.

Tucked away behind King’s Cross Station, VOC Bar London has an enviable location which puts the whole of the city within easy reach.

    Service was good but the food was of poor quality - chicken overcooked (chalky texture) and a lot of the portions were meagre - 4 squares of potato for £6, little shreds of duck for around £7.

    As a 20 year old there are very few things I'm unable to do in life, entering your bar however, was one of them. When trying to make a good impression on a date, being refused entry to a bar actually turned out to do a pretty fair job none the less I will not be so keen to come in the future. I'm not a student and was just looking for a good place to sink a few cold ones on a Friday pm, you instead lost out on income and repeat custom.

    Lovely restaurant, nice décor etc. Appealing menu, T Bone - best steak ever :) Good choice of wine, vegetable side dishes really different and tasty, service really good, lovely friendly waitress. Would certainly dine here again when in London. A little hard to find being down the alleyway, we did walk straight past initially!

    I really enjoyed our evening at VOC bar and restaurant. We spent a few hours in the bar, the atmosphere, cocktails and service was amazing. Thanks especially to Ben who works in the bar, he is an absolute star!

    The food at the restaurant at was lovely, the patatas bravas and garlic prawns were my favourites. I will definitely visit again and have already recommended to friends. Thanks for a fabulous evening!

    Nice venue, very convenient for Kings Cross/St Pancreas Stations. Pleasant staff. I thought the lunchtime special menu was limited in choice. The a la carte was not really to my taste & I thought a little pricey, but the hake I had was good. I was very pleased and surprised to find that our bottle of prosecco was half price as their Monday lunch offer.

    The steak was cooked really well and tasted nice. The waitress was really kind.

    The food was good, the service was excellent. Not overly priced. However, there wasn't as much atmosphere as I had expected. Overall it was a lovely was to spend dinner with friends.

    Service and food was amazing as expected. Loved the décor and ambience however the star of the night was definitely the cocktails which we are still talking about. Thank you to the staff.

    Had a very enjoyable meal with family in this lovely cocktail bar/ restaurant. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was great too. The menu is mainly burgers and steaks what some salads and vegetarian options but all fresh and well presented. it was a little difficult to find down a small alley off Caledonian Road but well worth it. Will certainly be going back
