Rotunda is a hidden gem that boasts beautiful canal-side views located in core of King's Cross. A modern British bar, restaurant and private dining room with a large astro-turfed waterside terrace, serving an à la carte menu, weekend brunch, homemade bar food, expertly-created cocktails, handpicked craft beers, and extensive wines.

Guests can dine or drink on the terrace which sits on Regent's Canal. The open kitchen means you can watch the chefs at work. Meanwhile, menus showcase beef and lamb that are sourced exclusively from the restaurant's very own farm in Northumberland, alongside a healthy balance of fresh fish, vegetarian and vegan options. 

The private dining room is an impressive place to meet or entertain with a choice of styled menus. Suited for all seasons, the private dining room is paired with a private terrace, the perfect spot for a summer BBQ event.

Rotunda boasts a covered area of the terrace, complete with blankets - perfect for alfresco socialising.

  • A word from the chef:

    Our dedication to food starts in the green fields of our Corneyside Farm in Matfen, Northumberland. Born and bred on the farm, this is where we source all the Limousin X beef and Texel lamb featured on the menu. It is dry-aged, hung and butchered on-site. We are very proud to serve our meat alongside fresh, day boat caught fish and a number of plant-based, vegetable and vegan dishes. The open kitchen means you can watch the chefs at work - grab a seat at the counter dining and they might even give you some tasters!
