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 counter dining also offers some of the best seats in the house as you watch the chefs at work in the open kitchen. 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.

Halloween: Brexit Special 

The scariest thirsty Thursday yet, Rotunda will be throwing a freaky farewell to the EU in pure Halloween style, which means fancy dress - with a prize of a 'Dinner For Two' for the best dressed. Live music will be playing in the bar alongside a chance for guests to win a deal or no deal with the EU Wheel Of Fortune, full of fun goodies to win! Don't let the scary season keep you from being well spirited. 

Nordic Circle 

This Christmas, Rotunda is inviting you to head North, taking inspiration from a Nordic Winter. Book the private dining room and embody the Scandi 'hygge' feeling for the perfect work Christmas party, with a selection of festive style seated menus. Keep cosy on the private terrace with heaters, blankets and a winter warmer cocktail.

For larger events, extend the party into the restaurant or consider turning the venue into a personal igloo with an exclusive hire for up to 250 guests.

Alternatively, keep a intimate by booking a table in the restaurant. 'Skål' to the chef's at work with the open view kitchen and enjoy the restaurant Christmas menu, four festive courses for £39.50.

Dog Friendly Bar

  • Cuisines

    This venue serves British, Bottomless Brunch, Bar Snacks and Grill food.

  • 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!

This Restaurant Does Top Veggie Roasts Right By The Water

This Restaurant Does Top Veggie Roasts Right By The Water

Rotunda’s riverside location has made it a hot ticket for grabbing a drink in King's Cross, especially for the Aperol-hungry crowds, but we weren't here for a spritz. Having heard the news of top roasts right by the water, and a menu made up of the best of Britain, we ignored the cracking of thunder…
