Set in a Grade I listed building, The Parcel Yard at King's Cross raises the bar for station pub food. It has two floors that still showcase original features. Chef Rachid Messaoudi aims to challenge the perception of traditional pub food by serving top-class British favourites made from fresh and fine ingredients. From your traditional London Pride Battered Cod and Chips to a more fancy Goat's Cheese, Leek and Artichoke Tart, this is a menu that will serve everyone! The Parcel Yard offers hearty meals for those looking for something wholesome, but also has the option for lighter bites such as burgers and sandwiches. If you have time for a sweet before the show, there is a delicious dessert menu that will cater to everyone. Lovers of beer will find a huge variety of new beers on tap, including London Pride, Red Fox and Black Cab amongst many others.
