en years ago it was a lone bastion of quality dining in the yet-to-be-developed wilds of King’s Cross. Now exactly a decade on, the successful Rotunda closed on Friday for a £1.5m summer refit.

The informal modern British restaurant has been a key part of the trailblazing King’s Place development since the begining, offering beef and lamb from its own farm in Northumberland, all hung, aged and butchered on-site.

It was one of the first ‘next generation’ arrivals in the area and its redesign will allow an open-to view kitchen, a large meat-ageing cabinet in the restaurant, a chef’s counter, and a semi-enclosed waterside garden terrace with heaters, so that it’s possible to enjoy dining alfresco all year round. Sounds awesome.

Meanwhile the terrace garden, which is tended by King’s Cross-based charity Global Generation who run the lovely Skip Garden, is also getting an upgrade too.

Alongside Rotunda, the Kings Place Battlebridge function room and the Green & Fortune Café are also being spruced up ahead of the forthcoming 10th anniversary celebrations for this iconic multi-use arts building.

And don’t fret if you’re a fan of canalside drinks, Rotunda will be running a pop-up bar throughout the refub period, just check their twitter for the deets.
