Who we are

Smithy’s is a family run restaurant and wine bar with great character from its past. More than a century ago the building housed the stables of the giant shire horses that used to pull the omnibuses on London’s streets. We’ve kept many of the original features and have added some modern touches which give Smithy’s its unique charm.

Our fantastic chef Memo has created a modern European menu which changes almost daily according to availability of local produce and seasonal variations, so there is always something new to try. Accompany this with a wide range of carefully selected wines, great lagers, real ales and local craft beers on tap and you have an idea of why our regulars refer to us as ‘the best kept secret in King’s Cross’.




Alongside our extensive wine list and drinks selection, including local craft beers, we offer a wide range of food choices to suit all tastes. Our experienced chef works hard to combine French flavours with great British produce that you can enjoy in a relaxed and unassuming setting.


Whether you want a quick snack at our bar, a three-course sit down meal in our restaurant or a catered event or party, our classic British and European menu is constantly changing, incorporating the best seasonal products and the finest, freshest ingredients.


Something new and a little bit different

We pride ourselves on our wine list and have gone to great lengths to devise a wine menu that covers extensive geographical regions and grape varieties. We work closely with Les Caves de Pyrene, our suppliers, who scour the globe for the best wine varieties often sourced from small vineyards untapped by the rest of the commercial wine market. The result is a fantastic selection of wines ranging in flavour and price so that you can find the perfect tipple to accompany your meal or just to enjoy alone.

We also carry a wide selection of wines that represent a snapshot of an exciting movement. Our new organic, biodynamic wines are produced using natural methods of farming and winemaking to create wines of beauty that at their heart offer simple purity of fruit.
