I've booked the place for a hen do and have been quite disappointed by the overall experience. The music was extremely loud, which meant we could barely hear ourselves. The food itself was quite average - the sandwiches are just a huge loaf of bread with very little actual food in it. For the actual activity I was negatively surprise... More

Booked a table for birthday drinks and nibbles in the upstairs area. Music was super loud and sound system was terrible. They moved us to the entrance area. We could finally hear each other but table was small for 10 people. Anyway, we were very happy they could change this change last minute and the lady working there was lovely... More

The first time I visited was in 2012, and during my last visit a few days ago I noticed they removed the "shop" portion. I think it's still very cute, I like the colorful decor. I ordered a small sandwich, cake, and hot chocolate, all of which was good. I sat in the entrance area, but the area upstairs was... More

There are so many flies in this cafe - including right at the back where I was sitting. I mentioned these to a staff member who seemed unconcerned and said 'oh, I'm surprised you have them at the back as well, we do struggle with them in the summer.' It is only ten degrees - and I visited here a... More

This quiz was wand-erful!!! And the whole experience of Drink Shop Do was spell-facular - we can't recommend it enough. The staff were friendlier than Pygmy Puff and sweeter than Fred and George's whizzing whizbees. The guy hosting the quiz was truly magical - hilarious, a Harry Potter nerd in the best sense of the word, and generally great fun.... More

I've been coming to Drink, Shop & Do for the past 4 years and I can honestly say it never gets old! When I first started coming I was at Uni and loved the house party vibe and fun events. Now I've grown up a bit and so has Drink, Shop and Do! They've recently been refurbished and the decor... More

I'm a regular visitor to Drink Shop & Do and have been for years. However, recently they've made some changes that have really brought the vibe down and changed the atmosphere. Firstly, they've got rid of food - you can only get a couple of nibbles - which is a shame as the food here was good. Secondly, they've scrapped... More

Drink, Shop & Do seems to have been taken over by new management this year - and the result is that a real fun, quirky place with lovely food and amazing cakes has been completely ruined. Everything that made this place a haven in King's Cross has been taken away leaving an atmosphere-free place, with seemingly no attention paid to... More

Hello "Iheartearth", We are sorry you were disappointed with your most recent visit to Drink, Shop & Do. We are not under new management, the company is still very much directed by the original founders. Drink, Shop & Do was born out of a creative dream and has evolved continually since its doors opened in 2009. You’re correct in seeing... More

This place always appealed to me. Drinking... check! Shopping...check! Doing...well I'm not sure what this meant but I'm a proactive person so I thought all sounds good. As a bar on a Saturday night I would say don't bother! I can't say what it's like any other time but if you're looking for a cool place to drink this is... More

This place is great - staff are always super friendly, and sort any issues out without fuss. I've been for boozy brunch a few times, which is great value for money, and also had a normal lunch their, which is also delicious. Setting is fun and quirky - although I've not yet got around to playing any of the games,... More
