Kings Cross eatery

Coming down to London for a visit in early August. My husband, son and father in law are going to the emirates for a match and myself, daughter and mother in law are going to do some mooching! My father in law is not in the best of health and can't walk far. We would like to spend some time relaxing and eating late morning early lunchtime. Somewhere near kings cross so he doesn't gave to walk far. Cheap/mid price range. Also two teenage children with us. Really stuck as to what to do... Help appreciated!

The area behind Kings Cross & St Pancras stations is really changing with the new Kings Place and a number of pop up restaurants on the land behind the two stations.Not sure what would be open on a weekend.

St Pancras station itself is worth a mooch and all the "fancy" new mini chains such as Peyton & Byrne and Benugo have opened outlets - http://www.kingscross.co.uk/retail-kerb

Caution:

Although the web sites say Kerb operates "every day", I've never found it operating on Sats or Suns, when I imagine your match at the Emirates is on, though I understand there are stalls operating on the third Sat of every month. I also doubt its suitability under any circs for someone "who can't walk far" - or for most parties of six.

Though the area is booming, an awful lot of the new stuff - including many of the eating places in St P station - is a considerable walk from the joint KX/St P tube station, and there really is no alternative way of getting to them.

For somewhere six people can sit together, talk and feel comfortable about the FIL, this really isn't as good an area as you might imagine. The Gilbert Scott inside St P meets that brief, but is probably way outside most people's budget.

I'm highly underwhelmed by the food at Kitchin in Caledonia St - but if FIL can make it that far (it's a schlep from the tube, but it's cabbable from other places), it meets the functional parts of the brief and isn't going to kill, bore or bankrupt you.

The other option if FIL really can't walk any great distance is the Parcel Yard pub in the station itself -
