I was nervous seeking a quick bite in a pub in a railway station, but really this is part of the St Pancras Hotel, and it's standards are excellent, good service, and a great coronation Chicken sandwich. (Easily the best coronation chicken sandwich I have ever had, on lightly toasted brown bread, which was fresh and with a little malt... More

Oh dear! Was here for dinner with friends. Had goats cheese with mushrooms and lentils. Took me a while to realise that what I had assumed was a clear broth was, in fact, just oil. Not flavoured, just 4-5 tablespoons of colourless clear oil. Horrible. I called the waitress over, who apologised and got me a cup of tea. When... More

Another really busy and active place with a good, lively atmosphere. Crowded usually, especially round the rather small bar, it can be quite difficult to find a seat, especially in the main bar room. There is a smaller, very cosy room and a dining room plus extra seating outside, on the station concourse. The burgers are especially good.

Nice location in the corner at St Pancras station. I little pricey , but you'd expect to pay a premium at this location. The food was good, but because the place was busy, we sat outside the main area (on the station concourse). Good for people watching, but crikey it was cold - there were a couple of patio heaters...

We arrived and ordered our drinks right away as in a rush. A simple Orange & Lemonade( I rather liked the glass it was in! ) hit the spot whilst my mother loved her betjeman shandy. The food took longer than l wanted but the wait certainly paid off i ordered a burger and chips which i would certainly recommend.... More

Following the recent refurb the Station pub has taken on a new lease of life. It feels like a pub you go for a night out in rather than a soulless transient waiting room where you begrudgingly enter whilst waiting for the train. Great range of beers, excellent décor and amazing food all on the doorstep of the best looking... More

Pub with a buzz, but if you want to actually talk to your company and hear them, head for one of the back dining rooms. Tables provide some elbow room and the meal is as leisurely as you wish. And the food is quite good. I had a fish special that was delightfully seasoned with a sauce of cherry tomatoes... More

The Betjeman Arms is very convenient for anyone working in the British Library, and over the years it has provided me with many enjoyable and reasonably-priced meals. But alongside the recent refurbishment there seems to have been a transformation in the kitchen. A colleague and I had lunch there recently and the menu itself is quite different, the only down...

Great place to await for arriving friends or before jumping on a train out of London. Nice new design since we were last in.

Visited the place on Friday night with a friend. very good selection of beers. Although quite busy service was great and we were served fast and in turn. Everything seemed to run smoothly and great atmosphere. quite nice decor after the renovation. will definitely come back here. didn't have any food but overall good feel. I would say that this...
