Location and contact

Great British dining is executed perfectly at Marcus Wareing's The Gilbert Scott with a menu featuring British produce cooked to perfection. The beautifully grand Gilbert Scott bar presents fine bespoke cocktails and an imaginative wine list. There is a private dining room for large parties and the Kitchen Table is perfect for an extravagant meal, close to the lively hub of the kitchen.

I booked the three courses and a cocktail for £30.00 as I thought this was really good value. I didn’t therefore really expect to spend £125.00 for two. Everything else was extra - bread £4, sides average £5 (the mains came with nothing) and some...More

I would much rather have paid more money and/or had the cocktail deleted than to have such stripped back food on my plate. It was beautifully prepared, but the limitations on the chef were obvious -- an example -- the dessert choices were underwhelming: grapefruit...More

I just took my 9 years old girl. They do have a kids menu. My daughter had "brilliant meatballs" and mac&cheese with truffles. The staff took care of her and she felt like a princess
