Description: 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.

The menu is fascinating and diverse, the surroundings are grand but not intimidating, the service is as perfect as you could wish without being fussy. You must take your time in selecting your meal. You may find some dishes too rich for your taste, but don't be put off by unusual combinations. All are very fine, very original and reward close study and careful selection - don't hesitate to ask the waiter for advice. The room is astounding and the atmosphere is relaxed and casual. There is a splendid bar adjacent inside the complex's own entrance . The prices are reasonable and the value is excellent. Marcus Wareing has a triumph on his hands in keeping with the beautifully renovated and historic St Pancras Hotel in which the restaurant and bar are located.

The first thing you notice when you walk in is the amazing bar with the bell chandeliers. The bar staff are wonderful and make you feel very comfortable. The popcorn with pork smoke was great to nibble on. Food was very good too and the main dining room had a great vibe about it. Well worth a visit.

Sir George Gilbert Scott was the original architect of the fabulous St Pancras Station. The restaurant bearing his name together with the bar and coffee room have been restored to the original splendour. Marcus Wareing runs the restaurant and we had a celebratory lunch which went on and on. So much so we were the last table occupied in the restaurant long after lunch had ended. We were not hurried away even to the coffee lounge, instead we felt quite comfortable while the staff brought us the (lost count) coffees. This restaurant is not actually anything special but you feel special being in the building. The staff were very attentive and the food excellent. The only criticism I might have is that the tables are very close together so be prepared to join in with other people's conversations. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Don't you dare leave without viewing the awesome original staircase and the floors leading from the restaurant have drinks in the original booking hall and go again for tea in the foyer.

Drinks from the bar were £16.80 for two with no olives etc. The tables were very close together... no chance of intimate conversations! The price of a bottle of Peroni was scandalous (£5). The wine was good but £38 for a St Veran was a pricey markup. No amuses bouche and vegetables cost extra (£3.50 for spinach, £4 for George's chips) which is a bit cheapskating. The food was quite reasonable but by no means outstanding. Coffee came without so much as a petit four or any other sweetmeat. The waitress had no idea whether there was an Armagnac on the brandy list and the one she thought was Armagnac was both miss-spelled and not an Armagnac. The service was generally good but the experience was underwhelming. Total cost £171. Ouch!

We went to celebrate a birthday at midday as the evening was not possible for us. The dining room is fine, grand as you'd expect from a great terminus of a station. The food was enjoyable & we all wanted to try new dishes.
The service was good, apart from the wine waiter who forgot an order & had to be reminded.
The tables are too close together in some parts of the restaurant, but there is space just needs a little more thought.
Overall expensive but probably worth it
