Marcus Wareing’s The Gilbert Scott is a magnificent bar and brasserie showcasing nostalgic British cuisine. Bespoke cocktails are served under ornate ceilings and bell chandeliers in the sumptuous bar.
A hidden treasure in London, The Gilbert Scott Kings Cross has a striking dining room with limestone pillars, lofty ceilings and sophisticated maroon leather furnishings. Fine dining can be experienced in the grand arc-shaped restaurant, and the sommelier team will guide you through the eclectic wine list. The private dining room is perfect for larger groups, while the Kitchen Table is close to the lively buzz of the kitchen. These bespoke events can be arranged by contacting The Gilbert Scott Restaurant directly.
Paying tribute to historical, traditional dishes, The Gilbert Scott menu features innovations like Kentish pigeon in a pot with thyme and prunes or lemon sole, vermouth cream and Morecambe Bay shrimps. Quirky and fun, the desserts include Kendal mint cake choc ice, Mrs. Beeton’s snow eggs or orange marmalade Jaffa Cake with Earl Grey tea ice cream.
Inventive British classics are found in abundance at The Gilbert Scott restaurant, housed in the elegant St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. Kings Cross Station is just a 2-minute walk away.

Customer reviews for The Gilbert Scott Restaurant
(**** 3 May 2016 by David Atkinson from London Borough of Islington
Very poor service and not a nice meal - therefore far too expensive. We had no idea who was looking after us. We had to ask for the bar drinks menu four times before it came. Three of us had the same starter - two arrived but we waited so long for the third we thought it had been forgotten. We saw the waitress who brought the two starters go and do other things and then serve at another table - eventually someone else came with the third starter. Two of us had a piece of meat that was stringy and tasteless - a sauce would have made it more edible. My wife and I have enjoyed eating at the Gilbert Scott several times in the past without complaint. This time we went with friends who had never been before. We all decided we would not go again. On leaving, my wife had a word with someone at the door about the service etc. She said she felt the staff were nice but that the manager was not managing the staff properly. He said someone would call the following day - no-one rang.

Very expensive for very average food. Booked because Marcus Wareing is supposed to be the executive chef, I'm wondering what that entails. Food not sufficiently warm, but served a half bottle (carafe) of Chabis by the sommelier that was warm, not good enough for a so called fine dining restaurant. This was replaced when I complained. Main dises were over seasoned, with too much salt. No garnish on the starters, one of which was served in a mini jam jar, which made it difficult to get the underset pate out of it. Desert also served in a mini jam jar type of utensil. Desert of strawberries and pannacota was not good. Very disappointed to spend £186 on a meal for two ( this included a cocktail each and wine) that was less than average. As this was a Marcus Waring restaurant I didn't check reviews before I booked, which was a big mistake. We won't be going again.

Very much enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant. Service was good, food was great.
I strongly object to a cover charge being added to the bill, particularly as our bill for 2 was close to £250... it seems mean and cherish.
I objected to this £4.00 and it was taken off.....our so I thought...this morning I was reviewing the bill to find that I had been charged for an Orange Juice that we did not have, which strangely was charged at £4.00!
Although this is a small amount...it appears a little dishonest....and I am irritated by it.

We loved the restaurant itself, the food was delicious especially the bbq pork tenderloin and the service was good. The 1873 cocktail was excellent.
Our only reservations which spoiled the deal a bit were that the 1873 was the only cocktail, the main courses didn't come with potatoes so the chips at £4 each added to the cost but also that there is a two pound per person cover charge to maintain the historic building. On top of an optional 12.5% service charge the deal doesn't seem so sweet.
Having said that it was a great experience

Really enjoyed my visit

We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. All the food was exquisite. The only (very small) observation was that the wine paired with the trout on the tasting menu was a bit 'watery'.

The food was excellent. The plaice was particularly good.

Magnificent venue, excellent service, good fine dining experience in a stunning building part of the St Pancras Station Hotel. We went for the £29 set menu, chose different dishes for all three courses and both thoroughly enjoyed our choices. Bread was £2 per head extra under the item 'cover charge', drinks were quite expensive (e.g. G&T was £13) and we had iced tap water which was free, and there was an automatically added 12.5% service charge. So our expected £58 bill came to over £100. But it was a great evening which we thoroughly enjoyed. Live piano player most of the evening - which some might enjoy and others find distracting. I have hearing aids so it was not so easy to listen to my wife's conversation while he was playing.
