From Marcus Wareing, Gilbert Scott London showcases fine British produce in the illustrious surrounds of the 19th-century St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. The venue houses a spectacular grand dining room as well as an intimate cocktail bar.
Packed with rich British and European dishes, the Gilbert Scott menu begins with starters such as Dorset crab with smoked almond and pink grapefruit, and pigeon with prune and pistachio terrine. Follow this with Cornish brill with scallop and crab ravioli, Yorkshire lamb with salsa verde, or mushroom Wellington with kale and mushroom velouté. From the grill, sample the 25-day dry-aged Chateaubriand with grilled bone marrow and chips.
The Gilbert Scott bar serves up creative drinks in show-stopping, 19th-century surroundings. World wines are joined by house cocktails, including the Blackberry and Basil Royale, the Rhubarb and Ginger Sour, and The Herbalist, comprising thyme-infused gin, green Chartreuse, elderflower, lime and absinthe.
A truly British institution in an iconic setting, Gilbert Scott restaurant sits yards from the platforms at King’s Cross Rail Station.

Customer reviews for The Gilbert Scott
((((* 19 July 2018 by Joyce from London
Elegant, luxurious restaurant - we felt very special indeed. We had the 3 course deal. Attentive, professional and friendly staff who made me smile. I don’t normally drink chanpagne as it’s too dry for me but this was a perfect start to our evening. Quality of the food was excellent - I had the pigs head croquettes starter - delicious. All such a treat. I normally skip dessert but glad I didn’t here the salted caramel ice cream was delightfully scrumptious. My new favourite dessert. Only one criticism - didn’t like paying extra for sides on a set menu!
But fabulous experience for me and my 3 girlfriends. Would definitely recommend and return. Thank you.

Unique historic dining room. Lamb was cooked to perfection and the deconstructed style desserts were delicious.

Loved the food. The waiting staff were all very friendly and also very attentive. We went to celebrate my wife's birthday and one of the staff heard this, and they brought out a little birthday cake at the end of our meal, without being asked. It was a very nice touch and much appreciated. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We were very impressed with the quality of the food - all courses were imaginative, delicious and beautifully prepared. The service was invariably thoughtful and professional (we're sorry one of our friends had an intemperate and inexcusable complaint to the wine waiter as our bottle was not at hand and no waiter seemed to be visible at that juncture!) On the matter of the wine list, however, it is a shame that all wines are SO expensive . We chose the least expensive - a South African sauvignon blanc. It retails at about £7.00 a bottle, but was priced at £41.00! Ordinary G&Ts were similarly unreasonable priced at £9.50 for the gin and a further £3.50 for a small bottle of tonic. This is a discouraging level of mark-up, which ensures you only order one bottle at the most. This aspect also seemed regrettably very much out of character with the warm and balanced hospitality - and the very good value food - of the restaurant otherwise.

Food and service to the expected high standard. Exceptionally good value at £32 for three course meal with glass of good champagne and canapes But long, dark, gloomy passage to the restaurant made one feel it was the route to the dungeons, and the room itself felt bleak almost like mausoleum. These, with the 25 steps up to the toilets meant that I would never take a guest there whether for a business client or a lover's tryst.

Stunning restaurant in a restored heritage building - the mirrors capture the vintage of the place! The service could be better and staff friendlier. A bummer that they could not respect and cater to dietary restrictions. Otherwise highly recommended.

Glorious soaring architecture, and cool marble.
Deal champagne was brought before we even asked.
No quibble when one wanted a la carte.
