Restaurant description

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 English tomatoes with feta & spearmint, and pressed chicken & truffle terrine with mushroom ketchup. Follow this with sea bass with nasturtium, olive and salted ricotta, or halibut with sweet corn and chorizo. From the grill, sample the 25-day dry-aged Chateaubriand, or pork chop with cabbage slaw & mustard.

George's Bar at The Gilbert Scott 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.

    The food was fantastic - really delicious and rich. I particularly recommend the Dauphinoise potato and the triple cooked chips. The setting is awesome, staff were cheerful and service was very good - just right, not hurried not slow. Be aware that the price of the set meal is a bit misleading, as there's a supplement for two of the four main dishes on the menu and the main meals don't come complete with any vegetables or potatoes. Sides are £6 each - delicious, but be prepared to bump up your bill. Having said that, the wine by the glass was reasonably priced.

    Main course was served cold !!! That was unacceptable - people who book aren’t aware of all the extra costs.There is not a choice of cocktail, which should also be pointed out.Service is quite slow and the wines are ridiculously expensive

    Excellent throughout. I don't get to the Gilbert Scott that often, but it's always a pleasure. I asked about the vermouth in my Negroni and was shown the bottle and allowed to photograph it. Food, as ever, was excellent.
