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.

    Cod was salty. No acknowledgement that the booking was for a birthday

    We dined with friends and had the set menu. All food was really good. Two of us ordered the bream and it was beautifully cooked. Particularly enjoyed the salmon starter. Vegetarian main dish was apparently delicious. All presented well. Building is fabulous. We went very early just as the restaurant opened. Lots of staff sorting out the start of evening service. Staff attentive but not overly so. We all managed to laugh when our starters were dropped by the waiter. A second lot came very quickly. Our waiter was very obliging in making sure our food arrived smoothly and swiftly as we had a train to catch. Pleasant eating experience all round.

    Another fab Marcus restaurant. Faultless food & friendly impeccable service. We’ll definitely be back soon.

    The dining room at the Gilbert Scott is impressive and elegant, and overall the food was lovely - as was the service. The caramelised onion soup with gruyere on toast is an excellent starter, and the pheasant stew a real treat on a cold night. The fish cooked beautifully. the desserts were excellent. The cherry bakewell was magnificent. The pears lovely. The only let down? The vegetables. Lukewarm gratin dauphinois (not quite cold enough to send back), and bland and boring buttered vegetables (cabbage). But a lovely lovely visit.

    Restaurant lacked ambiance. The food was very average & the Apple crumble I chose for desert was so hard I left it in fear of cracking a tooth.

    The table service and food were excellent and I would recommend the set menu for value for money. The dining room and setting are probably one of the best in London.

    Some staff made us feel inferior because we had booked an offer. The offer included a glass of fizz which we had to ask for. I had put on the booking that I had a cheese allergy but there were very few items on the menu thst did not include cheese. No alternatives could be given, not even chips as "the fryer has broken". Weren't told that we only had the table for a short time and were only made aware of this when a waiter placed the bill on our table and said they would need the table in 10 mins. Overall, not a good experience for such a prestigious establishment.

    The food and service were excellent as usual. A special word for the ox cheek, which was beautifully cooked and melted in the mouth.
