Set in the stunning pink Gothic Revival St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, and using the hotel's original name, this 'elevated brasserie' promises to serve a modern interpretation of classic French cuisine, under ex-Chiltern Fire House chef Patrick Powell.

Summary

Set in the stunning Gothic Revival St Pancras Renaissance Hotel – and using the establishment’s original name – this ‘elevated brasserie’ opened in May 2023 to replace The Gilbert Scott (RIP) just as our survey was concluding. Consequently even though we did have one (upbeat) initial report, there’s too little feedback for a rating. But The Standard’s Jimi Famurewa was also a fan, admiring the amazing “double-height main room… gilded cornice work… vast textured mirrors” (but also noting a “slight stiltedness of atmosphere”). Its modern interpretation of classic French cuisine is under ex-Chiltern Fire House chef Patrick Powell: JF notes “light kitsch… impeccable details… intricate presentation” but “a potentially ruinous bill” (“prices… can take you whistling past the £100 a head mark without even really trying”).

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"Fresh and interesting plates in a lovely old dining room. Highlights were the snacks, comte gougeres especially. Beef tartare was overly salted, but everything else hit the spot. "
