Afternoon tea (“try Champagne as well as tea!”) is a highlight at this stylishly appointed brasserie inside St Pancras Station, whose popular exterior bar overlooks the Eurostar tracks. The food doesn’t always impress everyone (“like a trip back to the days of British Rail catering”) but most reports this year were uniformly favourable.

“If one arrives early for the train to Paris”, this “beautiful, grand space in an historic setting” is, say fans, “not a bad place to while away the time”. But a large majority of reporters agree, “it could and should be better”“I was hoping for the sort of vibe experienced at Grand Central Station in New York but it didn’t have the same panache” and “the food can be a let-down for the price”.

The “beautiful Art Deco setting” of this modern railway dining room raises expectations which are all too often “disappointed” by the meal. There’s a real sense of an opportunity missed, with Searcys’ performance and “poor service” too reminiscent of the bad old days of British Rail.

For 31 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).

"I was surprised to return here and find the whole place has stepped up a gear, the menu is wide-ranging, the cooking good, the service friendly and the set dinner good value. Now a match for some of the newer and busier rivals nearby - and you can't beat it for a view of the trains"

"Great setting and convenient for the station. Lacks atmosphere during the week. Food is a little unimaginative. "
