Harden's survey result
“It’s such a wonderful building” – the spectacular neo-Gothic riot of St Pancras Station – and Marcus Wareing’s “fabulously grand” and “buzzing” dining room near the Eurostar platforms “seduces with its ambience” (“it’s all rather ‘Orient Express’”). Judged as a foodie destination alone, appreciation of its distinctively traditional, British cuisine is sometimes dogged by gripes about dishes that are “not up-to-scratch” (or incidents of “clunky” service), but most reports applaud its “very pleasant” approach and “excellent menu that’s always evolving, so the food stays interesting”.
A “magnificent” space, within the “spectacular neo-gothic hotel attached to St Pancras Station” provides a superb backdrop to a meal at Marcus Wareing’s “impressive” dining room; and it’s a good place to entertain on business (“ideally situated for the Eurostar!”). When it comes to the “very British” food however, results remain mixed: even fans can find it “a shade lacking given the ticket price” and numerous sceptics describe it as “adequate, but totally unmemorable”.
“Even the splendour of the dining room does not explain the bill” at Marcus Wareing’s “airy” and “atmospheric” venue, near the Eurostar Platforms – even those who feel the British cuisine is good can find prices “excessive”, and its worst critics feel the mismatch is “ridiculous”.
“Who can resist the splendour?” of this “huge” and “iconic” dining room, not far from the Eurostar platforms? Even fans can note that Marcus Wareing’s offering here is “highly priced”, but ratings bounced back across the board this year for his resolutely British cuisine.
The Gilbert Scott Restaurant Diner Reviews
"One of the main drawers to the restaurant is the setting and the amazing George's Bar - great place. Food was good though unremarkable. Good wine list though."
