We always have breakfast here before Lords or Oval Test Matches
Waiter came back 10 mins after we ordered to say he had forgotten what we ordered. 15 minutes later 2 crab starters were served - even though we ordered 2 shrimp cocktails. We finally got the right starter 10 mins later - asked for some more thousand island sauce as there was hardly any sauce in the dish. The sauce came 15 mins later by which time we had finished our starter. The pork main course was so tough I could not cut it- even with a steak knife.
2 recommendations - hire more staff and train them.
Decent quality, interesting dishes, at a reasonable price. The room and furnishings were good and in good condition, and the service was prompt and appropriate.
Lovely characterful place to eat outside the hustle and bustle of London Streets. Battered Haddock wonderful, wines and Champagne great flavours albeit a little pricy.
We took a group of 12 to the St. Pancras Brasserie after a meeting in London. The food was excellent. Most had the £29 fixed menu with a very nice Malbec to wash it down. Food was very tasty and remarkably good value for London. I would not hesitate to go again and have recommended it to colleagues.
Spacious, unhurried and relaxed with none of the crowding, table-turning and din of msny centsl London restaurants. Very nice food and pleasant serving staff.
A great place to eat in St Pancras, right by the Eurostar trains on the upper level but quiet and civilised inside. Very good oysters and steak for lunch with a good value wine selection.
The set menu is great value and the food was excellent !
Great venue with good service and interesting menu
Very pleasant interior and the food and staff were excellent. A very enjoyable experience and I will certainly return.
Calm, elegant setting in a beautiful but busy station. The set menu is reasonable value but as you need a side dish - and this is £4 - it’s not really a set menu is it? I’ve noticed quite a few restaurants sneaking this added cost onto a set menu. Plenty of choice on the a la carte menu - my daughters burger was good and the Mother’s chicken escalope was lovely too. The steak on the set menu was very tasty and the mashed potatoes probably the best I’ve ever had.
My favourite pre-travel dining experience. Consistently excellent food, service and ambience.
The service and food were both outstanding, and the art Deco interior is beautiful. I would absolutely book here again - an oasis in the station !
I visit Searcy's every time I come into London - at least once every week - and I am never disappointed. The food is excellent and the service is always outstanding.
We had been once before, for lunch, so with 3 days in London, had to come again. The food is delicious, service is attentive without being intrusive. Decor is modern but calming. We were staying in Southwark, but the tube trip here was well worth it.
Unhurried and extremely comfortable with a good ambience. I am a return customer and once again I was impressed by the food and service. The wine is a good price as recently I've noticed that many restaurants doing these deals have a prohibitive wine list starting at £48. Too much. Not so here so we had two bottles of wine and spent a leisurely couple of hours.
Food was good, service was average.
More concerned with each other than the customers.
We go a lot to this restaurant.
Moments of greatness, moments of disappointment is the best description of our Saturday lunch. We booked a set menu offer but my other half found the a la carte more appealing. The room is light and spacious, just by the Eurostar platform and it was by no means full — which left no excuse for the 30minute wait for starters which were both essentially cold meat which involved nothing more than cutting and garnishing.
It was the staff change over, and service ground to a halt. After asking about the delay, our starters arrived almost immediately — which was good, but underlined how unnecessary the wait had been. The ham hock and spiced sausage terrine was spot on, flavoursome, good texture, and the garnish of pickled cabbage and apple provided a perfect contrast of crunch and acidity. The charcuterie of British meats was also excellent. Both are light on bread if like your carbs, but on request, more arrived quickly.
The set menu main was a disappointment. The salt-cod cake itself was delicious, but the saffron sauce was far too salty. A sauce which should have been savoured was, instead avoided. The side of spring green was also heavily salted. Why do so many chefs fall into this trap? It's easy to add salt, but you can't take it out. In this case, the combination of salt in the sauce and strong hit of garlic from the mussles meant the delicate flavour of the saffron was completely swamped — a waste of a wonderful spice.
The wine list is excellent, and includes a delicious English sparkling wine — yes, I know, but trust me, it's worth a try. We also had a New Zealand riesling which was excellent, and just as our initial waitress had described. On the down side, having made a note of the label so we could keep an eye out for it again, we also saw how heftily it was marked up. The bill was also quite hefty as 17.5% service was added. We asked for it to be removed, which it was, and left a more appropriate cash tip. For the price, it's hard to recommend.
Great venue, great food. Staff very friendly and efficient. A little oasis of calm from the hustle and bustle of a busy station.
Booked a table for 8 people to celebrate my 50th birthday - what a major disappointment. Having made the booking 6 months prior and requested a particular table by the window, I was informed only 10 days beforehand that the table wasn't available unless I paid an additional £120, as this was classed as a 'private dining area'. I decided to take the option of an alternative table that was 'just as good' in the restaurant. On the night, the noise level in the restaurant was intolerable, so bad we couldn't hear each other speak. Seeing the 'private dining' table was vacant my husband enquired about the price and asked if it was possible to move. He was told abruptly he had already been told the price already, that it was £180 (£60 more than what I, his wife, had been told). We decided not to pay the newly inflated price and move because frankly the service had up to that point been incredibly slow, the noise level intolerable (which wouldn't have been any different in the not so 'private dining' area) and the staff rude, so why pay even more? The service went on to be very slow, with one suited manager attempting to explain that this was due to only one waiter being on duty, and yet I saw several suited staff just lolling around and who could have helped? All in all, the meal was a complete let down (late to arrive and not worth the money) which was a huge embarrassment in front of my family & friends. The service on the whole was extremely slow, not just with the arrival of the food, but also with the wine ordering and knowledge of the wine (chilling a bottle of red wine??). The waiter was at times rude (questioned one guest rudely about her judgement) and tried to put us off ordering pie as 'it would take so long'. I could go on but frankly I don't want to spend more time on this than I have to because I am already reminded of the £500+ bill I paid for the
experience. I so wish I had gone to a different restaurant. You certainly won't be seeing my custom again.
Excellent food, good value for this quality. We had the set menu and some a la carte dishes and all were delicious. Poor service on this occasion. Long delay in taking order and between each course, repeatedly forgetting our request for water. Have eaten here before and was good service, so likely a temporary glitch.
St Pancras Brasserie is a good place to meet someone who is shortly taking a train from St Pancras Station. A bit soulless, but good food and no rush about vacating the table.
Consistent reliable quality service and food - ideal for travel connections
Great for a lunch time catch up as the menu is good value for money. Lacks a bit of atmosphere at lunch sadly though.
St Pancras Brasserie is such a convenient place to meet up for dinner with friends who are travelling into London by train. There is a reasonable choice in the set menu, including for vegetarians, and reasonably priced. The food is tasty, well presented and the dishes on the set menu do change as we dined there with different friends a month previously. The tables are nicely spaced so that diners do not disturb each other, and the ambience is good. The waiters were friendly and helpful, and the service was efficient. Would definitely recommend.
It would have been better if the normal Al a Carte menu was available on Sunday - as opposed to the limited Sunday menu.
lovely almosphere - great meeting place - stylish - enjoyed the almosphere of the impressive St Pancras Station
Brought my mum here for a treat, ordered eggs benedict and one of my muffins was burnt and my mum ordered salmon and scrambled egg and the salmon was salty, also overall was very unhappy with service as booked bottomless brunch and one of the waitresses came up to us 15 mins before the bottomless sparkling wine ended and said that it was the last glass we could have. Felt that it didn't make me feel like I had a good overall experience.
Lovely service, unfortunately they didn’t have the pancakes but they made up for it with friendly attentive staff and a treat for my birthday.
Iconic venue with attractive decor & good food options. Great meeting place. Easy to book & edit when running behind schedule.
Would go again.
Very pleasant experience, good food and service. What was particularly good was, the restaurant wasn’t overly busy, so we were able to discuss our business in peace, and we weren’t hassled to get out the moment we had finished our meal.
We visited with a TimeOut voucher for 2 courses and bottomless fizz. We both had steak for main which was delicious, service was outstanding with our glasses being constantly topped up!
The men waiting on were dreadful. The young lady was really nice and made up for it. Was a bit dead so not much atmosphere.
Very good experience following a few days in London.
The restaurant is situated very conveniently for travel to and from the mainline train stations at St Pancras and King’s Cross. Very good dishes on the set menu for 2 or 3 course, which was very reasonably priced, although there is a larger choice on the a la carte menu. The staff were friendly, although the service was a bit slow, which was OK for us as we then had a lot of time to catch up with friends.
I loved every minute of it. Honestly, I couldn't mark it down.
Once again we met with friends at Searcys St Pancras. This time it was for a birthday celebration for one of the friends! We had a lovely celebration. We all thoroughly enjoyed the lunch and it was made special by a Happy Birthday dessert at the end! Good food and champagne. Perfect day for our celebration! Smiles all round.
Our waitress was attentive and non-obtrusive. We seem to wait a very long time for a pre-dinner scotch but otherwise service was good. I think the ambiance is just a little "dark" and in some ways austere. There are also occasional aromas that smell of stale fish from the areas around the toilets.
It was a belated birthday lunch for my girlfriend.
We throughly enjoyed the meal. Food was excellent staff were excellent as well.
Would reccommend this venue to family and friends
