This Searcys restaurant and bar on the upper concourse at St Pancras Station certainly boasts some pretty views. Look outside and you're treated to the impressive glass and steel lattice roof of the station; inside and it's a lovely art-deco room designed by Martin Brudnizki. You can see the Eurostar parking up and pulling away, too.

Dishes range from John Ross Jr. smoked salmon with pickled dill cucumber to Camden Pils-battered haddock and chips, Creedy Carver chicken pie and rib of beef on the bone with peppercorn and béarnaise sauces. Keep an eye out for weekly specials, too. 

Drinks are also a focus, with the champagne selection able to take advantage of Searcys Champagne Bar directly opposite, and a nicely categorised wine list led by the old world but with a fair few new world options too. Classic cocktails, a very good whisky selection and beers and ciders both on draught and by the bottle complete the list.

Having come to St. Pancras station as often as I have, I never noticed that the world's longest bar was situated above the Eurostar terminal! It was beautiful because as we arrived, the sun had already set so the dark skies contrasted well against the lights on the ceiling of the station and from those at the bar. It also wasn't very crowded at the bar outside, as it was a Thursday so it made for an even better atmosphere. 


This was the second stop on Searcys' 170th birthday event, where we were treated to a glass of champagne along with a tasting of braised beef with mashed potatoes, mushroom, and onions. I thought the food was divine! The beef pulled apart so easily with a spoon and it was immensely flavourful! However, I didn't like the pairing with champagne - the combination just didn't go very well together. I'm quite traditional when it comes to my food and wine pairings so red meat is always eaten with red wine, seafood and chicken (depending on the sauce) is eaten with white wine, and champagne or sparkling wines with dessert.

What's not to love about Champagne at the touch of a button?!


Searcy's at St Pancras is my go-to date night venue. Treat yourself to a couple of delicious champagne cocktails or push the boat out with a bottle of something more decadent (I'm a Louis Roederer fan all the way).


St Pancras is a gorgeous setting with a wrought iron and glass ceiling. I find sitting in the outside champagne bar with the white noise buzz of the nearby Eurostar to be particularly relaxing after a hectic week - although this kind of atmosphere might not be for everyone. 


Generally, I've found the staff to be pretty attentive (the ability to summon them at the push of a button probably helps here!) and the drinks never dissapoint.


If you're a frequent fizz drinker then it's also well worth signing up to 'Club 1847' to make the most of some tasty discounts!

We left a near by champagne tasting and needed to Carry on with the bubbles. A large extensive menu filled with all the bubbles you could want. The staff are helpful and all you need to do is tell them what you're in the mood for and the find the right champagne for your mood.

By the glass or by the bottle they've got it all and its good!

We only went for some quick drinks whilst we were waiting for our train. 


The seating and interior of the bar are beautiful, and I felt slightly like a socialite from a bygone era. It was my round, and on first glancing at the menu I was slightly put off by the prices (£9 and up for a cocktail).


I ordered a rum-based concoction that appeared in a tiny cup and I initially felt outraged. Then I sipped it. Oh, it was delicious. So delicious that everything was forgiven. 


A lovely spot for a chat and a cosy wait, but if you're watching your wallet I'd suggest ordering a half pint of beer - the miniature steins are adorable.  


Excellent for meetings, dining, social events and commercial events. Love the staff and management, food is lovely and combined with champagne bar it is a great place to be any time of the day


Completely lacking in atmosphere on a saturday night as it was largely empty. Food ok but nothing exceptional particularly given the prices. That said, it is a nice looking place.


I had a 3 hour wait for a train on Saturday morning and popped in for a breakfast. Service 5 stars. Food 5 stars. Really good on all fronts, not sure if they have had a sort out from the previous reviews.


I wish I had read Time Out review before going to this very 'Grand' restaurant the service and food were very bad.I took 14 people there for an important occasion and was very disappointed at the bad service and very poor food. None of us would go there again


Had afternoon tea here on a 241 offer and was certainly not wowed by the experience. The sandwiches and cake were nice but a touch on the dry side, refills of were chargeable which I think is incredibly cheeky - although perhaps we were treated differently as we had only paid £12.50 as opposed to the full price of £25. The staff were unfriendly, disinterested and not in the slightest bit attentive. There are far better places to go to in London for afternoon tea and sometimes it's worth paying that bit extra. Would not return to this establishment.


Poor service, over priced and average food. I wanted to take my favourite Aunt for a nice lunch before she headed off on her train. We had 1.5 hours before she had to catch her train, which I thought was plenty of time for a one course meal. We both ordered the fish cakes, we waited 45 mins for the food to arrive, having had to nag beforehand. Our one fishcake with some limp looking spinach arrived, however neither of us could see or taste any fish in our FISH CAKE! Having spend £14 on each meal, we expected a lot more, quantity and quality. The service was dull, the food was duller, we will never return.


Had lunch here after attending an event and it is totally overrated and overpriced. Food quality is very poor, lukewarm steak for my partner and lukewarm liver with very overcooked bacon for me, side orders arrived 5 minutes after main meal and only after informing staff we were still waiting for sides . Asked for a jug of water and got warm tap water, no ice in jug. Service terrible, staff are snooty and act like they are doing you a favour. They do not come to your table once your food has been served and ask if everything is ok. Came out feeling I had been ripped off, would not go there again, there are much better places to eat in London for the same price as it's not cheap.
