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.
Fittingly, there's something of the entente cordiale to the food menu here. Dishes range from potted shrimp, London cure smoked salmon and fish and chips with tartare sauce to steak frites, lobster tail thermidor and rognons d'agneau à la dijonnaise - lambs' kidneys with a dijon mustard sauce. 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.

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.
