Lastweek LondOntheInside did lunch at The St Pancras Grand Brasserie and we approved. The décor is old school glamour, the kind of place you can imagine film stars ate in days gone by.
Located in St Pancras station the restaurant fits in well with it’s new neighbour the Renaissance St Pancras hotel. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner the brasserie is the ideal place to start your jollies before boarding Eurostar – as you do!
The menu offers a good selection of British favourites as well as oysters, afternoon tea, roasts and daily specials. We ate the chicken, ham and mushroom pie served with carrots and a side order of fat chips. The pie was stuffed full of meat and the chips were huge, fluffy fresh beasts, the ideal dish for a cold Winters day. Whilst the food is quite expensive the surrounds make it worth the treat.
The only grumble we did have was the general lack of staff which meant ordering anything extra was a pain and our drinks only came after several reminders. However we liked it so much we’d definitely give it another shot, the good out weighed the bad and there was no ugly.
