The Gilbert Scott

Renaissance St Pancras Hotel, Euston Road, LONDON, NW1 2AR

3 rosettes

Sir George Gilbert Scott was the architect responsible for the Midland Grand Hotel, built in 1873 and restored to its former Gothic Revival glory as the key travel hub to France arrived on its doorstep, it's now called the St Pancras Renaissance, which seems wholly appropriate. A ticket to ride is not required for lunch or dinner at the Marcus Wareing-run restaurant, but the gloriously revamped interior can certainly help you travel back in time - breathtakingly ornate and stylish, its glamorous cocktail bar and dining room have soaring ceilings and gilding galore. Open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, the British-focused menu takes prime UK produce and a soupçon of French style to deliver a well-crafted, gently contemporary repertoire. Among first courses, pigeon and pistachio terrine keeps company with wonderfully sticky onion jam, followed by poached hake with tender squid and a punchy romesco sauce (a taste of the Med), Cumbrian pork neck with braised onion (bags of northern charm), or slow-cooked brisket with parmesan and radicchio (comfort food for the international traveller). To finish, prune and Armagnac tart is textbook stuff, but one glance at the cheese trolley and it's hard to resist. The wine list runs to 350 bins and includes big guns alongside small artisan producers.
