Diner Reviews
  • "Having heard good things about Searcys St Pancras Grand, to be honest we were a little disappointed. We entered, and the decor is impressive. We had the set meal with a glass of bubbly. The pink bubbly was delicious. The set menu options looked appealing. But, even for fine dining, the portions were a little small. My wife had the fish, but it had no vegetables (unfortunately as per the menu) - and being the set menu, there was no opportunity for side dishes. Although the restaurant was not busy, we found it hard enough to attract staff's attention. First time ever we left a place feeling hungry. Maybe it's better for lunch or a la carte."

  • "Good meal once again - it's a reliable meeting place. Service was very accommodating - we lingered a long time over drinks before moving to our table but it wasn't a problem. Very quick to bring extra orders - ie. we ordered chips only when the main course arrived and they were there within about 90 seconds!"
    dined on 22/08/2014
  • "Excellent set price meal - £19 for 2 courses with a glass of bubbly. Service very friendly. Only criticism is that the fizz came at the same time as the starter. It would have been nice if that had come more quickly, as soon as we said we were going for that menu, so that we could savour the drink before the food came. This is a great location for meeting people who may have come by train from other parts of the country. I will be back (this week in fact!)"

  • "I went with a friend for lunch. We had the £15, 2 course al la carte set menu with a glass of pink fizz. You could not fault the food it was amazing. Menu: There are three choices to choose from, one consisting of a vegetarian option. I had the sea trout for my main which unfortunately was the last one available. This was the only downside especially as we ate at 1pm. Service and the restaurant were fantastic, as rather say they were out of a fish option, they automatically offered another choice of fish which was plaice. This was succulent and flavoursome. Please do not expect big portions, this is al la carte, with amazing flavours. Searcy’s is a great place to go for lunch."
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "They currently have a special offer of 3 course & a glass of fizz for £20. I took a friend for a birthday treat & have taken 2 other groups of friends since. The restaurant inside & out is fantastic, modern art deco, the staff very attentive but not in your face & the food not only tastes as good as it looks but is fantastic value. I've booked to go back again for another friends birthday in September & can't wait."
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "The restaurant setting is stunning in the fabulous St Pancras station. I found the interior a bit slick and 'nighclubby' and as it was a lovely summer day, not very appropriate. So we ate outside. We had booked the lunch special but the menu was unexciting so we went a la carte. My smoked haddock with poached egg and mustard sauce was very good. But my companion ordered the calves liver which proved disappointing. it was thickly sliced and very sinewy.(Calves liver should be thinly sliced and very tender) it was also expensive at £18 - not including vegetables. Service was Ok but it was very quiet so perhaps not surprising. So overall the experience was a bit disappointing:("

  • "Well, what can I say. It was absolutely lovely. We had the Open Table deal, two courses and a glass of fizz for £15. We had the chicken from the menu, and the New York cheesecake. Tasted wonderful. Excellent value for money and the staff were very attentive. What a gem. Loved it and will be back."
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "Always lovely. We meet from the trains from champagne breakfast. The staff aren't the friendliest but they never mind that we all arrive at different times and are at the table for a long time. The salmon and scrambled egg is good. It would be nice to have a choice though!"
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "Searcy's St. Pancras Grand is a splendid luncheon venue, especially before leaving on a special journey (e.g on the Eurostar). The service was warm, welcoming and professional. The food very well presented, tasty and quick. The wine delicious. Little to fault in a very successful adieu to the UK for five international wanderers. I'd certainly repeat the experience."
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "Searcy's St Pancras is a very convenient spot to meet commuting friends and I am very much a regular. The service was a little off the evening I attended - bar staff were slightly baffled by my request for a glass of sav blanc ( to be fair, it is a champagne bar, but it didn't seem like an unusual request). I was served the wrong sauce with my steak and the kitchen forgot my side salad. I think these service errors rested with the kitchen rather than our waiter who was trying hard to provide attentive service. A bit disappointing, but hopefully just a blip."
    dined on 22/07/2014
  • "If you want a reliable place to eat before catching a train at St. Pancras, Searcy's is the answer. The main menu is quite comprehensive and the 'specials' menu is excellent value. The restaurant is part of the Champagne Bar on the station so the variety of champagnes on offer is comprehensive. The food is always consistent, well presented and full of flavour... we will return."
    dined on 22/07/2014
  • "Lovely choice onthe set menu - all 3 options for each course sounded fab! The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious, and the pink fizz lovely. Staff were attentive but not over the top - a lovely relaxed evening would go again."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "Fixed price menu good value. Quiet and able to hear one selves! Pleasant surroundings and no children."
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "Portions very small. A la carte poor value though special deal reasonable value. Manager very understanding when we said potion of cheese and biscuits was very poor value and rectified it."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "Special deal makes this worthwhile. Quiet ambience, so good for conversation, but low lighting means don't bother to bring a book to read while waiting for your dining companion."
    dined on 07/07/2014
  • "Treat to myself before a tough meeting..........I find Eggs Benedict does the job, every time. Go for the decor alone; superb."
    dined on 02/07/2014
  • "Took my parents for afternoon tea and we were given the choice of inside or out. Went inside, which had lovely decor and ambience. Quite a standard afternoon tea but of good quality, and for £15 with a glass of fizz, it really is a great offer"
    dined on 29/06/2014
  • "We were left hungry after choosing to take the set menu. I wasn't that enamoured with the chicken either."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "Service a bit on the slow side, which was particularly disappointing given it wasn't very busy."
    dined on 25/06/2014
  • "Searcys St Pancras Grand is a great spot to meet friends coming into St Pancras. Sometime the food can be a littlet variable, but our experience was excellent and the service was attentive. Recommended."
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "I have dinned at Searcys St Pancras Grand two times. Business meetings - once for breakfast and another for dinner and we had to beg for service. At the breakfast session, any time we wanted anything - our coffees or waters, etc, we had to go the the location of all the servers and ask for assistance. Our server would not make eye contact with us anytime she was in our area. For the dinner, we had to ask for service to begin - 20 minutes after we were seated with menus. During this time we were not offered drinks. Not even water. This was for 530 on a Friday and the restaurant was not busy. During our meal, the service moderately improved when the manager noticed we had to get up from our seats and ask for needed items. Shocking."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "Good atmosphere and food. Service can be a little relaxed. Noisy background music but classy"
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "Took my wife there for dinner. Although not full service was a little slow. I think this restaurant is ideal for business meal."
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • " The arrogance can only be described as theatrical, farcical, the right thespian genre. We realised they weren't actual waiting/reception staff but actors from Central Casting, portraying ridiculously outré staff. But boy they wete convincing. Customers couldn't be blamed for thinking they were real staff, with psychotic disorder's that made them act as if in a Blake Edwards 'Pink Panther' movie; they appeared serious, not as if playing it for laughs. As young actors role playing; they were good and have great futures on the Stage, Movies or TV. They were convincing as egotistical, superiors who'd taken over a Restaurant for the day and had to serve plebeians. But of course, we caught on right away! They were Actors, rehearsing a show!"
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • "Searcys St Pancras is ideally placed for those of us who travel to and from the north by train. We had a meal there before returning home. Our welcome was warm and all staff we met were delightful, attentive and efficient. Our selection was from the set menu which had a reasonable choice of three starters and three mains with a selection of deserts and included a glass of fizz. The starter of herring soused in cider was excellent and my wife enjoyed the beetroot and goats cheese salad. We both had the same main of bream which was delicious. The dining room was very pleasant, comfortable and calm. We intend to return to Searcys on future visits to London."
    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "I visited Searcy's at St Pancras with my some family members on a Friday early evening - the restaurant was reasonably quiet and there was a nice ambiance. The food was simple but delicious (great chicken and chips). The staff were very friendly and helpful but everything seemed to take quite a long time and we had to wait quite a while to get their attention. On the whole the menu was good, the ambience was nice and we will definitely return."
    dined on 16/05/2014
  • "Been to Seacy's twice now and both times the hostess, although a little bit slow in getting us to the table, were very welcoming and helpful. The service is a bit hit and miss, but the waiting staff are very charming and helpful. The prices for London are very good as well and the food is value for money. All in all it is in a good location and a good dining experience."
    dined on 15/05/2014
  • "Gaining anyone's attention was tough, there just weren't enough staff for the restaurant size, the restaurant experience may then improve. "
    dined on 15/05/2014
  • "The special offer was good value for money. Though the portion sizes were small, the quality of the food was excellent. "
    dined on 15/05/2014
  • "the portions were too small for the prices and the service too high..."
    dined on 13/05/2014
  • "Had the lunch set menu. The food was lovely but there was only a choice of three dishes for starter and main so quite restricted. Had the goats cheese and beetroot salad to start which was minuscule with only a tiny crumble of cheese! Had the sea bream for the main which again was nice but could have come with a few more accompliments. Not sure I would do the set lunch again. Have been for afternoon tea in the past which was really nice!"
    dined on 09/05/2014
  • "I had eaten here before and had better. I had a Top Table deal of 3 courses from a set menu. My starter was a goat's cheese and beetroot salad. The goat's cheese was so minimal you could hardly see it, let alone taste it. My main of risotto was lovely. I oped for the cheese and biscuits and it was just one cheese - albeit a good portion. The place is great, the staff were lovely, shame about the starter!"
    dined on 06/05/2014
  • "early dinner with colleague to discuss work service slow despite being quiet - I arrived first and waited 10minites forbore being offered a drink no skimmed milk for coffee!!"
    dined on 06/05/2014
  • "Searcy's food was good, and its a lovely place, but the table service we recieved was terrible. The greeting staff was very helpful, and accomodating."
    dined on 30/04/2014
  • "Nice location, ok food but service rather dazed and confused. Maybe just go for a drink next time. Think the 1st class waiting room next door is more fun."
    dined on 29/04/2014
  • "The restaurant is very well sited for a quick bite waiting for the train, and compared to the fast food joints around St Pancras and Kings Cross, Searcy's provides a very calm surrounding and freshly cooked food. My fish was very enjoyable, and the meal excellent value."
    dined on 29/04/2014
  • "We were the only people dining so hard to gauge ambience. Table for 3 for social/business dinner. Food was good. Dover sole should have been de-boned in the kitchen rather than on the table and going cold in the meantime. Nothing much to say that was outstanding but equally nothing that was bad either."
    dined on 27/04/2014
  • "food here is good and while the ambience is not amazing. It makes for a nice evening meal. at least it used to, now the service is so poor, i will not be returning again"
    dined on 25/04/2014
  • "As usual outstanding value, good service and good ambiance"
    dined on 25/04/2014
  • "The restaurant and the ambience were wonderful for meeting a friend for a special lunch. She was from Wales and loved everything about the restaurant as it has instant "wow" factor. Unfortunately we were left underwhelmed by the food, I was not offered hard cheese with my risotto, if this is because of price, then better that it is left of the menu . I attempted to get the attention of the waitress on three occasions. She seemed to be ignoring me..... I was attempting to order more drinks, but she seemed deeply uninterested so I just asked for the bill."
