    But i just have to say this place was quite a surprise (not in a good sense). I met a friend off the train for a natter and dinner between trains one evening and chose this for convenience and the good reviews. The food was average (what you'd find in a regular pub these days - not bad, but not what i was expecting from the reviews). They put us on a table between a windy door and a table that remained uncleaned of dirty plates for about an hour. The service was polite (when they remembered we were there) but very poor – twice i had to get up and ask a waiter to 1) come and get our order 2) bring us the bill. The bill was then wrong - they over charged us by £20 and cheekily put on £8 service charge. And no hand towels in the loo!

    We had the 2 for £30 champagne afternoon tea. In common with some other places we have been on this sort of special offer, it looked to us like you actually got less food each for the money. Small sandwiches clearly made some time in advance (or at least with the bread left out) and hardly enough cream and jam for 1 let alone 2. And why have restaurants stopped giving you butter with scones? Anyway, what we did get was perfectly nice and for the money was decent enough - I just wouldn't pay the usual £60 for 2. Go to Harrods instead - it may be more expensive, but it will be worth every penny. I have to say the staff at Searcys were very good and St Pancras itself is of course impressive. Maybe an a la carte meal would be best.

    A welcoming start by both staff and atmosphere. The food was a let down. First course; tasty but cold soup. Having completed the first course, we waited over an hour for the mains. After complaining, which I hate doing, it took a further 15 mins for all dishes to arrive. My main meal (pork belly) was delicious. The mussels were also good. Unfortunately, the fish (lemon sole) was so bony it was difficult to enjoy. My daughter's risotto was sent back to the kitchen as it was gritty and it appeared to be made with curdled milk/cheese. Unfortunately, at that stage, I was forced to complain. We were offered a free desert in place of the risotto but to be honest, I had lost faith in it ever arriving so we settled on a reduced bill.

    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!

    I am a regular at Searcys St Pancras Grand primarily because of its convenient location/ The food is very consistent, though the service (kitchen rather than wait staff) can be a little erratic. Two visits in a row items ordered have not been delivered - this time it was a mixed salad. More care needs to be taken to ensure that all items are delivered. But overall it is a very pleasant restaurant.

    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.

    Okay if you just wish to have a bite before you charge off on the Eurostar. Always expect a little more care and service levels at St. Pancras Grand. It's in a spectacular location in one of the world's greatest railway stations, that deserves that the team to up their game a little more. Have been over 10 times in the last few years with Clients and always hope for more. Perhaps next time...

    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.

    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:(

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Hapless
    Dined on 23/5/2014
    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!

    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.
