Diner Reviews
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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."
    dined on 25/04/2014
  • "A much better venue than the fabled champagne bar - that is way too cold most f the year! This place is elegance and refinement. Beautiful decor and tables sensibly spaced. Service a little slow, but overall good food and value. Desert was a apoor choice - way too sugary but hey thats probably hat you need in a desert!"
    dined on 22/04/2014
  • "The restaurant was very quiet, the waiter was moody, not very communicative, the food was ok - nothing special. We won't be returning. Obviously no cloakroom as nobody took our coats for us. We were on a small table and had to roll our coats up."
    dined on 22/04/2014
  • "The ambiance and decor on arrival gave us high expectations for a fine evening. But this was dashed from the off by the abrupt staff on inquiring if their were other vegetarian options on the limited menu, were told no without even checking with the kitchen - amazing to find front of house staff so well versed in the culinary limitations of their chef, without the need to ask! The remainder of the offerings were good on presentation but limited on taste and quality. Overall, nothing of note just average. Upmarket station cafe. Shame, it has the potential to be so much more."
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "Went on a Thursday night for a friends birthday. Had the set menu which was good value. Ambience was a bit stale and service was not great, offered bread but it never arrived and then charged for it at the end. Would recommend this restaurant for business meals perhaps not for a group or intimate dining. Overall food was good and was good value on the set menu."
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "Food and service were actually good but with one exception, everytime we book the TopTable Offer we always have a fight to follow through with it. As usual we were greeted with the a la carte menu. When I asked for the set menu I was told that the a la carte was the only menu, it was only later when we pushed the matter saying that we'd booked the TopTable offer the waitress went off and returned with the set menu related to the offer. When I say every time, I mean every time! We've dined here using the offer several times before and always have the same problem, so much so that it makes us hesitate to book again (but it is so damned convenient and the food is good!)"
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "Another visit to this wonderful restaurant. Fabulous meal and service. "
    dined on 14/04/2014
  • "Service was great, attentive waitress and a bit of banter as well which is nice. Food was a little salty in places and manager was helpful. Quiet chilled atmosphere on a Saturday night good to be able to hear each other for a chat. Decorated plate with HBD but dessert itself wasn't nice (millionaire shortbread despite waitress recommending it) so kind of spoilt the birthday presentation. Not bad. "
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "Grumpy waiter and long wait for food made this less than the experience we were hoping for. Especially given the cost. Maybe just go for a glass of fizz and certainly not if you're in a rush."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "Booked Searcy's for lunch £19 plus glass of pink fizz. Fantastic location as it's so handy for everyone coming from different parts of London and Kent. The food was very tasty and plentiful and the glass of fizz was a welcomed addition. Great selection of wine and we all had a very enjoyable lunch. Service was cheerful without being intrusive. Will definitely return."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "Great value on the TT offer of 2 courses plus a glass of pink fizz for £19. three choices for each course, OK but not as generous as some restaurants. Starters of pork terrine and mushroom risotto were excellent. The experience was slightly marred by the overintrusive background music, which is unnecessary in a restaurant like this where there is more than a gentle background hum from the diners!"
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "St Pancras Grand Café/Brasserie is a regular and favourite venue for lunches or dinners with friends. Its location is very central/accessible, it offers a good range of menus, often with special offers, and in a stylish venue. It consistently delivers a relaxed experience to suit many people."
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "It was my daughter's 13th birthday and we planned a Mother&Daughter day out in London, ending with dinner and theatre. I booked Searcy's St Pancras for a late breakfast/brunch and we sat inside the brasserie. The staff were all excellent and very helpful. The food was lovely, and I am hard to please! The Grand muffin breakfast and Chargrilled Bacon Butty were made with good quality ingredients, well presented and tasted great. Staff then presented my daughter with a complimentary plate iced Happy Birthday with handmade chocolate truffles and fresh raspberries, she was thrilled! Thank you to all the staff who were very kind and gave us such a lovely start to our day."
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "Eaten here a few times and the service has got worse and worse and slower and slower. Doesn't help that the waiters all stand together gossiping behind the central counter whilst customers try and get their attention. This time we booked an offer and then had to negotiate to actually get the offer!? Also no record of our booking, when they found it they said I'd booked for 2 hours earlier. I hadn't. Food is entirely average but has crept up in price. After several visits that will be my last."
