This brand new outpost of Fortnum & Mason is a haven of tranquility amidst the bustle of St Pancras International Station. The perfect way to begin or end your journey, or a convenient and congenial place to meet friends and colleagues, it serves a varied menu of drinks and light meals throughout the day.The new store combines a well-stocked shop with a tea salon. We take reservations for breakfast and for our all-day dining menu.

For breakfast, there are the simple pleasures of toast, cereals and porridge as well as more substantial fare such as kedgeree, Welsh Rarebit and Eggs Benedict.

All-dining can be light or hearty as required, with a menu featuring savoury tarts and salads as well as hot meals such as braised venison and fish pie. Champagne, beer and wine are all available, as well as soft drinks, tea and coffee.

Finally, it should go without saying that Afternoon Tea is also on the menu, alongside scones, cake, ice cream and puddings.

I gave the noise level as moderate due to a couple with their child at the next table - the child was using a device without head phones and we had that noise (although not altogether loud) throughout our meal.
There was a general relaxed feeling to the restaurant area with quiet staff who were attentive and obliging.
The food was a good standard (as at F&M in Piccadilly) - I had eggs florentine and the eggs were a beautiful golden orange, perfectly cooked.
It did seem a little pricy as we were eating in a station, but the quiet, relaxed feel was like a little oasis away from the anxious travellers and their suitcases.

Great service - very friendly and helpful (I was there with my rather elderly father). He enjoyed the Welsh rarebit and I had good salmon and scrambled eggs. Great crumble for pudding. Importantly we could hear each other and we were away from the crowds. Not cheap but a very good option.

I am a regular at this charming spot which is perfect as a very civilised venue for quiet conversations either for business or simply catching up with friends. The food is light and tasty and the service impeccable. A hidden gem as many people don't notice the restaurant at the back of the shop.

Had afternoon tea here. Ambiance isn't great - you're eating in the corner of a small shop. Food was tasty overall - everything was good. But service was very poor. Messed up our order initially, didn't bring us the right amount of food for 3 people, overcharged us, and just overall was not good. Wouldn't go back for tea...

We had an amazing time at the afternoon tea at Fortnum and Mason during our weekend trip to London. It was one of the most inexpensive options we found, yet there was a generous amount of sandwiches, scones, and desserts as well as a pot of tea (of your choice) that kept us full. The hosting staff was extremely amiable and accommodating. I would highly recommend F&M to anyone looking to check afternoon tea off their bucket list!

We had afternoon tea, when I asked the waiter what the cakes were, he didn’t know and was unable to find out.
Also the silver edge on the China was warn away, generally the China looked old.

F&M St Pancras is a brilliant place to meet friends for lunch. It is very convenient for meeting friends passing through London. so far this month I have converted three people to your Welsh Rarebit. I usually go to the main restaurant for my birthday lunch but may come here instead.

We went here mainly because it is in St pancras Station where we get our train home. It is also a good location for our daughter who lives in North London. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our server found out it was our daughter's birthday and she gave her some jams as a present which was a nice touch. Sausage and mash was tasty but the portions were small. The seating is a bit cramped but all in all we enjoyed ourselves. We would go here again.

Nice ambience at back of shop with lovely products. However the main turkey roast and gravy was rather dull and did not come with potatoes unless ordered as a side so not good value/did not feel a treat. The desserts were good and scone/cakes very good. Probably better for tea/cakes than lunch.

My Wife and I enjoyed a pleasant afternoon tea as a part of our shared Christmas shopping day.

The staff at Fortnum and Masons - Kings Cross ( F&M K+) were ever so friendly and helpful and despite the external 'goings-on' of the external travellers, we were able to really enjoy the atmosphere of the seated area at F&M K+ and we were made to feel appreciated by the team.

I would happily recommend F&M K+ to anyone who wants to treat themselves to to a touch of class now and then, or who wants to spoil themselves (or a loved one) to a treat.

I had my afternoon tea here, overall experience is good. Staff was helpful - (1) arranged earlier seating to my original booking; (2) offered me a new pot of tea after my original one was done and made good recommendations according to my preferences. Tea is nice, but food has quite some room for improvement, especially the sweets. Love the strawberry preserves that come with the scones, but the scone itself fall apart too easily.

Went for brunch. Food was over priced for a very average breakfast with little flavour. The coffee was burnt and the waiter didn't say one word to us throughout. Very poor.
