    The evening was completely ruined because we arrived to find the restaurant closed for a private party, despite having booked months ago and been sent a reminder by Open Table the day before. Open Table is a restaurant booking service - booking us into one that was closed wasn’t very helpful. The restaurant eventually seated us in the hotel lounge where we were told that the drinks would be free. After the meal (the food was ok, but not great) we found that we were being charged £220 for the ‘free’ drinks. Having got those taken off the bill, the next problem (I know, it’s a long list) was that they couldn’t find a working card machine. Five card machines later we had to run to catch a train, leaving number one daughter on her own to pay the bill for the (disastrous) meal that was supposed to celebrate her and her sister’s birthdays. On the train I looked at the bill and found that (of course) 12 1/2% service was included. Utter disaster from start to finish!

    Food was very disappointing. Starter fish cakes were very small, lacklustre in taste and poorly presented. Lamb shoulder for two @ £56 came with small slices of greasy flatbread and two tiny ramakins of relishes. Monkfish curry was small and tasteless, although the two small pieces of monkfish were cooked perfectly. Service was haphazard and souless. Fantastic venue , decor and building let down by the food and service, which is the whole point of going.

    The menu was disappointing compared with the past. Service was disorganised and slow. Worst still a group of 10 People were allowed to sit at a table set for 4! Which ruined our evening more than a little. Just a little disappointed we had been looking to it for a while.

    Arrived with friends for her birthday to be told we had no booking, despite having confirmation on my phone. Staff made room for us, which was great. Our waiter was fantastic and despite the very slow service for our food, overall we had a great evening. The building & ambience certainly added to that. It was a shame that after asking, nothing arrived for my friends 50th 😔

    Booked online, 1 day before was phoned and reconfirmed my booking, 45 minutes before my booking was informed the restaurant had cancelled my booking for no reason. Immediately phone the restaurant and reconfirmed/rebooked. Arrived at the restaurant and told that my booking had been cancelled. utterly hopeless. Did get a table, in the end, regretted it but the food was overpriced and disappointing.

    We had a booking. It took some time to get attention. Service slow, no avocados and poached eggs available. Kedgeree very good. Very annoying habit of ringing you up to confirm booking. Why do restaurants do this? You have made the booking for a purpose.

    Good deal for the 2 course Sunday meal with a Sunday roast as the main course! The food was tasty and portions were generous! The venue looks a bit old fashioned and dark and lacks atmosphere... needs a modern revamp!

    I arrived on Friday evening at 6:30 with 4 friends. Ordered our meal at 7:00. Starters arrived at 8:00, after we complained. Main course arrived at 9:00 with 2 of the 5 dishes cold. We complained to the Manager, only to be offered some chips. Shocking service and food.

    Food and service was excellent. The only criticism is really that some of the tables are fundamentally flawed. Some of the square tables are too low to even sit underneath them. Me and my party couldn’t slide under the table (and I definitely am small siZed). I ate uncomfortably with my chest 350mm away from the table edge and had a aching back. Please change some of the tables and make sure customers can actually sit at the tables properly. Surely someone has reported this before me

    The meal itself was perfectly okay but nothing to write home about. However, the restaurant itself was very conveniently situated and in a beautiful building. We could not fault the staff, all of whom were exceedingly helpful, polite and professional. Service was prompt but not rushed. All in all, a very pleasant place to eat, especially in a station!

    We had to wait much time to order, get starters, our wine and finally our mains: the only thing that came fast was the bill. Half our food was too salty (mussels) and the rest was acceptable albeit expensive.

    No. The food is very expensive and not very special. The soup was a miniscule amount and not that hot. The bread roll was almost stale and could have been warmed but wasn't. The baby octopus was not crispy and the taramasalata was just salty, no flavour. My partner was not that impressed with her short rib croquette either. On the plus side, the service was friendly. It was drafty in there, but then it is a restored ticket hall with very high ceilings, so I suppose I should expect that.

    I was there at lunchtime. My own food was good but my guest's was very pedestrian - in fact, pedestrian is the word I would use about the menu. The service though was excellent. Wine was good too. I think the venue is an acquired taste - the Victorian architecture and the high ceilings are lovely but I am not sure if they make a good place to eat. My feeling is that the Booking Office is very expensive for what is a mixed bag.

    Just disappointed in lack of food provision - not as stated on menu - vegetarian roast was a veg pie & didn’t provide the mashed potatoes or cranberry jelly - had to ask for horseradish for roast beef !! All left us feeling slightly disappointed with the visit - will not be rushing back anytime soon

    This was a beautiful setting for a catch up with old colleagues. One of our party was arriving from the Eurostar so the location was ideal! Martinis seem to have become a sine qua non of our meetings, and The Booking Office did not disappoint. The service was charming and efficient. One of our party had the burger, which was declared delicious and two opted for the vegetarian and vegan options, of which the roasted cauliflower was beautifully presented, with great flavour and texture. it is not cheap, but then, neither are we! An architecturally impressive space for a memorable evening.

    Delicious food in a relaxed environment. We both ordered steak medium rare-1 sirloin 1 ribeye-both were cooked over-medium well but as service was slow we didn’t have time to send back (took 1hour between sitting and main course arriving-be aware if you are catching a train) Very good quality meat so still very tender despite overcooking Unfortunately didn’t have time for desert/coffee as didn’t have sufficient-took 2 hours for 2 courses However this wouldn’t put be off going back in another occasion
