Anyone seeking awe-inspiring grandeur for a private dining event will be well-pleased with what’s on offer at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. The Gilbert Scott’s main dining room is magnificent, but for those needing privacy, there are two options for private dining here: the Private Dining Room, which seats up to 18, and the Chef’s Table, which seats up to 10.
The Gilbert Scott’s Private Dining Room is a sophisticated space complete with an ornate fireplace, high ceilings and double-height windows through which natural light floods throughout the day. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, such as a birthday or engagement, or you require a private room for a business meeting or team lunch, you and your guests can expect comfortable seats, attentive staff and, of course, exquisite food.
A range of seasonal menus are available, so whether you’re looking for a simple three course lunch with two choices per course or Marcus’ four-course menu, or even a bespoke menu, you won’t be disappointed. The head sommelier will be on hand to recommend pairings for your meal, either working to a budget or by creating a bespoke wine pairing selection from The Gilbert Scott’s impressive 350-bin collection.
Examples of dishes you might encounter on Marcus Wareing’s seasonal menu include starters such as crispy lamb sweetbread with shiitake mushroom, tarragon and mustard while mains might be something along the lines of organic lamb rump or white leek risotto. Beautifully-presented desserts could be anything from Tahitian vanilla crème brûlée to chocolate nougat with salted caramel and hazelnut.
Those looking for something a little more immersive, perhaps to impress a client or simply as a treat for the foodie in your life, will love the Chef’s Table experience at The Gilbert Scott. Overlooking the restaurant’s engine room, the crescent-shaped Chef’s Table provides the ultimate dining experience. Marcus Wareing’s accomplished team of chefs showcase their skills by creating a delicious surprise tasting menu for you and your guests in front of your very eyes.
