Part of London’s rich history, the new Booking Office Restaurant and Bar of the St Pancras Renaissance Grand Hotel, lives up to its glamorous past. The Booking Office pays more than a nod to the original Midland Grand Hotel, opened in 1873 and at the forefront of a burgeoning fashion for mixed drinks, not only in its menu of drinks recreated from long forgotten recipes but in its surroundings, proudly displaying all the grandiose features of one of the capital’s most stunning buildings. In these talking point surroundings, alongside these wonderful drinks, Booking Office guests dine from a menu of English dishes, including unpretentious breakfasts and a la carte selections which impressively combine the casual and the refined using high quality British sourced ingredients. From business breakfasts to drinks and nibbles with friends, the Booking Office Bar and Restaurant is a statement location where food, drinks and service is guaranteed to ring your bell.

If you are expecting to sit inside a restaurant forget it. There is none. The magnificent Hotel itself of course is world class, but you won't experience any of it if you come to eat. Even the hotel residents don't eat here. Don't be misled by the name. If you like to be overlooked by busy commuters texting on their phone as you see trains pull out and sit out on the platform tarmac, this is the place for you. Alternatively you can sit inside in the bar area with high ceilings, rubbing shoulders with travellers and local workers and lots of noise but not a knife or fork in site, you have to ask, it's more of a ‘pub lunch’ arrangement. I wanted a quiet dinner for two. Upon questioning, I was told that fine dining was available at a separately owned restaurant within the hotel – Gilbert Scott's. They booked a table for me there and that gets a 5* rating from me and my wholehearted recommendation for service, wine and food. Had a wonderful evening. As for The Platform, it really is. Fine if you want a coffee or fine sandwich before your train.
