While the décor and general atmosphere are lovely, the service at this bar was inept. At £14 a cocktail, one would not expect to wait twenty minutes and have to ask repeatedly about the order. There were many staff running around, but little sense of...More

We researched this online where it appears to be called George's Bar. On arriving at the hotel nobody had heard of that but they directed us to the Gilbert Scott bar which, apparently, is what it is now called. Apart from that, everything was perfect....More

After a day's sightseeing around the city, this place is just a perfect way to end your day while waiting for your train. Why wait in a platform cafe, when you can sit down and relax and enjoy ambiance and surroundings of the Gilbert Scott....More

We had not visited St Pancras station since it was modernised. We wanted a drink so popped into the Gilbert Scott for a glass of wine and a non alcoholic cocktail. The atmosphere was good, nice and relaxing we were not rushed. Friendly, efficient service.

After a full day of sightseeing, this was a lovely place to slow down, enjoy the ambiance, and have a civilized drink. The staff are top-notch, and this haven is inside a hotel that looks like it came straight out of Harry Potter. Cheers!

We’ve been to the Gilbert Scott before for cocktails, which is what it’s best for. A cosy atmosphere with a great cocktail menu. We decided to try the afternoon tea and were very disappointed. For £40 ahead we expected something a little luxurious, but it...More

Whether you fancy a classical cocktail or something with a twist (with or without alcohol), you can go the the Gilbert Scott bar. Staff is nice and helpful and the bar bites are very tasty (cashew nuts with truffle!!).
