What was built as The Midland Grand Hotel, is now the St Pancras Renaissance - and it's atmospheric main dining room and bar named after the hotel's original designer.
The menu, designed with input from top-chef Marcus Wareing, harks back to the our ideas of the days of Mrs Beeton with perhaps starters such as 'Onion & Cider Soup'; 'Crispy Pig's Head with Laverbread Mayonnaise, Pickled Cockles & Sea Herbs' and 'Purple Sprouting Broccoli with Hazelnuts & Brown Butter Hollandaise' offered as well as more modern dishes such as 'Tiger Prawns with Lemon & Garlic' and 'Dorset Snails with Bone Marrow & Garlic Butter' on a winter listing.
These followed by the likes of 'Pigeon in a Pudding with Mushrooms, Smoked Bacon & Onions'; 'Mrs Beeton's Barbecue Chicken with Baby Gem Salad'; 'Smoked Cheddar Macaroni' and 'Glamorgan Tart - with Caerphilly, Leeks, Mustard & Herbs' - although here again 'London Pride Battered Cod with Mushy Pea Mayonnaise' and 'Home-Made Beef Burger with Braised Oxtail, Fries & Salad' creep in.
Puds are mainly traditional, with 'Eccles Cakes with Cheddar Cheese Ice Cream'; 'Coconut Rice Pudding with Grilled Pineapple, Mango Sorbet & Macaroon' and 'Sticky Toffee Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream & Caramel Sauce' popular choices.
