The Booking Office BarLocated within the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, in what used to be the ticket office of St Pancras Station, The Booking Office Bar takes its inspiration from the days when the hotel first opened with punches and drinks recreated from the Victorian era and served in hand?made copper punch bowls. Opened in 1873, the Midland Grand Hotel, as it was originally called, launched at the height of a mixed drink explosion. Alongside revived Victorian cocktails and punches are ales by Meantime beers which arrive in pewter tankards. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Booking Office's all day menu offers a range of daily specials from braised beef cheeks to Lancashire hot pot. But most striking of all are the dramatically high ceilings of George Gilbert Scott's interior, updated with the addition of a 29 metre-long bar and modern sofas and armchairs. Guardian writer Sally Shalam was impressed by the ornate brickwork and arched windows describing it as, "surely the most inspiring new public space in London". And, if you head up to the platform level bar, you can enjoy al fresco dining while watching the Eurostar come and go.
