The Gilbert Scott is the main restaurant at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel and is named after Sir George Gilbert Scott, the hotel’s architect. Brunch is served from 10-12:30 at the weekend and, as I’d been wanting to go and have a look around for a while, it seemed like the perfect opportunity.
The brunch menu is small and simple – a granola and yoghurt pot to begin with (very tasty, and just the right level of sweetness) and then a choice of three dishes – the Omelette Arnold Bennett, ‘The Giles’ (egg, bacon and toast) or Eggy Bread (banana, bacon, maple syrup). A tea, coffee or fresh juice is also included. I went for the omelette which was good, I enjoyed the smoked haddock but the texture was too runny (hence why it came in a separate dish rather than directly on the plate). My friend had the eggy bread which looked scrumptious and was apparently very filling. I used to be skeptical of combining bacon and banana until I was converted by brunch at Kopapa. Overall a perfect start to a Saturday of Christmas shopping!
