Fortnum and Mason - St. Pancras Station
For breakfast, there are the simple pleasures of toast, cereals and porridge as well as more substantial fare such as kedgeree, Welsh Rarebit and Eggs Benedict.
All-dining can be light or hearty as required, with a menu featuring savoury tarts and salads as well as hot meals such as braised venison and fish pie. Champagne, beer and wine are all available, as well as soft drinks, tea and coffee.
Finally, it should go without saying that Afternoon Tea is also on the menu, alongside scones, cake, ice cream and puddings.
The dessert not very well
Outstanding as usual! Thank you!
The new seating arrangement doesn’t work on diners. Very cramped and noisy. Shame as it used to be a favourite venue to meet friends
I like the place and the tea was great. But poached eggs in eggs benedict should have a slightly runny yolk. These did not which I think is a basic prerequisite skill of working in a kitchen. Servers will polite though and I did like the cute little seating area.
We ate in December when it was busy ....there was a cold draft from the main door .... we didn’t mention it as the other tables would have had the same issue and our waiter was lovely .... I didn’t think he could have done anything about it anyway. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast and will definitely dine again when we visit London next time
A bit exposed - like eating at a table on a mini roundabout. Better value teas in more comfortable surroundings to be had in a myriad of other venues.
A perfect stopping off place to refuel before taking the train. Pleasant atmosphere, very attentive staff and the food was good.
I order the prawns salad which is very small in portion. There is too much thousand island dressing and the size of the prawn could hardly be called "king prawns". There is only a few ice lettuce at the bottom and I don't see how one can describe it as "salad". It's literally a dish with no character but just a few tasteless prawns and shredded ice lettuce mixed with thousand island dressing, not dollar for value.
I booked a table in advance but the table was not ready at all. I went to the reception and said that I've made a reservation. I was asked to wait for a minute at the bar counter but I waited for a while. Finally, the staff came over to me and asked if I was okay with the counter even there is an open table. I replied if I could have the table. They were displeased with my answer. After all, I was able to get the table. The other staff was very kind but the staff I encountered first was very unkind. He served me tea without saying a word.
Disappointed to find a smaller seating area. A little disconcerting when shoppers walk between the bar and the seating area. The food and service are very good but the overall ambiance is spoilt by the shoppers.
They did not have the Classic Afternoon Tea set and the lady in assistance was not very helpful.
The food are average-level.
The atmosphere and the service is really nice tho. Nice place to spend some time chatting with friends/family.
Some of the sandwich flavours were nice (the tapenade style one was lovely), but some could be improved.
I didn't appreciate being called 'Madam' almost constantly by staff. It felt not only grating, but quite patronising.
I also especially didn't appreciate the extra service charge that was added to the bill. I had anticipated the price for the afternoon tea in advance (we were only a party of 2), and if I'd known how much it would have been with the extra charge, I probably would have gone elsewhere.
Excellent! Thank you!
I'd fine restaurant.
Great tea and cake. Sandwich are good, so is the scone.
Ne pas passer par Londres sans prendre un afternoon tea chez Fortnum & Mason....voilà l'essentiel
Hector the waiter was just THE BEST!
Recommend him and F&M
Policy not clear, a waitress said yes, but another waiter said no. Staff are not friendly and not helpful. This was our last lunch in London, totally destroyed our good memories of London.
Great food , relaxed atmosphere and great service. Very good value for money.
Excellent breakfast and service. Lovely little high quality cafe
Brilliant, beautiful ‘made with love’ food,
High level of staff etiquette.
Not just about the afternoon tea. Everything on the set menu was good. Impeccable service too.
Best Ceasar salad I have eaten in a long time!
Also, very generous portions. Thank you
2nd time here after 3 years. The experience was not the same but I have to say that the consistency is there which is a remarkable thing. We had the afternoon tea for two which I found overpriced therefore the value is not there.
We came for a posh breakfast for a special birthday weekend in London. The food was lovely. The waiter and waitress were very friendly, and the free gift for my sister’s birthday was a lovely gesture. The only thing I would say was that the staff seemed a little tired, and forgot to bring our second round of drinks. However the waiter was apologetic when he realised and it was still a lovely meal.
This was my second visit and our lunch was excellent.
Attentive service and great food. The menu isn’t vast but it’s well cooked, tasty and excellent value for money.
It was just a little overpriced for what it was. £4.50 for toast?
Great venue, beautifully presentation and not packed so can hear your conversations! Will return
A good experience to have a afternoon tea here, service is nice, also can buy some souvenir here, saving time, we do enjoy this tea time.
Great place, nice service. The only thing was there were many people waiting for the seats, so when we sit there we felt a little bit pressure
Great little restaurant, food and service are fantastic, can be a little noise but to be expected due to location within the station.
Great little oasis of tranquility and refinement in the middle of a buzzing station. Lovely food and drink
A simple but select place, hospitality and service. A very nice moment with my daughter
I gave the noise level as moderate due to a couple with their child at the next table - the child was using a device without head phones and we had that noise (although not altogether loud) throughout our meal.
There was a general relaxed feeling to the restaurant area with quiet staff who were attentive and obliging.
The food was a good standard (as at F&M in Piccadilly) - I had eggs florentine and the eggs were a beautiful golden orange, perfectly cooked.
It did seem a little pricy as we were eating in a station, but the quiet, relaxed feel was like a little oasis away from the anxious travellers and their suitcases.
Great service - very friendly and helpful (I was there with my rather elderly father). He enjoyed the Welsh rarebit and I had good salmon and scrambled eggs. Great crumble for pudding. Importantly we could hear each other and we were away from the crowds. Not cheap but a very good option.
One had a 2 course meal and the other afternoon tea - both excellent
I am a regular at this charming spot which is perfect as a very civilised venue for quiet conversations either for business or simply catching up with friends. The food is light and tasty and the service impeccable. A hidden gem as many people don't notice the restaurant at the back of the shop.
