Searcy’s at St Pancras International: Fish and Fizz + Summer Solstice

SEEN loves walking around the newly developed King’s Cross area and especially St Pancras station. The traveller is spoilt for choice these days with places to eat and relax. Even if you’re not travelling anywhere St Pancras International Station is a destination in its own right for shopping and eating.


SEEN is naturally keen to try a new dining concept that Searcys St. Pancras Restaurant & Bar will present for rail travellers this summer. Located in the grand King’s Cross St. Pancras station, the ‘Gateway to Europe’, Searcys St Pancras Restaurant and Bar boasts new delicious dishes for those looking to fuel up before the Eurostar whisks them away.

A sleekly designed menu features icons alongside the offerings, meaning that at a quick glance, diners can choose express dishes if their departure is looming. There are also icons to identify healthy, signature and classically 1920s dishes. The menu is printed in French on its reverse to cater for diners from both sides of the channel.

Summertime at Searcys St. Pancras sees a Fizz & Fish Friday campaign launch, as well as a special evening on 21st June for a Summer Solstice Wine Dinner to celebrate the longest day of the year. Hopefully the warm weather will go on to make this a truly memorable occasion.

Celebrate THAT Friday Feeling at Searcys St Pancras Restaurant & Bar with Head Chef Colin Layfield’s signature fish pie, made with seasonal seafood, and two glasses of Searcys Selected Cuvée. The generous pie comes loaded with flaky, sustainably sourced fish and is topped with moreishly creamy mash. How very British.

And if that wasn’t enough, Searcys St. Pancras Restaurant & Bar welcomes you for an evening of Great British deliciousness to help you really make the most of the longest day of the year. Hosted by Master of Culinary Arts Joel Claustre, the event starts with something sparkling, and goes on to include a three-course menu, thoughtfully created by Head Chef Colin Layfield.

Cornish rump of lamb, artichokes, shallots, rosemary, feta 1

Prawn Cocktail


It all looks delicious and a great way to enjoy time spent in this iconic area, whether you’re visiting or passing through.

My Furry Lady: the Art of Marion Peck at Dorothy Circus Gallery
