Marcus Wareing has closed The Gilbert Scott restaurant at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel as its lease ‘naturally expired’ after a decade of trading.

The high profile chef said that it was always the plan to operate out of the space for a maximum of 10 years and, as that milestone has been reached, it had been decided not to extend the lease.

Named after the architect behind the imposing Victorian Gothic King’s Cross hotel, The Gilbert Scott launched in 2011 with a menu that celebrated modern British classics and revived historical recipes. 

Dishes included devilled Cornish mackerel, buttermilk and pickled shallot; Creedy Carver duck breast, salt baked parsley root, quince and black pudding; and nutmeg and custard tart and crème fraîche sorbet. 

Designed by David Collins, the restaurant was among London's grandest dining spaces with a look that was 'contemporary while acknowledging the significance of its surroundings'.

The arc shaped dining room has hand painted ceilings with marble and gold leaf detail, complementing the building’s Victorian Gothic architecture and referencing historic grand railway stations. 

The 120-cover restaurant and 52-seat George Bar was originally helmed by the Masterchef judge’s protégé Chantelle Nicholson. 

Wareing will reopen his flagship restaurant Marcus, in Knightsbridge, on 17 May with ‘a fresh new menu and exciting development plans for the imminent future’.
