The restaurant, which is named after the building’s original architect – George Gilbert Scott – will seat 120 people, with a bar seating a further 52.

It will be located in the old coffee room in the west wing of St Pancras, and the project will see the original suspended ceilings removed, according to a spokeswoman for the developer, Manhattan Loft Corporation.

David Collins says, ‘Our design is a subtle intervention. Heritage buildings need to be considered carefully: the furniture, the palette, the artwork – the restaurant needs to be contemporary and acknowledge the significance of its surroundings.

‘Given the location of the hotel and the scale of the restaurant, the restaurant will subtly reference historic grand railway stations.’

The arc shaped dining room is said to feature hand painted ceilings, marble and gold leaf detail to complement the building’s Victorian Gothic Architecture, according to The St Pancras Renaissance Hotel.

The Gilbert Scott is due to open next month.
