Stephanie Cavagnaro reviews Eurostar’s London to Brussels route

Details: London St Pancras to Brussels-South, Business Premier.

Journey time: 2h

Seats: A benefit of Business Premier for solo travellers is the 1×2 seating arrangement. The seats were a bit dated, but at 26 inches wide — and with plenty of privacy and legroom — they made for a pleasant journey.

Food & drink: Business menus produced with Michelin-starred chef Raymond Blanc range from three-course meals to lighter snacks, all served on china plates. On a 16:04 service, I opted for a mini bottle of Côtes du Rhône 2013 and an afternoon tea of cakes with jam and clotted cream, plus a tasty caramelised onion and goat’s cheese tart.

Entertainment: Complimentary newspapers and magazines were handed out before departure.

Service: Despite a quiet carriage, unhurried staff took some time to clear my tray after I finished my meal — but they were otherwise attentive and friendly.

What else: Eurostar’s refurbished e300 train serves the Brussels route, while the new e320 trains, featuring free wi-fi and ergonomically-designed seating, will cover the Paris route.

Last word: Efficient and comfortable — all you could reasonable want.
