Corinthia Hotel London has revealed more details about the Tom Kerridge restaurant that is set to take up residence at the five-star hotel this September.
The luxury London hotel will open the doors to the Michelin-starred chef’s first eatery in the capital, which will be named Kerridge’s Bar & Grill when it launches in three months’ time.
Kerridge’s Bar & Grill will be a relaxed brasserie-style dining room with adjacent bar open all day.
The restaurant and bar will be located on the site which was previously Massimo, on the ground floor of the hotel, with a separate direct entrance off Northumberland Avenue, and a new and updated interior design by David Collins Studio.
The grand, high-ceiling restaurant space will seat 90 covers and be furnished with a mixture of leather upholstered dining chairs and deep button-backed banquettes with a dark green and burgundy colour palette.
Within the main restaurant space there will be a rotisserie bar.
Inspired by the menu at The Coach in Marlow, Kerridge’s relaxed pub restaurant, the rotisserie will have a daily changing dish on the menu each day.
Some of the walls of the main restaurant will feature fridges showcasing hanging meat supplied by Kerridge’s own butchers, The Butcher’s Tap in Marlow.
The new head chef will be Nick Beardshaw, who has worked with Kerridge for many years, initially at The Hand and Flowers as sous chef and more recently as head chef of The Coach in Marlow.
In addition to the main restaurant, there will be a private dining room leading from a door to the left of the bar. This will seat 18 people around a bespoke table made by Custom Timber Works.
“We are incredibly excited about opening Kerridge’s Bar & Grill at Corinthia Hotel London,” says Kerridge. “Work has begun on the design and the space, and Nick and I, along with the whole team, are enjoying creating a menu that will befit such a stunning room.”
Thomas Kochs, managing director of Corinthia Hotel London, comments: “Every day I work with Tom Kerridge and his team, and Simon Rawlings from David Collins Studio, the anticipation builds of what I know will be a fantastic opening and a wonderful new addition to London’s restaurant scene. I look forward to September when we can finally welcome guests to this new dining experience.”
