Tom Kerridge

Tom Kerridge will open his first London restaurant, Kerridge’s Bar & Grill, at the Corinthia Hotel in London this September.

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.

Within the main restaurant space there will be a striking rotisserie bar which will roast large joints of meat, fish and some root vegetables in front of diners.

Inspired by the menu at The Coach in Marlow, 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 Tom’s own butchers, The Butcher’s Tap in Marlow.

Tom will bring with him head chef Nick Beardshaw, who has worked with him for many years, initially at The Hand and Flowers as sous chef and more recently as head chef of The Coach in Marlow, and has been integral in winning the Michelin stars at both the sites.

Kerridge’s Bar & Grill will also have a separate and significant bar area divided from the dining room by a partition of antique mirror panels.

There will be seating in the form of curved banquettes and large lounge seats finished in a burgundy leather, as well as the option of taking a selection of high stools at the marble bar.

The bar will serve cocktails along with an extensive list of English wines, Champagnes and of course ales and lagers on tap, which will be visible in a bespoke glass cellar as you enter the restaurant.

In addition, there will be a Private Dining Room leading from a door to the left of the bar.  This will seat 18 people and guests will be able to enjoy an exclusive dining experience whilst watching chefs prepare and cook dishes right in front of them.

Tom Kerridge says: “We are incredibly excited about opening Kerridge’s Bar & Grill at Corinthia Hotel London. 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.”
