Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
Richard Corrigan’s “clubby” Mayfair HQ is “an opulent place with fine cuisine”, but also a “manly” and business-friendly destination (“the decor shouts hunting, shooting, fishing!”) “The menu reads as a homage to gutsy, comfort stalwarts, and though the food looks more delicate than you might imagine, there’s nothing dainty about the flavours”. “Great private dining options”.
Richard Corrigan’s “spacious” and dignified Mayfair dining room has long been a business favourite, and – although it’s undeniably pricey – won very solid praise this year for its “top quality” cuisine and service that’s “attentive yet unobtrusive”.
For business dining with “gravitas”, fans tip this “dark and staid” Mayfair dining room, and hail its “superbly presented classic dishes”; the more general view, though, is that the food is “nothing special”, and “madly overpriced” too.
Fans still find Richard Corrigan’s Mayfair dining room “an absolute British gem”, but its performance slid dramatically this year; “heavy-handed” cooking and “eye-watering” prices were key complaints, but “shambolic” service, and a “subdued” ambience also played their part; Monday nights BYO, no corkage!
Corrigan’s Mayfair redefines the concept of quintessential British and Irish cuisine. Fusing seasonal produce with Richard’s unmistakable flair. The menus are inspired by Richard’s humble, rural upbringing- combining 21st century luxury and style with down-to-earth, home-inspired cooking that is reflective OF THE SEASONS. Including - Game certainly, but also foraged vegetables and fruits, and sustainable fish. Why? We want to tell a story, work with natural products which, ultimately are resources. We want to work with the best and that means responsible management. Eating today and thinking about tomorrow.

Corrigan’s Mayfair Restaurant Diner Reviews
"A very good place for a business lunch or dinner. The food is actually good, and they have a very nice, long, bar at the entrance, good for cocktails. Not much ambience, though"
"Just the right balance between fine dining and relaxed atmosphere. Good cocktails and excellent fish."
