Hand & Flowers chef and TV star, Tom Kerridge, launched in the capital in September 2018, taking over the magnificent chamber at this five-star hotel between Trafalgar Square and Embankment that was formerly Massimo (RIP), and which has had a makeover care of design agency The Studio. Head chef Nick Beardshaw creates, so we are told, ‘refined British comfort food and reborn classics’ in a brasserie-style format which aims to dispel the stultifying grandeur of its former occupant.
Kerridge’s Bar & Grill Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Sea Bream fillet in the fish and chips, a first for me and a good one."
"Beautiful, proper dining room. Staff attentive. Food was very good indeed - inventive, varied and well-executed. "
"As soon as I heard he was opening a restaurant in London I had to book and finally I sorted out for today The whole experience was as if it was already well on the way to Michelin stardom. I decided to have the a la Carte and spent my time enjoying the decor between courses. Delicious potato skin amuse bouche followed by a stunning terrine (don’t forget to clear the amuse bouche plate before serving the starter). It was delicious with a mayonnaise and soda bread. Main was a wonderful gurnard beautifully cooked with a stunning sauce. Dessert was a mango soufflé with ice cream and vanilla custard all sensational. Serve me cold tap water and it would be perfect. Toilets were in the hotel and beautiful. Bonus was meeting Tom for a second time, he is such a genuine and lovely guy (the waiter told me he is a brilliant caring boss too). Was it worth the trip? Oh yes!!!! Ps go to Hand and Flowers too, you won’t be disappointed."
"Interesting tasty dishes with good combinations of flavours. The only let down was the soufflé . It was very sweet, crisp & not light & fluffy . However everything else was excellent."
"Exceptional value set lunch. Went in wild garlic season. Good move. Relaxed atmosphere for the quality on offer. Brilliant cooking"
"Some small issues with service but thought due to some issues of being new. We address and food quality very good with innovative menu"
"High quality gastro-pub food at eye-watering prices. That could have been just about bearable, had the wine list not been so ludicrously expensive: there was only one (possibly two) claret under £100, in a list that must run to 30 pages. There is no Burgundy under £100. When the sommelier was asked to recommend a Burgundy-style red which would go with fish & chips and steak & chips, he stood there thumbing through the list, offering the advice, “You can drink whatever you like, it doesn’t have to go with the food”. Brilliant. A second sommelier was more helpful, but the recommended wine was a vapid, tanic, undrinkable £66 Italian red. Having sent it back, without it being taken off the bill, we were appalled, on the way out, to see the bottle had been sealed with a Vacuvin stopper, to be, presumably, resold by the glass. Having seen a lot of Tom Kerridge on television, it is hard to believe he has any affinity with this overpriced nonsense."
