Harden's says

Formerly chef at Cliveden, André Garrett moved to The Corinthia in January 2019, to oversee all of the food at the hotel (except Kerridge's Bar & Grill), from The Northall to room service.

Summary

“Fine if you’re staying in the hotel, but not a destination restaurant”, is a common verdict on this “elegant” chamber, which is currently most often tipped by non-residents as a “perfect business lunch venue”: “comfortable, with good food, and you’re always well looked-after”. It’s an impression the management of this beautiful five-star hotel, near the Embankment, is keen to change, however, and the arrival of André Garrett at the stoves from Cliveden in late-2018 was a statement of intent to zhoosh things up, as they have done with Kerridge’s (see also). Since André’s arrival its food rating is, in fact, little-changed (good but unmemorable), but perhaps that’s all about to change: in a June 2019 interview with trade website ‘Big Hospitality’, he promises ‘something big’ including a name change, refurb, and a new dedicated restaurant entrance.

Summary

Overshadowed by the opening of Kerridge’s Bar & Grill, opinions were more split this year on the hotel’s plush ‘other’ dining room – an “elegant” (“slightly cavernous”) space with orange leather seating and “well-spaced tables”. Practically all reports are of “excellent”, “traditional” cooking, but one former fan felt it “had become more noticeably overpriced since the last visit” and to another sceptic: “the food’s OK, but I’m not sure how much the hotel values the place other than for serving in-house guests”.

Summary

Given its “giant” and – to many tastes – “wonderful” interior, this plush five-star hotel dining room near Trafalgar Square is surprisingly “not on the radar”, and especially “if you want somewhere with understated class in which to do business”, and with “good-quality modern British cuisine”, it can be ideal. On the debit side, “some dishes lack oomph”, and, particularly when empty, it can “lack ambience” (“it felt like we were eating in a provincial railway station waiting room”).

Summary

This “beautifully appointed venue oozes class and luxury” and not only is its “great location near Whitehall ideal for working lunches and client dinners” but is “big enough to maintain a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere, however much business is being conducted”. The cooking? – it has “a fair amount of flair”.

"Had the pleasure of being invited for breakfast by our friends who were staying there. Certainly the one of the best breakfast I have every experienced. Wonderful combination of exotic fruits & yogurts. The full English Breakfast was cooked to perfection"
