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.
Harden's survey result
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”.
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”).
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”.
“No need to worry about the office bean counters getting stressed over pricey client lunches” if you entertain at this “very classy”-looking brasserie, near Embankment; “for part of such an extravagant 5-star hotel” it’s “not too expensive” (set lunch in particular) and the grub’s very “decent”.
The Northall, Corinthia Hotel Restaurant Diner Reviews
"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"
