Within a “luxurious and pampering” five star, the “unpretentious but stylish setting” of TV-star Tom Kerridge’s high-ceilinged chamber provides a “wonderful” yet relaxed atmosphere to suit most types of occasion and the place is “always busy”. However, the bill for the posh brasserie fare is “eye-watering” – to fans “pricey but terrific”, but critics opine that “some gastropubs do this better for half the cost… but then again you are in The Corinthia”. Top Tip – unbelievably good-value set lunch, for £15 per person.

“A little bit of Marlow on Embankment”, say fans of TV-Tom’s London HQ: a “smooth operation”, which occupies a vast, atmospheric chamber within one of London’s most glamorous five stars (well, if it’s good enough for Ivanka…). The posh brasserie food, overseen by chef Nick Beardshaw, is “quite heavy and meaty” and fans say “while it’s a bit pricey, you will have an enjoyable meal”. On the downside, there’s a disappointed minority for whom the atmosphere “is very hotel dining room” and who see this as “another disappointing experience from a TV-star branded establishment”.

TV-star Tom’s first London outpost – a wonderfully impressive-looking brasserie in a happening five-star near Embankment – wows many reporters thanks to the “lovely dining room”, “delightful and varied menu” and “an appeal that extends to all ages, from 15 to 75”. (It also incorporates in the same space “a good bar for a quick meet-up pre-theatre”). Ratings came under pressure this year, with a number of reporters finding the experience “massively overpriced” for “high-quality gastropub-level food at eye-watering prices”. For an equal number, though, it’s an investment well made and “a firm favourite”.

TV-star Tom Kerridge “has clearly tried to bring a touch of his Marlow pub, The Hand & Flowers to the formal and plush surroundings of the Corinthia” with this much-awaited, late-2018 opening. This massive and potentially “cavernous” chamber has now been successfully cosied-up from its former incarnation as Massimo (RIP), with a big bar area; “clubby” dark decor; and with “rotisseries and meat-maturing cabinets lining one side of the room”. “The food, likewise, is a little more hearty and traditional – with a Kerridge twist – than the expected, hotel-fine-dining experience”. “Prices, however, remain very much high end”, and diners are slightly divided on the overall outcome. A few critics feel the experience “doesn’t match the hype”, and is “a mismatch of average pub grub with one of London’s most exclusive hotels”. For a big majority of diners, though, it “fires on all cylinders”, combining an “impressive-but-relaxed room” with “suitably professional but informal service” and “interesting and delicious” cooking of a type in line with TK’s celebrity persona: “it was probably the most expensive fish ’n’ chips I have ever had, but I can’t wait to go back!” Top Tip – well spaced tables help make it good for less formal business occasions.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"Stunning special dishes only matched by the very high prices. Only a few people in for the lunch service so a bit soulless which was a shame."
