Kerridge's Bar & Grill

“Around me, in our very headquarters in the Hotel Metropole, disorder had broken out. Doors banged. Feet clattered down corridors […] the strict, war-straitened, regulated streets of London had become a triumphant pandemonium.”

- Winston Churchill’s account of the 1918 Armistice

Corinthia London is one of the capital's true grand hotels. Originally the Hotel Metropole, it was the largest hotel in Europe when it first opened in 1885, welcoming visitors from the Home Counties and the Continent as they arrived at Charing Cross. Since then it has hosted aviators and mountaineers, adventurers and spies, the Midnight Follies and Buffalo Bill Cody. During World Wars I and II, the building was requisitioned by the War Office; Winston Churchill served as Minister for Munitions here from 1917 to 1919.

After lying vacant for many years, this legendary building was restored to its former glory and reopened by Corinthia Hotels in 2011. Today one of the city's leading luxury hotels, Corinthia London blends grandeur and heritage with contemporary design moments.

The hotel is located a few moments’ walk from the Thames Embankment, Whitehall and Trafalgar Square, making it the perfect base to explore the West End.

The Team

Kerridge's Bar & Grill

Tom Kerridge

"I grew up in the west of England but my grandparents and my father were originally from south east London. I remember coming here as a child and finding the energy exhilarating. Also, my Dad’s car was actually a London black cab, so even when I was being dropped off at school in Gloucester, I felt a connection to the city.

"With Kerridge’s Bar & Grill, we’re bringing a lot of the heart and soul from our Marlow pubs, but we also want people to feel the energy and excitement of being in an incredible hotel right in the middle of London. It’s a grand dining room but it’s also a fun and engaging space where everyone should feel welcome. Part of the experience is that people will feel a real connection with the food. There are real ales, a meat fridge in the room, bread and cheeses on display and, best of all, a beautiful rotisserie where we grill nearly half the main menu. So you don’t just sit at a table and get served courses, you can immerse yourself into the whole process of lunch and dinner.

"I want people who come here to have a big smile, feel full of brilliant food, and know that they have had a great time and can’t wait to come back."

In October 2017 Beth unveiled new works at Brown Hart Gardens in North Mayfair.
