Corrigan's Mayfair


| Mayfair, Belgravia

This is Irish celeb chef Richard Corrigan's main restaurant in London, and one where much of the produce comes from his own farm in Ireland. Expect hearty food and also a damned fine bar attached to it too, called Dickie's, where the drinks have a distinct Irish flavour.

“If you are trying to woo an heiress and need to lunch her father, I can think of no better venue. And if by sad chance that will never happen, come here and imagine it, over oysters.” READ REVIEW

“Even the smallest components of each dish are carefully crafted. Crubbeens (deep-fried crumbed pig’s trotter) came with lovely pickled beetroot; oyster fritters with a sensational apple and fennel salad.” READ REVIEW

"It’s rugged-sounding stuff, tamed but not egregiously Park-Laned. It’s what restaurants are about just now, and this is among the best of them. It’s certainly the most ballsy, the most shoulder-thumping, the heartiest, the most Irish." READ REVIEW

"My friend, who chose saddle of hare with roast pumpkin and sprout tops, where a thin layer of pastry made an unannounced appearance, described it as “a miniature rustic beef Wellington, the texture and density of the meat akin to the best fillet steak, the flavour rich but not oppressively gamey”. And in case I hadn’t got the point, he added: “It really was a top treat.”" READ REVIEW

"The menu had me groaning with pleasure – not a nice sound, believe me – but then you don’t see dishes like Game Broth with Livers on Toast or Fried Chorizo, Fennel and Apple or a Salad of Game with Romesco Sauce every day." READ REVIEW
