Unless you were off Instagram all last week, you can hardly have escaped the opening of Kerridge's Bar & Grill at The Corinthia London. In advance of our upcoming full Test Drive we popped back there last weekend to have a crack at the bar menu.
There's actually quite a large, separate bar at the restaurant with its own bar snack menu. And given how busy the actual restaurant was on Saturday night, this could be an easier, entry-level way to try out Kerridge's food in London.
Here's what we tried:
As for drinks, we enjoyed a carafe of Petale de Rose £30 - and tried two of the cocktails - a Buena Vista and Raspberry Negroni. The wine was very good and the cocktails weren't bad at all but they weren't on quite the same level as the hotel's other bar Bassoon (run by Michael Sager and Marcis Dzelzainis) where we recently tried a superb Meadowsweet Martini (£12)
You don't need to reserve for the bar, so it's definitely worth popping in to check out the bar snacks, particularly if you're still trying to score a table at the main restaurant.
