Food and drink
The menu gives a cheeky Irish wink to Corrigan’s humble rural upbringing, with dishes such as ‘ham and eggs’ (duck ham, fried duck egg and pig’s trotter ratatouille) and crubbeens (deep-fried pig’s trotter meat) served with pickled beetroot. It’s a great place to enjoy dishes for sharing, such as a kilo rib of beef with béarnaise sauce, or grouse pie with cabbage and girolles. I’d like to eat my way through the dessert list but can’t resist the cherry bakewell soufflé. The international wine list is strong on biodynamic wines and small, independent producers.
Streamlined comfort, with a clubby vibe and customers full of excited anticipation.
Not as jolly as you might hope from the chef’s public persona.
Just off a busy Park Lane.
Weekday set lunches are great value at £27 for three courses including a 250ml carafe of wine; the Sunday roast menu costs the same but demands a £10 supplement for rib of beef. Main courses from the à la carte are £22.50-£38; if you’re watching the expenditure, go easy on side dishes as they’re a pricy £4.20-£7.
