Michelin-starred celebrity pub chef Tom Kerridge will be opening a new restaurant, his first site in London, later this year.

The restaurant, which will be at the Corinthia Hotel London in Westminster, central London, aims to be a relaxed British brasserie-style dining room.

It will be situated on the site that is currently Massimo, on the ground floor of the hotel, with a separate direct entrance off Northumberland Avenue, and a new and updated interior design.

Kerridge said: “We are incredibly excited about this opportunity to bring a bit of what we are doing in Marlow to London."

Modern, exciting cooking

He added: “Corinthia Hotel London is one of the city’s most prestigious hotels and we are looking forward to doing what we do best – quality British cooking that is modern and exciting.

“We will be taking inspiration from our Michelin-starred pub the Coach, and the Butcher’s Tap, as well as our first venture, the two Michelin-starred the Hand & Flowers.”

Kerridge was the “perfect partner” for the hotel company to open a business with, according to Corinthia Hotel London managing director Thomas Kochs.

He said: “It is important to us to be an integral part of the city and for our London and international guests to experience true British hospitality."

'Incredible experience'

Kochs added: “When we met Kerridge, we knew he was the perfect partner to open a restaurant together. We admire his approach to food, restaurants and his spirit of hospitality. I am confident that together we will create an incredible dining experience.”

This comes after plans for Kerridge to open a restaurant at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower in Knightsbridge, west London were shelved​ last year.

The chef was set to manage a renovated Rib Room Bar & Restaurant and operate it as a stand-alone site.

However, Jumeirah owner Dubai Holdings appeared to have changed its intentions for the venue and the renovation, which was due to accompany the relaunch under the celebrity chef had not taken place.
