Seafood fans, forks at the ready. On 12 June, The Goring in London’s Belgravia will open Siren, a brand new restaurant specialising in all things seafood with a menu courtesy of Michelin-starred chef Nathan Outlaw.
The first new restaurant at the hotel in more than 109 years, Siren has been designed to offer a more relaxed dining destination inspired by the Goring family’s strong ties to Cornwall.
Siren will showcase the best of Cornish produce, with chef Nathan Outlaw creating simple yet elegant seafood dishes. The bright, welcoming restaurant will command views over The Goring’s majestic secluded garden.
On the menu, think exquisite starters such as Cured monkfish, ginger, fennel and yoghurt and Cuttlefish black pudding, apple and kohlrabi. A concise list of main courses will include Turbot herbed and battered with warm tartare sauce and Red mullet with devilled shrimp butter and chicory.
These will sit alongside a wide range of daily specials that reflect the freshest fish available direct from Cornwall each day, such as Lobster grilled over fire with herbs and garlic and Grilled whole monkfish for two to share.
Nostalgic English flavours will be reinvented in desserts including Gooseberry pavlova with custard ice cream and Strawberry tart with yoghurt sorbet.
Alongside, foodies are also invited to visit the hotel’s newly revamped watering hole. The Goring Bar will become a key player in London’s thriving bar scene, transformed into a chic, lively space and offering a new collection of signature cocktails designed by Bar Manager Tiago Mira.
Reflecting The Goring’s dedication to presenting an impeccably English experience, the cocktail list will focus on British spirits and will incorporate a wide variety of herbs sourced from The Goring’s own garden.
A grand piano will take pride of place in the newly designed space with a resident pianist providing live entertainment and enhancing the bar’s position as a true Belgravia destination.
The architecture and interior design for Siren and The Goring Bar have been led by the inimitable Russell Sage, who has worked with many renowned British designers and craftspeople to create an eccentric, uplifting space.
Cornish inspirations are felt throughout, with features such as a hand-crafted plasterwork wall, separating the bar from the restaurant and depicting mythical sea creatures and marine life.
The Goring’s garden has also been instrumental to the design, with the glass structure of the restaurant allowing the indoor and outdoor spaces to be linked throughout the seasons.
Jekka McVicar, the leading herb expert and RHS Vice President, has led a complete redesign of The Goring’s garden, planting more than one hundred different herbs that will be incorporated into both dishes and cocktails in Siren and The Goring Bar.
