The Goring in London’s Belgravia is set to open a new restaurant, named Siren, on 12th June, whilst also relaunching The Goring Bar.
Siren will be the first new restaurant at the hotel in more than 109 years, with CEO Jeremy Goring looking to create a second more casual dining option; a seafood restaurant inspired by the Goring family’s strong ties to Cornwall.
Meanwhile, The Goring Bar will provide both hotel guests and visitors with a lively new destination for cocktails, food and entertainment.
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.
Alongside Siren, 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.
The Cornish inspiration for the project will be realised in 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.
