On 12 June, The Goring in London’s Belgravia will open a new restaurant named Siren, 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.
The Siren menu will offer 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 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.
From the menu, the elegant Rosehip Royale will see Pimm’s No. 6 Cup combined with Sacred Rosehip Cup and a summer sherbet of strawberries, cucumber, mint and rose, then topped with Champagne. The list will also feature the likes of Garden Gimlet, a floral and layered take on the classic, and The Madness of King George, King George III’s favourite whisky turned into an apple Manhattan. Alongside the cocktails, guests will be able to enjoy bar bites including Lobster scampi with chilli and pepper jam and Crab scones. Those looking for more substantial dishes in The Goring Bar will have options such as The Goring club sandwich and Smoked fish platter with horseradish and lemon.
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.
