Corrigan’s Mayfair

At 6pm we met at Corrigan’s Mayfair to start the evening.

We were treated to some delicious champagne and delightful canapés.

Corrigan’s Bar and Restaurant is the home of Chef Patron Richard Corrigan.

Experience Richard Corrigan’s unmistaken flair with incomparable British and Irish cuisine-seasonal, fresh and executed at the expert hands of a team that has great passion for food and excellent service.

Their restaurant boasts four unique private dining rooms perfect for corporate events or a more intimate gathering of friends or family.

LINDSAY ROOM: Capacity 24.

This gold room is capable of hosting a pre-dinner canapé reception, features a concealed flat screen monitor available for presentations or to display a live link in to the kitchen and an iPod docking system that allows for your own personal use.

CHEF’S TABLE: Capacity 14.

Take your guests through a culinary journey with the option of either a six-course tasting menu or a three-course a la carte. The room comes with your own service team and showcases the best of what Corrigan’s offers, which can also be specifically tailored to your tastes or needs. If you’re looking to add something extra special to your occasion, they also offer cookery demonstrations, wine tastings and the recently introduced feasting menus.


This room is climate controlled and separated from the pass via a thick glass sliding door and also a thick velvet curtain for private moments. This is the table most requested by their most discrete customers and has seen big contracts signed and many engagement rings exchanged. This popular room has become synonymous with private dining in Mayfair, its proximity to the action on the pass and the chefs makes it quite unique.

THE POET’S CORNER: Capacity 10.

This unique semi-private dining space is perfect for an inspirational lunch meeting or celebratory dinner. Similar to their chef’s table, you can choose a six-course tasting menu or three course a la carte menu made from the freshest seasonal market produce.
