Now Essex lad Tom Booton has the chance to […]

We simply adore Corrigan’s Mayfair. Think quintessential British and Irish cuisine fused with seasonal produce and chef Richard’s culinary prowess, so good in fact that we return time and time again to catch a taste of that Irish charm.

Set to open in September, his new venture will sit just off buzzy Old Street and, we’re told, will venture deeper into seasonal influences with a a direct connection to the chef’s farm at Virginia Park Lodge […]
