How did Richard Corrigan end up in The Grosvenor Hotel? Restaurants located in hotels invariably take on the character of the hotel they are part of, sometimes thats a good fit, Gordan Ramsay and Claridges is a good stylistic fit it feels right. I am not sure that Mayfair and Richard Corrigan are made for each other. I should declare up front that I don't like Mayfair, there is much to appreciate about the area for sure, but its not a place I feel either comfortable or relaxed in. The Grosvenor is somewhere I go too frequently for awards dinners of one kind or another, so that doesnt help much either. Staff at the front desk are professional and courteous, although I am not sure that a gentleman should ever be asked for his jacket. The bar area looks like the best place to dine, and its worth remembering should you be on your lonesome one evening strolling down Park Lane, that you can dine at the bar. Unfortunately we were sat in the corner of the restaurant where they forgot to put any lighting, luckily I had bought a torch so was able to order confidently. The food was good without being stunning, the service was extremely slow, it shouldn't take over an hour and half to eat two courses, and consequently I cannot report on the quality of the coffee. Good for taking old relatives as long as they have some decent clothes and most of their own teeth, bad for taking a new wife or young girl friend.
