Review on Siren at The Goring
The Siren was unveiled in July 2019 in The Goring located in prestigious Belgravia, a favourite amongst the Royal family, it's the only hotel to have been granted a Royal Warrant. The restaurant is under the direction of two-starred Michelin chef Nathan Outlaw, who operates two restaurants in Cornwall, together with hotelier Jeremy Goring, whose family also has strong ties with Cornwall. The restaurant will sit alongside the hotel's other restaurant the Michelin-starred Dining Room.
The stunning interiors have been created by award winning Russell Sage Studio set within the orangery, a glass ensconced space with beautiful views of the tranquil garden. RHS Vice President and leading herb expert, Jekka McVicar has devised the garden which has been planted with over 100 herbs, which will be used in both the food and their signature cocktails. Floral upholstered chairs are set against marble-topped tables, overhead there's lobster-pot chandeliers, and decorating the wall is artwork from 19th-century German marine biologist Ernst Haecke, reflecting the illustrations of monocellular organisms. Other references to the sea can be found in the handcrafted plasterwork by Somerset-based sculptor Geoffrey Preston, where mermaids and sea creatures divide the restaurant from the bar.
Ultra-fresh seafood is sourced from Cornwall, with a menu showcasing daily specials to reflect the very best from the day boats. Open your account with lobster and pea tart or maybe Cornish crab risotto, before moving on to the likes of turbot herbed and battered served with warm tartare sauce, or a non-piscine alternative could include dry-aged steak, tarragon and anchovy sauce and mushrooms. Desserts bring on board delights like raspberry choux bun paired dark chocolate sauce or strawberry tart and yoghurt sorbet.
