Richard Corrigan’s passion for seasonal food is matched only by his enthusiasm for ingredients. Specialties such as Farmhouse terrine, Cornish crab salads and braised lamb shoulder, duck leg, smoked bacon with white beans can be seen on the Corrigan’s menu.

Open from 6pm until 3am Sunday to Wednesday and until 4am Thursday to Saturday, the bar boasts a mouth-watering cocktail menu, created by Riccardo Andreotti (previously at Corrigan’s and Galvin) and his talented team.

Signature cocktails take their influence from the four seasons; spring, summer, autumn and winter and are updated regularly. One of our favourite signatures is the Raspberry & Tarragon Spritz a delicious blend of raspberry infused vodka, fresh tarragon, raspberries, homemade raspberry jam and Champagne.

SLEEP: Coworth Park, Blacknest Rd, Ascot, SL5 7SE

The Dorchester Collection’s country retreat, Coworth Park, is a 45 minute drive from our Sunseeker London offices, located near to Ascot and bordering on Windsor Great Park, this country house hotel is ideal for that night away from the buzz of the city.

The estate includes an award-winning eco-luxury spa with indoor pool and three restaurants including The Spatisserie, brasserie-style food in The Barn and elegant dining at Restaurant Coworth Park. It is the only UK hotel to feature its own polo fields, which are managed by Guards Polo Club, offering a full programme of polo tournaments throughout the season and polo lessons catering to all levels.
