André Garrett leaves Cliveden House

The  Staff Canteen

After five years at Cliveden House as executive chef, André Garrett has announced he is leaving and joining the Corinthia Hotel in January.

Award-winning chef André Garrett is to leave Cliveden House where he has been executive chef for the past five years to take on the same role at the Corinthia Hotel London in January.

André’s remit will include the entire hotel, overseeing banqueting events, room service, afternoon tea, breakfast, Spa and Garden Lounge, and all bar food menus as well as The Northall restaurant.

André said: “Corinthia Hotel London celebrates exceptional food and drink, which is why I relished the opportunity to join this dynamic team. I am excited to return to London and to be working alongside Thomas on this new culinary direction.”

Before Cliveden House André worked in London with the Michelin-starred Galvin brothers, at both Galvin at Windows atop the Hilton on Park Lane, and prior to that at Orrery in Marylebone. Renowned for his elegant, modern cuisine, André is on the board of the Academy of Culinary Arts, for their annual awards of excellence, and the MCA, as well as a panel judge of the Roux Scholarship. 

“We are delighted to welcome André to our Corinthia family,” explained Thomas Kochs, managing director of the Corinthia.
“André’s appointment reinforces our commitment to create some of the finest food and drink experiences in the capital. Together, we look forward to bringing an exquisite new offering to our guests.”

Corinthia Hotel London’s restaurant and bar outlets have seen an exciting new direction most recently with the opening of Kerridge’s Bar & Grill, the relaunch of its cocktail bar, Bassoon, in partnership with Sager + Wilde, and the hotel’s afternoon tea in the Crystal Moon Lounge has enjoyed a complete makeover to celebrate the ceremony of a traditional English tea service.

Under the helm and expert guidance of André Garrett, The Northall restaurant will take a new culinary direction - details of the restaurant and its new menu will be released in the New Year.
